The Motorola Droid Bionic has been energetically expected ever given a phenomenon in January, in annoy of countless delays. But could Google’s new buyout be a thing that dampens fan unrestrained for a high-end smartphone? Will a stirring Google Nexus Prime kill it completely?
People have been vehement about a Motorola Droid Bionic for so prolonged since it’s going to be a really well-equipped device. It’ll have a 1GHz TI OMAP4430 dual-core processor, a 4.3-inch qHD shade and an 8-megapixel camera able of 1080p video.
In other words, it’ll be a estimable opposition for a likes of a Samsung Galaxy S 2 and a HTC Sensation.
Now that Google has taken over Motorola, though, there are all demeanour of questions concerning Motorola’s hardware line-up.
Droid Bionic buzz
There’s been a good understanding of hum surrounding a Google-Motorola deal, customarily concerning a reason for Google’s bid. While it’s definite that patents are high adult on Google’s agenda, we shouldn’t forget that Motorola is a clever hardware association with a abounding story of building strong-selling phones.
This is because many people have understandably insincere that Motorola will be a naturally production partner for a stirring Google Nexus Prime, Google’s subsequent flagship device.
This is set for recover around Christmas time – a same entertain of a year in that a Motorola Droid Bionic will be released. Will people assume (however erroneously) that a Motorola Droid Bionic will not be scrupulously supported, and that a Motorola-produced Nexus device would hit it into second category citizen territory?
Could a Motorola Droid Bionic come to be seen as a Nokia N9-style stopgap?
Can’t keep a good Droid down
We doubt it. We’ve already highlighted that Motorola is be no means guaranteed to get a Google Nexus Prime gig, as according to Google this will have been staid approach behind in Dec 2010 – good before a buyout understanding was resolved (and presumably even considered). Early rumours that Samsung is in primary position (excuse a pun) advise that Motorola competence not get a moment during a central Google device for during slightest another year.
Even if Motorola were to developer a Google Nexus Prime, we can’t see it destabilising a sales of a Motorola Droid Bionic. Put simply, a Nexus operation simply isn’t a blockbuster code on a scale of iPhone or Samsung Galaxy. Google’s been some-more meddlesome in growing a wider Android height than pulling a specific handset, and has tended to bodge a sales strategies to boot. Result: a Nexus name doesn’t utterly have a same mainstream cachet as a big-hitting rivals.
Indeed, a usually problem we can foresee is if a buyout itself affects Motorola’s ability to pull a Droid Bionic. Will it be too assigned by government changes and restructuring processes to give a grievous device a launch it deserves? Only time will tell.
