    Picture says it all. I see a lot of people not noticing and looking over other people saying it's more than likely fake, so here's a topic.

    Sorry, guys. :icon_ nono2:

    I was on my non cellular iOS device when I saw this at first so I didn't take a good look at it. Now I can see that it's been photoshopped. Oh well.

    Just when we thought we had SOME information on the phone. Well, back to speculations and pictures taken by Michael J. Fox at night time.

    Kinda glad it's fake. I was not mesmerized by the specs for the price.

    Most self respecting android users use chrome or firefox, they've left me no choice but to kill the next apple fanboy I see and produce a much better ****ty mashup of the next iphone.

    But in all actuality thats probably what you will see for it. price vs hardware wise.

    I cant believe i pulled the trigger and posted this after reading a reply in another thread and saw noone answered with the DL correction... I just became one of those nubs I give crap for not reading all the recent topics before posting..lul!:banplease: :yahoo:

    Message from Phil..

    See, here's the thing about Flash pages, folks. Before you have the final product, you have something that's not the final product. And it's put together in things like PhotoShop, Illustrator, etc. And what we have here is an early, rough mock-up.

    (Hey, we said in the post it was an early version of the page. I forget how much people don't actually read. lol)

    Anyhoo, I mentioned in the post comments that we cropped something out. Not gonna put it on the blog, but I think you guys in here deserve to see it and draw your own conclusions.

    I can see the point of not being a final product, but it just seems that they went out of the way to make it look real but just didn't do a good job. This was probably a lot of work to do.

    I'm no complete pro with Photoshop yet, but even I know (well, strongly think) that they could have done an a lot better job with a "mock up". The Bionic picture wouldn't look like it a was rendered by a 2-year old, look how choppy that is. A simple lasso tool or magic wand tool would have fixed that. I doubt they would use old pictures for it. The text used looks like they just got the Text tool and wrote stuff with Times New Roman or Ariel. It looks like someone smudged black onto the old touch sensitive buttons and put new ones on.

    An intermediate photoshop user could likely do better. Why should a "mock up" to get a look of the page have to look crappy?

    Really, the only good photoshopping with this picture is the tab they added "Droid Bionic 4G LTE".

    The big hint yesterday were the dimensions. A graphic artist knows his HxWxD.

    It's Verizon what do you expect? I mean from past experience all the 4G phones were a tad clunky gg LTE radio. Honestly i wouldn't be surpirsed if this indeed was the final product. From all the leaks/rumors which generally are true, we pretty much know the devices specs and form factor already. 1ghz omap, 512 mb of RAM, pentile display 4.3 inch (some speculate 4.5 with 6xx x 9xx reso vs 5xx x 9xx reso) 300 on contract? That's not really far fetched consideirng they charged 300 for the PoS Charge. Bionic is yesterdays news imo a good phone that is coming into the game too late imo to be a revolutionary LTE phone. Only time will tell what the finished product will be.

    I used to think the Atrix was 512 MB Phone and 512MB web top. I was wrong.. It was a rumor that is not true!!!
    A developer at XDA broke it down:This will be the same on the Bionic



    I read that the Webtop Dock uses about 200 MB and the Atrix has 818MB Ram for Apps, with stock apps ( included bloatwares ) also what was said is that you get the full use of the 1G on the phone when it is not docked.


    Here is one of the Links:[STICKY] [FAQ] Official Atrix "Ask A Dev" & FAQ Thread (Last Update: 05/31/2011) - xda-developers

    Nice. Except the fact that all the leaks suggest that there is only 512 MB of RAM on the Bionic. Not that it's an issue mind you.

    Two things I'm glad this person didn't do:
    1) Photoshop this correctly
    2) Put fake hyped specs on the phone like a qHD Retina SUPERAMOLED+ display, 2 gigs of RAM, TI OMAP 4460 DC processor and 12 MP camera...

    We'd be in for a shiatstorm with those expectations

    That was for the Old Bionic.. The new is 1GB DDR2 not 512MB DDR2.
