Motorola DROID Bionic makes appearance in ads at Mets game
Those New York Mets fans among our loyal readers should know that they are not imagining things. Perhaps you thought that you have seen so much of the Motorola DROID Bionic lately that the image of the phone is permanently seared into your eyes. The truth here is that with a Verizon store at Field Level in Citi Field, there are pictures of the Motorola DROID Bionic all over the ballpark.

What you are seeing in the picture below is a sign on a wall at the stadium that promotes the Verizon location at Citi Field, home to the Mets. And what phone is pictured? Why, it's none other than the Motorola DROID Bionic, even though the phone has not yet officially been introduced. And who is staring back at us from the DROID Bionic's 4.3 inch qHD screen? It's the Big Apple's favorite baseball headed character, Mr. Met.

We wonder how many of the nearly 25,000 in attendance at the game spotted the ads and noticed that it was the Motorola DROID Bionic that was pictured. It is just another sign that we are getting close to the launch of the long awaited device. When it comes to the DROID Bionic, it's time for Verizon to "Play Ball!"

Many better teams to associate a device with than the Mets, like a team who's won something in the last 2 decades.

Vzw could care less how well the Mets are doing on field. All they care about the partnership that offers the best bottom line

We're technofiles, we'd know it if we saw it. The average consumer just saw a Verizon phone with a big headed baseball. The problem with the Bionic (or any new phone for that matter) is the non-techie public just knows what they want (slideout qwerty, big screen, etc), but hardly any know the names of the units (even less know the forthcoming release dates).
