Verizon announces DROID Bionic 4G and Motorola XOOM tablet

Verizon has been talking up 4G phones as of late and has been giving hints that its press conference (which is later today) will be the location that it finally shows off the devices. Verizon has just announced, via press release, the Droid Bionic and also that it will also be carrying the newly announced Motorola Xoom tablet.

The Droid Bionic 4G is made by Motorola Mobility and packs a dual core processor with each core running at 1GHz, 512 MB RAM, front-facing VGA camera, 8 megapixel camera out back, 4.3-inch qHD quality screen, HDMI connectivity, and a LTE radio to round out the package. 

The device represents a new generation of devices for Verizon, not only because it will be among the first 4G devices to hit the carrier, but also because it's a dual core device. 

Verizon also announced that it will be carrying the Xoom tablet from Motorola. From the press release, "Boasting a dual core processor with each core running at 1 GHz, delivering up to two GHz of processing power, and 10.1-inch widescreen HD display, Motorola XOOM gives Verizon Wireless customers a new type of mobile computing experience on a stylishly thin device that is 4G LTE upgradeable."

Verizon is holding a press conference today at CES 2011 and Neowin will be there live to cover the action as it happens. It is expected that Verizon may release more 4G phones later today but at this time, nothing is confirmed. Another big question still remaining is what will the 4G network cost to the end user and will it be data buckets or unlimited data like Sprint's 4G network.
