The Droid Bionic has been something of a unicorn amongst fans of the Android platform. The device — announced at CES on January 5th of this year — has had an unnaturally long lead up to launch, punctuated by blips on the radar consisting mostly of rumors and leaked photos. The Bionic is a Verizon 4G LTE phone, powered by a dual-core CPU and equipped with the ability to transform into a Linux-based PC (utilizing Motorola’s Webtop platform). This beast of a phone is now most definitely real, and will be available to consumers tomorrow for the sticker-shock-inducing price of $299.99 on contract.

The device is certainly no slouch in the performance department, and Motorola has surrounded the Bionic with a slew of accessories ranging from the practical (such as a fairly standard charging dock) to the wildly questionable (the $299.99 laptop dock). So is Big Red’s most expensive handset worth the cost and the wait? Can it knock out other contenders in Verizon’s 4G lineup? And can you pull the trigger on this phone when challengers like Samsung’s Galaxy S II phones are just around the corner? I’ll make a brave attempt to answer such heady questions in my full review below — so hang tight and keep on reading.
