Motorola DROID BIONIC stars in new video as launch gets closer
We know it is hard to believe, but the day after tomorrow will finally see the launch of the Motorola DROID BIONIC. What a ride it has been. First introduced at CES, the device was quickly pulled by Motorola before returning with a complete re-design. Now we have seen videos of the phone in action, leaked television commercials and a scavenger hunt contest. Motorola's new flagship Android model is here and by Thursday, we will know if the wait has been worth it.

A new video has appeared and like all of the other Motorola DROID BIONIC videos that have recently been made available, we see the UI in action. This video, which appears to have been taken in a Verizon strore, also compares the DROID BIONIC with the Motorola DROID X2. For those who can't understand the excitement over this handset, it is the carrier's first dual-core LTE enabled phone. And now, as the clock ticks toward zero, we have received word from a tipster who claims to be a Verizon employee. This anonymous source tells us that Big Red locations have received their inventory of the device and that his store signed in 15 units. Sounds like we could see a sell out rather quickly.

The long wait is almost over and the Motorola DROID BIONIC will soon be officially released. And then the clock will start all over again as Verizon customers start their vigil for the Samsung DROID Prime.

anyone still waiting for this phone? I was a few months ago, but with the prime, and vigor on the horizon, i don't mind waiting a little longer.

Is this phone better than the motorola photon or do you think the galaxy epic touch kills them both

Well...one clip I saw the Bionic killed the T Bolt in LTE speeds. Weird since they both used the same server on the test.

The Bionic also had a better reception reading than the T Bolt. (lower decibels, that means it has better reception)

Which phone kills which phone depends on what you want in a phone. And the cons you can live with.

it's a better version of the Photon pretty much and as for it being pitted against a Galaxy S II phone. they're both equally fine choices, it just depends on the trade offs you want to make.

It's a nice looking phone, although a little too thick compared to the crop that will come out later this year but I think the amount of hype it's been getting is going to disappoint people no matter how good it turns out to be.

I was very excited when this phone was first announced back in January, now not so much

MEH. It is just too simular to the droid X, droid X 2 and looks like the droid 3 from the front. Also... I thought it may be thinner... still has the weird camera hump. But the webtop/lapdock features are sick.

for me to have gotten this phone after annoying waiting period this would've needed to be nearly perfect including design!!! my brother works at a cell phone store and he brought a dummy today and the design is hideous as cupcake said looks way too much like droid 3 with ugly shiny lip on the bottom, and it's not even as attractive as droid x/x2, it might get good reviews and do well in tests but i am personally going to hold off until i see more devices come out
