Early version of Motorola DROID Bionic's "Droid Does" page shows $299.99 contract price

Early version of Motorola DROID Bionic's
How eager is everyone to hear news about the Motorola DROID Bionic? Eager enough to make a big deal when it showed up this morning on the list of Android devices that support the Netflix app, as we reported. Even better, a tipster for Android Central presented what he calls an early version of the "Droid Does" screen for the Motorola DROID Bionic.

Most of the specs are what you might think they will be. A 4.3 inch pentile display with qHD resolution is onboard while a TI OMAP 4430 1GHz dual-core chip is under the hood, making the phone eligible for Netflix HD. There is 1GHz of DDR2 RAM with a rear 8MP camera and a front facing 2MP shooter. The page also shows the Webtop dock that turns the handset into a laptop computer, similar to the accessory available for the Motorola ATRIX 4G

Based on the site, and folks, you might need to sit down here, the Motorola DROID Bionic will be priced at $299.99 and that is with a 2 year contract. While no launch date was spotted, we recently told you about an August 4th date, which fits in perfectly with the tipster's remark that this site will go live the first week of August.

UPDATE: We really hate to spoil the fun, but it seems like the leaked image of the Motorola DROID Bionic as it would appear on the Droid Does web page is a forgery. We know that it may not be that obvious at a glance, but a closer look reveals more than a few clues leading to that conclusion. The Droid BIONIC logo on the bottom right corner of the image, for example, looks misaligned and plain blurry, while the logos of the rest of the DROID family in the top left corner appear in a different order when compared to the ones on the web page as it looks currently. Even the image of the DROID Bionic looks as if its wallpaper has been altered by using a clone brush. Those of you who would like to exercise their forensic skills may try to point out the rest of the imperfections as there are a few more of them in there.

why ouch? its a newer advanced technology with pretty decent specs on the phone. expect it to be the same as a 3g single core non-front facing camera phone priced at 200 or 150?

Bandwagon?? That's the vernacular for people like you who goes trolling on boards. We should make up a hip new word for every time you do troll?

NO you freaking tool.....its the fact that you feel the need to go into every Verizon/Android thread and make smartass little comments. We all understand you are a pathetic little POS.....but do you feel the need to show it every single day? If you love your iPhone POS so much why dont you just participate over there with the rest of the unknowing sheeple that love old technology nad not bother with those of us that like Android? BTW.....when I see someone that has an Avatar of a half naked man you know what my instant impression of him is right?" BTW....this was in responce to MIZerable in case anyone questions

Lol, and this guy right here has a Droid. Go figure. Ah you see, that's the beauty of it - it's called freedom of speech. I have as much right as you do to comment on whatever article I want to comment on. Apparently Andrones have something to fear by iOS fans otherwise they wouldn't be so bent out of shape every time someone comments. And yes, go on ahead and make fun of my avatar. Because that's the best you could probably do anyway as far as insults go lol.

I am with the Miz on this one.. Android trolls are all over the Apple articles and i dont see why we cant post whatever or whenever we feel like it...

Post away. Just so you know, when those people who attack Apple just to do it post, they mostly get called trolls. So just be clear: You will get attacked. And yes: there are more Google supporters on Phone Arena postings. So you will get slammed harder. Now, bring something constructive, bring an actual complaint. or a legit concern besides "Droid blows, Apple rules" and you will be addressed with respect. Honest. I have seen it.

because it still makes YOU look like douches. i don't go on Apple articles and troll but here i am having to put up with this annoying nonsense on Android articles. an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.

and I have the freedom of speech to call you a tool......because quite frankly that is what you are. and believe me I dont think anyone of us fears the IOS......it is outdated on release day. not once have you seen me on their threads because I could care less about them.....you seem to only care about coming over here and annoying the Android people. Whats a matter you daddy not pay enough attention to you growing up so you are starved for it? I guess negative attention is still attention and it is all you can get. BTW.....nice to see you changed your Avatar once I brought it up......didnt you realize before that everyone that saw it just assumed you were a Friend Of Dorothy's?

Grow up will you?

true, but considering the droid charge is still $300 on contract, and has only a vga front facing camera, only a single core processor, half the ram, etc. This is a much better deal, even though I hate to use the word deal at this price. The charge's price is going to have to be cut or they wont sell any after the bionic comes out

he specified the Droid Charge and what you're getting with IT for $300 in comparison to the Droid Bionic.

Some on Android Central are saying it is a hoax/photoshop. Who knows.

LOL damn! Go play Angry Birds! Anyway, SGS2 comes out next month, has same/better specs all around and will probably cost the same, get it. Plus SGS2 screen is better.

i doubt it'll have LTE, that's where this phone will shine. plus i'm willing to bet Sprint will be the first to get the GSII.

bionic has qhd, sgs2 is still wvga. 540x960 vs 480x800. even the original droid X has a higher resolution 480x854

16. Thump3rDX17

Posts: 2160; Member since: May 10, 2010

that's true but qHD IMO isn't really that much better than WVGA.

35. thing is though unregistered

sgs2 is superamoled though which just plain looks waaaaaay nicer..

i agree. my point is qHD isn't really that big of a jump in quality but SA+ certainly is.

On this leaked pic, height and width are switched around (if you compare how droiddoes.com currently lists other phone's dimensions) That said, I wouldn't be surprised if the specs are spot-on.
