Motorola Droid Bionic to have Netflix support at launch

About a week ago, Verizon Wireless put up a Droid Bionic page on its website, hinting at an imminent release of the uber-delayed new Moto smartphone. While we still cannot say when exactly the Bionic will hit the shelves (it should happen sometime in August), we have a piece of info that may please some potential customers: the new Droid will have Netflix support at launch – just like the LG Revolution, launched back in May.

Droid-life has an image suggesting that Netflix support has been added to another two 4G Android smartphones from VZW, namely the Samsung Droid Charge, and the HTC Thunderbolt.

Netflix aside, the Droid Bionic should feature a 4.3 inch qHD display, dual-core processor, 8MP camera, and, hopefully, Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

August is also the month when the Galaxy S II will arrive in the US (and likely in Verizon’s inventory). So unless you really really want the Moto Droid Bionic, it would be a good idea to check out Sammy’s dual-core offer, too, before buying yourself a new smartphone.

    All hipe if you ask me. Netflix has very few titles available that are in HD. And most those are in 720p. Very few titles are 1080p. Now give me a Hulu Plus client. That would be awesome.

    Where has that information been confirmed?  I think it is just speculation at this point.

    And you know that from where? The Bionic we saw at CES had a 4.3 inch screen, that’s for sure. And since there hasn’t been any official word on the new Bionic’s exact features, let’s just stick to that size for now.

    Here is a similar story

    There’s a DroidDoes graphic page floating around out there and it’s got everyone’s favorite upcoming device right at the forefront: the DROID Bionic, aka a dual-core LTE connected device from Motorola and busting out on Verizon more than likely on August 4th. It’s nothing to scoff at with a 4.3-inch qHD Pentile Matrix display, 8 megapixel camera on the back, and that fat dual-core processor from out good friends at Texas Instruments. That’s right, the TI’s OMAP 4430 1GHz dual-core processor busting out on the nation’s fastest network – Verizon’s 4G LTE. Win! But wait – there’s a mystery afoot – we see some misplaced pixels, and you know what that means – investigation time!
