Droid Bionic Getting an Upsized Screen?

The Droid Bionic has been off the radar for some, pulled for what were cited as undisclosed "enhancements." While that sounded like some changes in the internal hardware specs and software, it appears that the Bionic is getting some exterior changes, too.

The latest reports indicate that the Droid Bionic will be getting a 4.5-inch (up from 4.3-inch) qHD screen. It will come with an 8MP rear-facing camera + an undisclosed resolution front-facing camera, support 1080P HD video, and have a 1750mAh battery.

In addition, the images show off a laptop dock. Motorola has said for some time that it was aiming to have laptop docks for other phones besides the Atrix 4G, coming later in the year.

Additionally, it looks like the Bionic will sport Android 2.3.4, which is the latest (for now) version of Gingerbread.
The real question is still: when? The Bionic's launch date is TBD, as is the price. Still, you can see a few shots below and drool.

It's about time, I've been waiting to hear anything about the bionic since they announced it. I'm not exactly excited about the screen upgrade though, 4.5" is huge!!! Should be a killer phone, hopefully they release it sooner than later.

Does anyone have the atrix with the dock?

That is a pretty huge screen and whoever comes up with the codenames for Android releases is a genius; they all sound tasty: Honeycomb and Gingerbread

"Yeah, so what will be the next popular food name, Marshmallow? All in all, I will make the leap to Android by the end of this year, this is a good contender, though I it might be to over-sized for my taste. But having that big screen , 8 Mp camera and full HD recording, it just might be right."

"Hey Drake, I seriously thought you were joking, till I went to Wikipedia, this is hilarious, the founder of Android must have worked at a bakery before he was a programmer."

Bigger screen yet the same battery rating as my HTC Evo. So in the end it will have even crappier battery life. I personally think 4.3" is plenty big enough for a phone screen. As it is with a case on the phone it barely fits into my dress pants pockets.
