    What is Bionic Targa XT875 vs Droid Bionic?

    Ok, call me uninformed. I am in the market for a new case/cover for my Bionic. I've gone to VZW's website and have looked up covers for my phone and don't see f whole lot of selection. Also, I'm not a buyer at the $49.00 cost for the combo set. When I owned a Samsung Fascinate, I had a split hard plastic case which worked wonderfully.

    I have been google'ing searching for cases and covers.....and pardon my ignorance, but...I've seen cases that are designed for Targa XT875 and Droid Bionic. What's the difference between these two phones?

    I've also seen pictures of cases where the on/off button is displayed on the right hand side at the top. My phone the button is on the top and on the left hand side.

    I've also taken a look at my version of OS and do see....xt875.

    Anyone have any recommendations?

    Taking a stab but i'm guessing the swapped button version my be one released early out of the USA?
    I might suggest the case holster combo From VZ as the case has a pop out stand, fits either standard battery or extended and fits into the numerous accessories available.

    I believe the Targa was the initial Bionic version but was delayed & scrapped for the version we have now.

    Actually Targa is the current bionic we have. Etna was the one they scrapped.

    Targa was renamed the Bionic for whatever reason. Otterbox makes a good case expensive though.

    Pretty sure the XT875 was the model shown at CES 2011 last January. Everyone loved it. Which I guess is why the decided to scrap it and start almost completely from new but keeping the name, releasing it in September instead.

    No it was XT865 Etna. That was scrapped and the bionic released as XT875 Targa.
