The Droid Bionic 4G is also capable of accessing Motorola’s Lapdock and WebTop optional accessories they designed originally for use with the Motorola Atrix 4G handset.
The Lapdock optional laptop feature allows for porting of the Motorola Droid Bionic 4G handset into an 11.5 inch display that is built into a laptop shell. The WebTop option adds three USB ports and an HDMI out slot to the Droid Bionic 4G handset, allowing for connection to multiple USB and HDMI capable devices.

HTML web browsing and support for the Adobe Flash media player are present, and in the form of third-party applications, Facebook, Photobucket, Twitter and Picasa apps have been preloaded. A YouTube video player has also been installed, and the on board audio and video players support all major file formats.
Motorola added dual cameras to the Droid Bionic 4G Android handset, a rear facing eight megapixel and front facing chat cam which also offers video call functionality. The rear facing eight megapixel camcorder can record in 1080P HD at up to 30 frames per second, and offers auto focus, touch to focus, face detection, panorama picture mode and LED flash features.
The Motorola Droid Bionic 4G offers a 4.3 inch capacitive touchscreen with support for 16 million colors and multi-gesture navigation, and 540 x 960 pixel resolution. A protective layer of scratch resistant Corning Gorilla Glass overlays the display, and offers glare reduction properties as well.
