Droid Bionic will be available Sept. 8 for $299.99

The Motorola Droid Bionic, on Verizon Sept. 8
Verizon announced Wednesday morning that the Motorola Droid Bionic will be hitting shelves on Sept. 8, confirming previous reports.

The phone, which could be a credible iPhone competitor as the hot smartphone of the fall, is the carrier’s first dual-core LTE phone.

The phone has a 1GHZ processor, 1GB of RAM, 4.3-inch screen and 8MP camera with the capability for 1080p video recording.

The Droid Bionic is running Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread. It also has the capability to act as a webtop — much like the Motorola Atrix — through a dock that puts the phone’s display on a laptop-sized screen.

The phone will be $299.99 with a two-year agreement, and will require a minimum $39.99 talk plan and a $30 2GB data plan.

Adding accessories to the phone becomes a bit pricier. The webtop dock will go on sale for around the same price as the phone itself, $299.97.
