If the DROID Bionic Ends Up Being Verizon’s Version of the Motorola Photon 4G, Will You Be Disappointed?

All talk around these parts has been about the DROID Bionic lately, since well, it was announced almost 8 months ago and was supposed to be the device to change the Verizon world.  Since Motorola and Verizon can’t seem to get it to work properly with 4G LTE though, companies like Sprint have swept in to release a phone that many are thinking is exactly what we’ll see from the Bionic, the Photon 4G.  I’m just wondering if we’ll all be disappointed by the time it gets here if indeed it does end up being nothing but a prettier version of Sprint’s beastly 4G phone?  

We’ve been handed the the Photon 4G training guide (in the gallery below) by our friends at Motorola and I’ve got to tell you, that I don’t see the Bionic ending up any different except in the looks, processor and price departments.  We are fully expecting the Bionic to run on an OMAP4 dual-core processor, retail for somewhere around $299 on-contract, and have a much more refined look than this jagged-edged thing that’s headed to Sprint.

But the other specs all appear to matchup:  8MP camera, front VGA camera (2MP has been rumored, but would surprise us), 4.3″ screen (4.5″ rumored, but unlikely), 1GB RAM, 4G, Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), HDMI-out, webtop app and accessories, and the newest version of Blur that can be found on the DROID3.

Or is it possible that Verizon and Motorola have a surprise up their sleeves?  It’s pretty obvious that the Photon 4G has a super impressive set of specs, but the Bionic has been lifted to this status that would be hard for any device to live up to.  Are you OK with the Bionic being Verizon’s Photon or do you want more?  I’d love a surprise to be packed in like a 4.5″ screen that’s not a PenTile matrix or upgraded front shooter, just not sure either are happening.

What do you guys think?

*Note – the spec list below says 720p for the Photon, but that’s clearly wrong.

    The exhibit is  called "Picasso to Koons: Artist as
    Jeweler." You probably will 
    recognize the names of
    barbour
    jacket
    many of the more than one hundred artists  represented at the barbour
    jackets
    show. Names like
    Georges Braque, Max Ernst,  Alexander
    Calder and Salvador Dali, Robert Rauschenberg and Louise Nevelson and barbour
    uk.

      One hundred thirty of the rings, necklaces,
    barbour
    ladies
    and 
    brooches are from the collection of art expert Diane Venet. She helped
    to set  up the exhibit.

      Ms. Venet 
    met French sculptor Bernar Venet about twenty-six years ago. A short
    time  later, he gave her a piece of quilted
    jackets
    silver 
    designed as a ring. The ring celebrated the fact that they would soon be  married. Ms. Venet said it was the first
    piece of barbour
    quilted jackets
    an 
    artist’s jewelry she had ever had.

      As time 
    passed, Bernar Venet exchanged pieces with mens barbour
    jacket
    artist friends
    who sometimes created jewelry.  Ms.
    Venet’s personal collection grew and grew, and she decided to exhibit it  with works of barbour
    mens
    the other artists.

      Holly 
    Hotchner is the director of the Museum   of Arts and Design. She  says the ladies barbour
    jackets
    museum 
    considers jewelry as one of the most important forms of art today. She
    notes  that a piece of jewelry
    kid’s barbour
    jacket
    is not  just a small version of a sculpture.

    Absolutely I would be disappointed and I wouldn’t understand why anyone wouldn’t be.. After all the delays afters all the design changes after this bull crap and it’s basically we get the hand me down of what another carrier has already has and we have to pay more for it??? Are you really asking a silly question like that? Not to mention Verizon customers have not gotten any other choices in the department of 4g and Dual Core you’ve had to either get one or the other because of the Bionic was and still is supposed to be the first Dual Core Flagship device so all the people who wanted to upgrade to something that powerful but couldn’t. And then when it’s finally released we get exactly the same phone as the other carrier has had now.

     Why wouldn’t people be disappointed that’s BS? I’ll wait for something else or completely jump carriers. Every other carrier has had at least something in the form of DC and 4g but not VZW. We’ve had to wait or go ahead and get into a 2 year agreement with one or the either because of the Bionic. I will be rather pissed if this is exactly what we are being given. Plus after all these delays SOMETHING has to be wrong with it! So we may very well be not only getting the Photon/Targa/Bionic/Atrix but a rather buggy one at that and no kickstand at that WTF??? All this time and couldn’t find the time to add one? Motorola sucks big floppy donkey D*CK with their locked bootloaders and delaying BS. It should have more ram,higher resolution, a faster processor, better cam front and back plus a kickstand unlocked bootloader, a free additional battery,car dock,webtop dock all for 200 bucks after all this shit that VZW and Motorola has done. Who’s with me?? If not here I come Samsung or HTC and I’ll be like MOTO who? I mean after 8 months what’s another couple, but I’m sure VZW when the first quad core phones start coming they’ll make sure that we won’t see one until 2020.

    I hope everyone realized I’m exaggerating for the most part, but I will be extremely disappointed if we are given the same phone after all the hype of it changing the phone world and being something everyone will be jealous of blah blah blah and then they finally reveal the product and say “Tada here’s the NEEEWWW PHOT… I mean ATRI.. OOPS DAMN IT what’s this piece of SH*T phone called again?” ” Oh the Bionic!” Interviewer – “Tell us what set this apart from the Atrix and Photon 4g.” Sanjay replies “The name. No more comments.”

    I think the writing style of DL is becoming more butthurt by the day, the Photon is amazing (on paper) why would you be dissapointed if it came out on Verizon? Oh because your cognitive dissonance is on par with that of Appleites. Just my two.

    Look dont play with me right now Kellex; we have already seen the docs and accessories to the Bionic. So this has to be a long shot! This phone may come to Verizon, but not as the Bionic…… I hope!

    Ditto on the 4.5 inch non pentile good quality HD screen. If the screen is pentile/sucks then I’ll be very disappointed.

      This is officially the first comment I’ve seen where someone is looking past the Bionic and the GSII……

    So you don’t want Droid 3 with LTE/1gb ram but you want the SG2 with LTE right???

    Same shit. There’s nothing special about any of these phones. Not yet at least.

    I never understood the hype behind Galaxy s2…

    Crappy Atrix already benchmarks the same with GB.

    Whooptie fucken dooo. The only improvement is the Camera/video.
