    BASKING RIDGE, N.J., and LIBERTYVILLE, Ill. – Verizon Wireless and Motorola Mobility, Inc. (NYSE: MMI), today announced DROID BIONIC™ by Motorola will be exclusively available beginning Sept. 8.

    DROID BIONIC is the first Verizon Wireless smartphone to combine 4G LTE with the power of dual-core 1 GHz processors, 1 GB of RAM and a stunning 4.3-inch qHD display – all in a sleek form factor that makes it the thinnest 4G LTE smartphone from Verizon Wireless. Customers can expect to fly across the Web on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network with download speeds of 5 to 12 Mbps and upload speeds of 2 to 5 Mbps in 4G LTE mobile broadband coverage areas.

    DROID BIONIC introduces a host of groundbreaking applications and accessories that turn the device into a multimedia hub, a ruler of remote access and a purveyor of virtuality. DROID BIONIC introduces ZumoCast™ by Motorola, an application that lets customers bring their digital world of videos, music, pictures and documents stored on their computers to their handset via remote access. With its revolutionary Webtop application, DROID BIONIC can beam a full-featured Firefox® Web browser 4.0, email or documents to a TV or monitor, like the separately purchased Lapdock™ with a 11.6” screen, keyboard and integrated trackpad.

    Accessories such as the HD Station let DROID BIONIC users turn the phone into an entertainment center or home office. Customers can view pictures, video, and content from the DROID BIONIC on any HDTV or monitor by connecting a separately sold HDMI cable. They can also take a conference call while editing documents and surfing the Web. And, of course, the DROID BIONIC lets customers share their 4G LTE signal with up to five Wi-Fi-enabled devices when they activate the Verizon Wireless Mobile Hotspot.

    Contract Specifics

    In this press release, they mention that you must sign up for specific data plans to get the discounted price. So, will this keep me from getting it and remaining grandfathered in unless I pay the full retail price. I know there are some VZW reps out there that can answer this.

    I really like the look of this phone overall, but how much sweeter would it be if Verizon moved their ugly @$$ logo to the back. I guess a nice cover should be able to hide that though...

    since these are the only advertised plans for verizon, they put that there. If you are grandfathered, its been discussed before that upgrading your phone, if you are grandfathered, will NOT affect your plan.

    You are ok. Go in, say you are eligible for a phone upgrade, and you want the Bionic. No changes to your plan (unless you want to change it) should be made. Your current contract will be then extended 2 yrs. Unless you buy full retail
    Don't get your tightie whities in a bunch if you don't like my humor or get offended when I skip putting smiley faces all over. IF you cannot handle online comments and get bent out of shape, go home.

    so when they say available online sept. 8th............does that mean 12:01am (tonight) Thursday or like sometime during the morning tomorrow? Getting on a plane and need it over-nighted (and in my hands) by Friday 6pm or I have to wait a week. Shipping has always been good with VZ for me living in Philly usually less than 24hours.

    If you dial *611 and talk to a rep you can order the phone RIGHT NOW and you get free overnight FedEx so you have it tomorrow! I just ordered it and some screen protectors. The rep said I am still on unlimited data and I don't have to sign up for a 4G plan. It will come to me all set up so that when 4G hits my area in two weeks it will automatically switch from 3 to 4G. So basically all I had to do was ask for the phone, they confirmed my eligibility, and had me go through the automated contract renewal stuff. I'm having it shipped to my office so I can make sure someone is available to sign for it!!!!!
    Was: D1 running Project Elite 6.5 w/ ChevyNo1's 1ghz LV kernel!
