"Rule all machines"
A leaked video allegedly shows an official teaser for Motorola's Droid Bionic smartphone. The commercial, which was posted on YouTube by DroidLife, does not present images the phone itself, but it does resemble the style of Verizon's previous Droid segments. The words "Rule All Machines" pop up on the screen in between fighting scenes between a woman and what appear to be robots.
The Bionic is expected to integrate a dual-core TI OMAP processor, LTE radio, and a 4.3-inch display with 540x960 resolution. Other features are said to include an eight-megapixel primary camera and a VGA front-facing sensor for video calls.
The teaser video appears to reference September as a launch window, corroborating rumors pointing to September 8 as a ship date. The device is said to be one of Verizon's most expensive handsets, potentially setting customers back $300 with a new two-year contract.
