    Droid Bionic Makes Official Appearance on DroidDoes.com

    [​IMG]

    You might have seen this headline before, but this time it's the real deal! Today the Droid Bionic 4G has officially become apart of the Droid Lineup on Verizon's DroidDoes.com website. Like with past Droid launches, this one features a twist with the text "Awaiting Blogger Data Entry", countdown clocks and four places to input codes that will appear on BoingBoing, Boy Genius Report, Joystiq, and Android Central.com. We can only assume these codes will reveal video details about the upcoming Droid we've all been waiting for.

    Thanks for the tip CaptM and be sure to continue the discussion already in progress here: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/motorola-droid-bionic/168494-bionic-up-drioddoes-com.html

    Well it looks like the stuff on droiddoes.com is all for a scavenger hunt. Looks like the person in this article figured out most of it.

    Mysterious Droid Bionic Landing Page Appears On DroidDoes.com

    I'm kind of mad I don't have an android phone so I can't download the app and look for the prizes :icon_evil:

    Looks like all three of us will be buying our Bionic instead of winning it :dry:

    It is definitely an official VZW app, if you go to the Droiddoes landing page, it has an animated ad for it on the lower left.

    Try rebooting your phone.
    My D1 has no problem loading it. Takes a few seconds but it works just fine.

    I'm running PE4.2 fyi with launcher pro. (I've found any other launcher makes it sluggish)

    Uninstalled immediately brought my D1 to a halt. Verizon wants it to mess with our phones so we think we need a new one right away.

    I got as far as being able to grab the guardian while building the bionic before I got a hotboot. I'm running SS 5.4 with the lv 1ghz kernel on my D1.

    I'll try again later, I'm at work right now.
