Motorola publishes specifications of upcoming DROID Bionic smartphone on website

Now this has got to be one of those classic "Oh no they didn't!" cases in action, although most people would probably have not expected Motorola, of all companies, to have made such as slip-up. Apparently, the company has somehow managed to leak some precious information about an upcoming DROID Bionic smartphone on its own website. Needless to say, the mistake was discovered and the website's content modified to appear as if the information never existed, but not before its screenshots have started circulating around the depths of cyberspace.

Have you been lusting for more information about Motorola's upcoming Bionic smartphone? Well, the good news is that users do not have to wait any longer in order to find out what kind of specifications Motorola's upcoming DROID Bionic smartphone will sport when it is finally released, for it seems that Motorola has somehow managed to accidently post up the complete specifications for the aforementioned smartphone on its developer page, well ahead of schedule. Nice.

According to a report published by Droid-Life, the model number for the Bionic that was listed on Motorola's specification page may be referencing the older XT865 which is already available for sale on the market, but that is more of a typographical error on Motorola's part, as the XT865 sports specifications which are vastly different from those that were listed out on the site. For example, Droid-Life has pointed out that the original Bionic only had 512MB of memory and utilized a Tegra 2 system-on-a-chip (SoC) for its processing needs, whereas the phone that was listed on Motorola's developer homepage boasted a 1GHz Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 dual-core processor and 1GB of memory.

In addition, the leaked specifications from Motorola has also revealed that the upcoming Bionic will be a CDMA-only mobile phone which boasts built-in support for 4G mobile broadband  connectivity via LTE, HDMI 1.4, along with 4GB of secure storage and 9GB of non-removable shared storage. Lastly, the smartphone will also feature a 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen display that sports a native resolution of 960 x 540 (qHD), an eight-megapixel rear-facing camera, a VGA camera for the front and most importantly, will be preloaded with version 2.3.4 of the Android operating system. Now, all we need is for Motorola to conveniently "leak" out some information about an expected release date, along with pricing details, for the upcoming Bionic smartphone and everything will be just right.

Oh, and just one more thing; Motorola has already pulled the information about the DROID Bionic smartphone from its developer page, as we would have expected. But thanks to the power of screenshots and the Internet, a copy of the full specifications sheet has been published by Droid-Life, which you can access from this link if you are interested in finding out more about the upcoming smartphone.
