The 4G BattleThe Motorola Droid Bionic connects to data networks via 4G LTE. That's an important component in all of this. The high-speed connection is very much the future, and speculation abounds that Apple's iPhone will come with 4G, as well. If that's the case, expect both devices to battle it out for total dominance.
The Motorola Droid Bionic is all the rage in the Android marketplace right now. The device, which comes with a big, 4.3-inch qHD display, 4G connectivity, and Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread is widely recognized as the most compelling smartphone on the market right now, save for the iPhone 4. So far, the critics have celebrated its functionality, and as Google prepares to acquire Motorola Mobility, the Droid Bionic is being looked at as the device the search giant can build on when it takes control over the mobile vendor. All that excitement surrounding the Droid Bionic doesn't fail, however, to recognize that the device could very well be a major contender with the iPhone 5 when Apple finally launches that smartphone. After all, they will likely both connect to the Web via 4G, they will both deliver the latest and greatest versions of their respective operating systems. And perhaps most importantly, they're vying for the same customers. Simply put, the iPhone and Droid Bionic will be the mobile market's best fight in the coming year. Here's why.
