Motorola DROID BIONIC down to $120 at Amazon

Motorola DROID BIONIC down to $120 at Amazon
Thr Motorola DROID BIONIC has had its moment in the spotlight and unfortunately, it turned out to be a quick stay at the top for the handset. Originally priced at $299.99 with a 2-year contract, you can now pick up the dual-core, LTE enabled device for $120 with the signed pact. The reason for the discounting is obvious-a shiny new Motorola DROID RAZR is coming on November 11th and out specs the long awaited DROID BIONIC.

The Motorola DROID BIONIC first grabbed out attention last January at CES, but after the original design was scrapped by the manufacturer, a new version of the phone was launched in early September and was the carrier's first dual-core model with LTE 4G connectivity. There have been some complaints from users of the device, many of whom feel slighted by the fact that just a bit over 2 months after launching the handset, Verizon is just days away from releasing its sleek, thin Motorola DROID RAZR with a Super AMOLED display that does not use the heavily criticized PenTile technology used on the DROID BIONIC.

The Motorola DROID BIONIC is equipped with a 4.3 inch qHD screen with a dual-core 1GHz processor under the hood and 1GB of RAM is aboard. 16GB of native storage can be expanded to 48GB using a microSD card. An 8MP camera captures video at 1080p and a front facing shooter takes self-portraits and allows you to video chat. With Android 2.3.4 pre-installed, the Motorola DROID BIONIC might have enjoyed a long run as Verizon's flagship model if it weren't for the Motorola DROID RAZR coming up fast right behind it. But the good news for those who have been wanting the DROID BIONIC is that with its decline in status comes a decline in pricing. As we reported, Verizon has cut its price to $249.99 on contract and now, Amazon is offering the phone for less than half of that price.

Makes me wonder if I should wait another 2 months and then buy my Nexus/Rezound off Amazon.

Bionic was a late release phone. It was intended to be released in like May. Nexus won't go down much in 2 months. Maybe you'll save like 30 or 50 bucks.

I thought the Etna Bionic (seen at CES) was to be released in May and the Targa Bionic was to be released in fall (which it was). Maybe the Razr got fast-tracked when they realized the Targa wouldn't be competitive for very long.

Is $120 for a new account, if you're doing a upgrade it will be the same price as the store $249. I could give you this phone for $99 on a new line, but still charge $249 on a upgrade

English is also this. Sometimes understand is also important.

What? I know the many forms of English. Yours makes no sense. Putting random words together is also not important

You're all so cute, busting on non-native-speaker English. Welcome to the world, kids.

FYI, foreigners often have a better grasp of English grammar than native speakers. I'm foreign. He's just a fool.

That's not true...? And I was just saying, why would you be rude to someone who is just trying to comment, and could be a non-native speaker?

This is 130 so does that mean the iPhone 4s should be 100?

they make a phone every month they are of no value

33. iamcc

Posts: 1319; Member since: Oct 07, 2011

So because they don't wait a year to release phones with the intent of maximizing profits they are of no value? Ah, thanks

there are too many android phones coming out. He is right, they have very little value within 2 months. The only phone that has held its value well is the exynos SGS2

The one person that I know that has one hates it. He loved his Droid and Droid X, but not the Bionic. Apparently its very buggy (like every Moto Android phone)

The original Droid was pretty good. IPS screen, unlocked bootloader, still running pretty well...

Yes! The DX and DX2 were not bad until Moto released GB (6 months after Google released it). GB was a nightmare on very very many DX and DX2s until the next set of patches rolled out. Unfortunately, starting with the DX2 and now the Bionic - Moto used a poorly designed pentile screen that made small font red and greens illegible. So now you have the Bionic - much worse screen than the Razr, Nexus or Rezound, bulkier and buggier than most other phones, and VZW wants $300?! No wonder its not selling and Amazon is trying to get rid of stock.

LMFAO. I knew it. It will be a free phone in no time while the iPhone 4 is still selling off the shelf for $200 over a year later.

Yeah... What does that prove exactly? I know the point you are trying to make but other than pointing out that people are willing to pay more for a phone that does less, I don't understand. Good try though?

The point is people aren't willing to pay for android junk so they HAVE to discount it to "sell" it. No business in their right mind discounts if they don't have to.
