Motorola Droid Bionic Words and Images Flutter Out of FCC

August 8, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The FCC has publicly (or a mistake?) opened the pages of the Motorola Droid Bionic’s manual, bringing out some expected as well as unexpected information. The data that most sparked our interest was the inclusion of the phone in the World Phone GSM capabilities genre.

From what we had seen (or heard) from the past few weeks, the device was set to be an LTE data smartphone. So, when the manual puts it as having GSM hardware for world roaming, that would mean Verizon would have the phone (its first LTE device) usable with voice outside of the US.

A cluster of screenshots of the Android 2.3 device (front and back) are also fluttering around. A glimpse at the snaps has told us what we had been expecting- that the Bionic is the Targa.

The other notable features were the micro-HDMI port that the phone carried along with the 4.3-inch qHD display. But these two were kind of a given, so we haven’t learned anything new apart from the GSM/CDMA/LTE info.

The thing is that we haven’t heard about the dual-mode mention from Motorola before, so we are not sure whether what we have seen from the manual could turn out to be true or not. Nothing about the release date was heard, although a small whisper of September being the entry month is doing the rounds.

The price, though not officially announced, could mark down to a minimum of $250, given that Verizon has a tendency to charge premium for 4G devices (this might have the contract nailed to it).

Cast an eye on the images and tell us what you think.
