Verizon Wireless and Motorola Mobility said the Droid Bionic by Motorola will be exclusively available beginning September 8.

Droid Bionic is the first Verizon Wireless smartphone to combine 4G LTE with the power of dual-core 1 GHz processors, 1 GB of RAM and a stunning 4.3-inch qHD display – all in a sleek form factor that makes it the thinnest 4G LTE smartphone from Verizon Wireless.

Customers can expect to fly across the Web on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network with download speeds of 5 to 12 Mbps and upload speeds of 2 to 5 Mbps in 4G LTE mobile broadband coverage areas.

Droid Bionic introduces a host of groundbreaking applications and accessories that turn the device into a multimedia hub, a ruler of remote access and a purveyor of virtuality.

This is the first big announcement to come out of Motorola Mobility since it Google’s recent decision to buy the company. Google surprised many high-tech watchers with its $12.5 billion acquisition bid for key Android phone maker Motorola Mobility in mid-August. But the search giant is believed to be very happy to have acquired Motorola Mobility and its thousands of patents.

Droid Bionic introduces ZumoCast by Motorola, an application that lets customers bring their digital world of videos, music, pictures and documents stored on their computers to their handset via remote access.

With its revolutionary Webtop application, Droid Bionic can beam a full-featured Firefox Web browser 4.0, email or documents to a TV or monitor, like the separately purchased Lapdock with a 11.6″ screen, keyboard and integrated trackpad.

Accessories such as the HD Station let Droid Bionic users turn the phone into an entertainment center or home office. Customers can view pictures, video, and content from the Droid Bionic on any HDTV or monitor by connecting a separately sold HDMI cable.

They can also take a conference call while editing documents and surfing the Web. And, of course, the Droid Bionic lets customers share their 4G LTE signal with up to five Wi-Fi-enabled devices when they activate the Verizon Wireless Mobile Hotspot.

The Droid Bionic also includes the following features:

  • Powered by Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread
  • Dual-core 1 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM
  •  4.3-inch qHD screen using scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass with dual-layer anti-reflective coating
  • 8-megapixel autofocus camera with flash and 1080p HD video capture
  •  Front-facing camera for video chat over 4G LTE, 3G or Wi-Fi
  •  MOTOPRINT app to print via Wi-Fi-enabled printers
  •  Mirror Mode with HDMI out (HDMI cable required) supporting 1080p HD video playback
  •  Multi-window options for multitasking with ease when using the Webtop application
  •  Business Ready with advanced security policies; resizable and scrollable email, calendar and task widgets; device and SD card encryption; and Citrix GotoMeeting and Citrix Receiver for
