    DROID Bionic Poses for New Photo




    [​IMG]




    A New picture of the Bionic showed up on Droid Life this morning.. A source told them that it will have a Pentile screen the same as DROIDX2 and DROID3, but for whatever reason there was far less ghosting. The device is light and more responsive than expected. It could be due to the extra RAM and that sleek new design? I am waiting patiently for this one. How about you guys!!!

    The hype and delays has killed it for me.

    Let's hope it drops soon. If the SGS2 arrives soon after, according to the latest rumor, it will be a very nice end-of-summer buying season. Well, I sure hope so, been sitting on an upgrade since last November....

    The D1 was my first smartphone and I bought that on a whim (no research at all). I'm currently waiting on the SGS2, Bionic, or something else to replace my D1. Thus, this is my first time being in anticipation of a smartphone to come out. Is it always like this? In other words, is it normal to have virtually zero confirmed specs (or even many pictures) this close to a release date?

    I feel like this phone has to be the most amazing thing in existence given all the hype. it's definitely getting annoying not hearing anything about a concrete release date...

    The people over at Droid-Life are saying it's looking more and more like an Early September launch. Hopefully by the then Galaxy S2 is out, should be a good battle if they both get released around the same time.

    Motorola better have all the bugs worked out of the Bionic when it does get released, unlike the Droid X2.

    Far less ghosting...either hardware or software was tweaked if it has the exact same screen as the Droid 3 and DX2.

    I might have to go back on my "if it comes in Sept Imma wait" stance..lol. Damn this technology addiction!!!!!

    I really (let me state that again) REALLY, hope this phone doesn't end up being a bust. I got tired of waiting, and got a REVO before the whole tier data plan thing came full circle. My gf is still holding onto her upgrade so I (yes I) can get this phone. How great is she? But this phone BETTER be worth the hype/wait/upgrade/updates/etc...

    August would be nice but if it September I can wait...well I have to wait til Oct 6 for my NE 2 discount which is $100. Hopefully by then it drops in price and has the kinks worked out.

    I liked the original Bionic look more.

    This one just looks kinda boring IMO...

    Sure about that? My last 100 was when I got the Droid and then they bumped it down to 50 I believe. And after this use no more discount...

    That looks exactly like the D3 no? Why waste real estate with that silly lip on the bottom if there is no keyboard???

    Almost. And I too don't understand the slip.

    But maybe it'll look better when we see a more clear photo.

    Bet the bootloader is encrypted. And that don't-call-it-MotoBLUR launcher is not something I'm enamored with. I want to just scroll through all my apps, not side-swipe through screens like I'm using an iPhone.

    All the waiting just makes me want the Nexus Prime to come out on VZW with LTE in tow. Looks like I'll be sitting on my Droid 2, despite the failing keyboard, unless VZW is willing to give me a newer replacement phone for free.

    Ugh... so disappointing, Motorola. Is it just me, or does it feel like they've lost all of their momentum?

    /probably just me

    My upgrade isn't until November. But I (and the rest of Albany) get 4G on August 18th, so this is looking like my next phone...unless they have a surprise Droid4G planned for christmas hahaha

    my OG Droid has a broken Lock/Unlock/Power Button. VZW said they could give me a refurb, but depending on the Tech that looks at it, and he's seen this happen before, they will bill me $299 because they consider it a wear/tear issue, not a manu. defect...if you've seen it before, doesn't that tell you it's a manu. defect?...sorry, had to vent lol...can't wait to upgrade. just wish they didnt screw up the X2 or Droid3 by only making it 3G
