Wow 249? Really? If that's true, ill be getting a dock for it too. I REALLY wanted a SGS2 but Verizon's supposedly getting the almighty Nexus Prime which unfortunately i cant wait it out for. My Droid X has served me well tho. Lol
How will you be eligible for $249 price if you have a droid X? Didn't the droid x get released just over a year ago?

I too have the Droid X and bought it launch day last July. I have been up for an upgrade since June 3rd of this year, I update my phone every 11 months on a two year contract for like the last 4 years with the exception of this year, because I'm waiting for something really impressive.

i'm going to Costco to get mine. $300 for the car dock, the multimedia dock and a spare battery and charger. the accessories alone is half of that.

he lied... pricing is not yet available for the Bionic. That was more than likely a gestimate you took to heart.

The rep was wrong, I'm afraid. Listen up, Droid Bionic enthusiasts: 30min ago I went to a new VZW store in my area that I hadn't been to before; just wanted to confirm that they'd receive the phone on the 8th & check what time they opened. You can place pre-orders in the stores NOW (apparently stores have been taking pre-orders for at least the past few days). The phone is priced at $299.99. If you pre-order, you pay the $299.99 up front; if you're due an upgrade discount, it'll be refunded to you on the day you pick up the phone (minus applicable sales tax).
BTW I had a chance to play with a Bionic, too. Not too shabby. Yeah the design is basic/plain as heck. But it's not totally humungous & actually felt comfortable in my medium-sized hand; not too heavy, either. I'll admit I'm no fan of the Blur stuff, but the operation is snappy & I didn't encounter any lapse when rotating the phone & opening/switching through apps.

I wonder how long until amazon drops the price. I think the gs2 excites me a bit more.

It's gonna be this or the Prime, my X didn't take too kindly to 2.3 and Froyo is not nearly as good.
I think an unlocked bootloader will make or break the bionic for me. if it's locked I'll wait a month for Prime, if it's unlocked I may opt to buy it.

I am curious how well the Bionic is going to sell. The fact that VZW is taking a pass on Sammy's GSII hints that there is something else in the pipeline that will eclipse the GSII. Plus the pending release of a new iPhone should further dampen what could have been a sales success if the Bionic had been released back in 2Q of 2011.
I wonder if this is the classic example of a day late and a dollar short?

Try 180 days too late. This would have been great last March but now sort of shma. Now I need to see the galaxy note or at least the Verizon version of it.

Does anyone know if wirefly.com is going to have this phone
Just saw a commercial during the Wisconsin v UNLV game confirming 9/8 release!
Additional leaks show that September 8th is the launch date for the Motorola DROID BIONIC
