The release of the highly anticipated iPhone 4 for Verizon is finally approaching. This exciting news comes behind the lurking shadow of the ‘Thunderbolt’ release 1Q and the awe-inspiring ‘Bionic’ set for release in early 2Q. What does this mean for Verizon and the iPhone lovers? You can first expect the same UI of earlier iPhone builds, as well a poorly produced phone with antenna issues. How many user’s will still want their iPhone 4 after hearing about where Google Android platform is taking their phones capabilities. The timing seems poor for Apple as they have completed the deal with the one of the largest service provider’s in the United States. The iPhone 4 has been anything but disappointing this past year and with Android domination on the rise, who will actually buy this phone? Time will tell, let us know what you think…
Motorola Droid Bionic will hit the stores after Verizon iPhone.
Aside from its much-anticipated Android Honeycomb powered Xoom Tablet, Motorola also announced another device at Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, the Motorola Droid Bionic. This new Android-powered Motorola device will use the CDMA, as well as the LTE technology of Verizon Wireless.
Droid Bionic’s touchscreen display resolution is 540 x 960 pixels, and will run using 512 MB RAM and 2048 MB ROM. The biggest plus factor of this device is its processor, a dual-core 1 GHz. Motorola’s Droid Bionic will also sport two cameras, front (VGA) and rear (8 megapixel) facing to support video calling.
This device will be sold by Verizon Wireless exclusively, and will hit physical stores, as well as Verizon’s online store on the second quarter of this year. Surprisingly, this Android FroYo device will come after Verizon’s “heat months” (February, March, April) of selling Verizon iPhone.
According to latest credible reports, Verizon Wireless will start selling its CDMA Apple iPhones next month. The biggest mystery until now is whether or not CDMA iPhone will also support the LTE network, which is obviously faster, and more efficient.
Looks like Verizon iPhone will have a lot of “internal” competitions. Aside from Motorola’s Droid Bionic, HTC’s Thunderbolt is also one of the highlights of Verizon Wireless’ first quarter bonanza. HTC Thunderbolt will also use Verizon’s LTE network.
