    Mororola Droid Bionic Ads Arrive at Best Buy


    Earlier today we had a rumor that the Droid Bionic might come on August 26th. While there is no confirmation of this, some other signs seem to suggest that it is possible; the newest sign is that ads for the phone have begun showing up in Best Buy's Buyer's Guide. Some of the primary specs have been confirmed by the ad, but it still doesn't give a specific date or price. Regardless, the device showing up in Best Buy fliers is a very good sign!

    YAY!!!!!
    Rooted OG D1 running Liquid Gingerbread 2.6, Project Elite v6.5, Droid Concepts 12 and many more!
    Chevy No.1 Low V 1.1 Ghz Kernal

    A Droid Bionic evolved into a Rezound which then evolved into a Nexus! Running whatever Rom I'm feeling for the day.

    Interestingly enough, laptops having been using 1.3MP cameras for their webcams for years. Just how many MP to you plan on pushing through your connection and still expect crystal clear voice quality?

    From what i've read, verizon's 4G connection is on par,give or take a couple of mbps, with a wifi/wired connection which a laptop IS running on. I rather use the 4g connection I will have available to push 1.3 mps than 0.3mps. I honestly never seen a VGA camera phone so Im not sure what to expect but from many many reviewers no one likes vga over 1.3 ffc

    I with you on that, with all the hype around this phone you would think Moto would make a bit more current.

    I'm sure we'll be fine with a VGA FFC. How often are you really going to use it???

    I keep in touch with friends and family out of state. And each one of them after getting a phone with ffc has been bugging me to tango/oovoo/skype with them. We even use it the hard way (mirror in front of my rear cam) so im already using it pretty often. The FFC is just to ease what im already doing. Id just like for it to be clear and not murky looking or w.e. complaing people have with VGA

    Sure, a 1.3 or even 2 MP camera would pull better video than a VGA, however, Say I want to skype my with her iPhone4G (3g) phone that has a 2mp camera on it. Who is going to receive the better end of the deal? With my Bionic 4G, I am easily going to receive her 2MP quality, however, would she receive the same quality if I were transmitting a 1.3MP or even 2MP back at her? Quick answer, No.

    I believe that is the reason why Moto has kept the VGA, because it will still have fair video, and it will transmit faster to someone whose phone has either 3G or 4G. Good Point?

    Well most programs like Skype and Oovoo (I believe) only use max resolutions of 640 by 480 without you having to pay for HD streaming anyways. I don't know if this is how it works for phones too but I still don't think you're going to be streaming video in a much higher resolution than that. And we don't know how well the VGA camera works on the Bionic so let's not knock it yet.
