    Verizon is selling the Driod Charge for $299 and the Thunderbolt for $249. I think that the chances are slim to none that the Bionic will be $199.. It will be the same price as the charge and hopefully not more...

    I think I'm going to have to disagree with you on this one. The bionic was originally supposed to be $199 and with the photon being priced at 199 its a very good possibility the bionic will remain the same. You can say they beefed it up with new technology but if you look its actually technology that's been out for a min so that really shouldn't affect the price. Hopefully with the evo 3d and photon being $199 the bionic will follow suit. Especially with the fact they are going to sell a ton of these things. So here's hoping to not pissing on the little guy.

    I really hope VZ doesn't go overpricing the Bionic.
    If you want more people to go out of there way to buy it, don't throw a $799 price tag on it.

    $499 would be reasonable, anything lower would be great.

    If its higher, id rather just leave Verizon instead of getting it. If the Bionic specs are true, its basically the same phone as the photon, except maybe a tiny bit better processor.

    If verizon puts it as high as the charge, that just shows how greedy and overpriced verizon is.

    thanks Das! You make a good point Droid, they gotta keep it close to everyone else. I wonder if they economy being as bad as it is if that will help their decision. They know the will screw people with the tiered plan, which is scaring some people away. So maybe if they have an awesome phone that is priced right people will buy it. That's just my .02

    Very true...
    With the tiered prices your getting less for more money.
    The least they could do is release the arguably most anticipated phone on Verizon for a decent price.

    I know I won't be buying if its over 700 off contract, and I am sure there are other who wont as well.

    No I disagree with you on that the 1st Bionic was Dual Core but had 512 MB of DDR2 Ram. The Thunderbolt 748MB of Ram $249.. From the price I got from the guy at Best Buy $299 was listed on the Bionic paper work. So I am not guessing the price $299 is the price under contract. You got to look at it this way This is going to be their flagship phone now. They will not let it go cheaper then the TB and the Charge...

    Didn't it appear on Amazon once for $149 on contract?

    And many articles from the past week have said it is going to be $480 off contract.

    I would expect it to be around the price of the Photon 4G.

    And also don't forget that its BestBuy.
    There prices generally suck.

    For example: EVO 3D off contract Best Buy: 700
    EVO 3D off contract Sprint: 550

    Use some common sense. The Bionic is the dual core, LTE, flagship phone.

    It isn't debuting at a price less than the Droid Charge.

    Well if the argument for pricing is ram then what about the photon, atrix, and evo? And what costs more, dual core or more ram? And I thought we all agreed most sales reps usually have no clue what they're talking about. If best buy had a price sheet I would think it would have been leaked by now. If moto is hurting as bad as they say they are I would think they're not going to sell an overpriced phone. This is all speculation anyway so I'm keeping with the glass Is half full theory and sticking with $199.00 - $50(ne2) = $150 of priceless bionic enjoyment.
