Boot animation for the Motorola DROID Bionic is leaked
Still possibly the third LTE enabled handset for Verizon, the Motorola DROID Bionic is a DROID by birthright after all. That means that no matter which model eventually gets to be called the DROID Bionic (and the smart money is still betting on the Motorola Targa), it will have to have a red-eye boot animation. After all, this has been a tradition of the DROID line dating all the way back to the original Motorola DROID in 2009.

The 7 second video below is part of the boot animation for the Motorola DROID Bionic. And while it is only a quick look, the animation has grown in complexity over the years. The boot screen will look great on the 4.3 inch qHD display on the device, which will be Verizon's first dual-core handset and is still expected to launch this summer after Motorola's "enhancement to make this an even better consumer experience".

Come on Motorola, you better redeem yourself for all this waiting. We've been extremely patient.

We had to wait 8 months between the release of the original DROID and the DROID X, and 9 until the DROID 2. Even if the Bionic doesn't show until July or August, that's still less than a year timetable since the Global and the Pro.

True except for the global and the pro part. Even Moto doesn't use them as bragging rights or anything. But to ur logic, (droid till the next droid) then we would count the Droid X2 which might come out next week. But I really talking about the next big phone to make a big impact. Like the Droid, Droid X and now the Bionic. Basically the flagships. The Droid X2 and Droid 3 will be more like hey we have these phones too. But the Bionic will be the big alternative to the iPhone 5 for Verizon. And the ONLY one really specs wise, unless they get a Galaxy S II or III as well.

Not too exciting. Just a boot animation. Not sure how this equates to whether or not the Bionic/Targa will be a good phone, but to each their own.

Sorry, I just enjoy the different incarnations of the DROID eye. It's certainly better than seeing a still image of the Apple logo.

Until a force close error covers it.

Yes, because when have you owned an Android phone, and how often did you get a force close error?

Perhaps I like the black and white 1970's apple startup. lol. I'm just saying once you have the phone, how many times do you sit and watch it boot up? For the record I have owned almost every android phone that Verizon carries at one time or another. Just because I have a Iphone now does not mean I have anything against Android.

Well, that last comment wasn't directed at you, but the fool who made the force close comment. I understand if you don't geek out, and the eye is coolest on first bootup. But it's still cool to see pride in their products. :)

Yes, especially now that Motorola is LISTENING TO CUSTOMERS and unlocking the bootloader.

I re-watched it. If you look closely and don't blink too much, you can make out the words "Pocketnow.com" in the eye.

First of the targa is not going to replace the bionic that information is false and unreliable, Motoral simply stated that after the CES and consumer advice they are revamping the phone to give it that extra lil oomph to make the customers crap themsleves everytime they pick the phone up.
