Costco cuts Motorola DROID BIONIC to $99 including accessories
If you are looking for a great deal on a high-end Android phone, it will be hard to top the bundle Costco has put together for the Motorola DROID BIONIC. Thanks to an eagle-eyed loyal reader who spotted the offer on the Costco web site, we can tell you that for $99.99 not only do you get the handset, but you also walk out of the store with a navigation dock, extra battery charger and a desktop dock. The value of these accessories alone adds up to more than $100 smackers!

The Motorola DROID BIONIC has lost some of its luster thanks to the sexy looking Motorola DROID RAZR, but the device will still be getting an update to Android 4.0 according to the manufacturer. And just in case the specs have slipped your mind, the DROID BIONIC is equipped with a 4.3 inch qHD display and is powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor with 1GB of RAM aboard. There is 16GB of native storage that can be expanded to as high as 48GB using a microSD card. An 8MP camera captures video at 1080p and a front facing camera takes self-portraits and  helps you to video chat.

Remember, the Motorola DROID BIONIC launched at $299.99 with a 2-year pact, which of course needs to be signed for you to take advantage of that $99.99 deal. In essence, you are picking up what will be an Ice Cream Sandwich phone for less than a C note which is not a bad deal at all.

Thanks Anonymous Tipster!

Who wouldve thunk it? The Droid Bionic moving closer to the back of the bus.

Yep. Motorola has a way of saturating the market. The Razr will be shadowed next by the Razr Maxx. Then the Droid 4. Way to go Motorola!

The Droid 4 will not be above the RAZR and the neither will the RAZR MAXX, assuming that even comes out. Its just a bigger battery version for people who dont care about it being thin, but want more juice. They are equal if anything. And the D4 is an upgrade to the current Droid 3, its not as high-end as the RAZR, albeit close. The RAZR is still gonna be awesome for quite sometime. Honestly, with most if not all the bugs for most people, the Bionic is still an impressive phone. I just picked one up for my girlfriend today at Costco (149 upgrade price w/ all the car and home dock, car charger, extra battery, and i think an HDMI cable.) and I upgraded to the newest software update and its a great phone. Amazing actually for how cheap it is now. I like it more than I thought I would. I would trade my RAZR for it, but still, it was half the price too...

At my local Costco, they put the Bionic special package (ie listing all the accessories) RIGHT NEXT TO the Razr special package. This was really dumb if they wanted to move Bionics.

I picked up both cardboard displays listing the spec's and it was clear, you would go with the Razr for extra $$$. Even I would go with the Razr with the better display.

> but the bionic comes with more accessories

At the Costco where I shop, both the Bionic and Razr had three accessories. Maybe your Costco store offerred more acessory for the Bionic, but that wasn't the case at mine.

By the way, the $100 difference divided by the 24 month contract term yields $4.17 per month difference. I'll pay the extra $4.17 each month looking in exchange for a better display and better processor.
