    Redesigned Motorola Droid Bionic looks confirmed in Best Buy leak



    [​IMG]

    A new Verizon Photo has been leaked of The Bionic Coming Soon...With the Verizon 4G LTE, ad from Best Buy... The opening line in the promo says "Control It and You Control everything!!! The Droid Bionic is an all-powerful, unstoppable machine.” Powerful language, Lets hope it lives up to the hype!!! After Motorola went back to the drawing board to make this a better phone, I am looking forward to the specs and future leaks on this one.

    Why is it always Best Buy that does this kind of thing? Gives me nightmares of the whole Thunderbolt release date and the scratching of the Bionic after all the predicted release dates back a couple months.

    from that view. looks pretty thin. like iphone 4 and droid 2 had a baby. i really hope it's thinner than the other LTE devices.

    Actually I'm an ex droid owner, currently with the TB :icon_wink:
    For me, it's very difficult to own a locked device. All of my phones have been HTC, I like having access to other kernals that's all. To someone that doesn't care about overclocking,undervolting etc. a locked device is perfect.

    Yes, but look at all of the locked bootloaders that have been rooted. Id be 100% fine using a flagship phone for 3 months in all its technological superiority until it is rooted by community devs. Overclocking is irrelevant on a device that will already be ONE of the fastest on the market. undervolting may help battery life sure...but whyis it absolutely necessary immediately.

    Everyone has different needs/wants. Sure I can wait, I waited two weeks before rooting my current phone. I could care less as I'm not interested in the bionic at all anyways.

    No way... After dealing with the TBolt, I will buy an unlockable bootloader at any chance before buying one thats locked down and encrypted. Rooting is nice, but without being able to load up Custom ROMs, you're at the mercy of the carrier and manufacturer. Imagine the firestorm that HTC and Verizon would be under right now if people couldn't work around their bungling of the Thunderbolt in causing chronic rebooting due to a pushed OTA with no released or leaked fix in the past 2 and a half months since it was initially broke.

    Without being able to load Custom ROMs, in my opinion, any phone released in the future is a POS in waiting.

    Here are the four unanswered questions for me that may help determine if I buy this on launch day, or hold out hope for the Nexus Prime in November:

    1) Bootloader unlockable/relockable or not?
    2) RGB Stripe/SuperLCD qHD, or Pentile qHD screen?
    3) LED Notification Light or not?
    4) 4.3" screen or 4.5"?
    5) Soc: 4430 or 4460?

    The last one isn't a huge deal, just a matter of being on the bleeding edge or not. If the first 3 are satisfactory I'll buy it regardless.

    Having said that, the bootloader will likely be unlocked at some point in the near future regardless if it's locked down at launch or not. And there won't be any custom ROMs cooked up for a while anyway.

    Anxiously awaiting all the details behind this. I've had my original Droid for almost fourteen months now and it's starting to show signs of its age.

    I've been saying for a while that the Bionic would be my next phone, now its just a matter of finding out if it'll be worth jumping on.

    Locked or unlocked bootloader is irrelevant to me, as I don't really have much interest in delving into that side of things.
