What's a Motorola DROID BIONIC sans microSD card? $99 on contract
Remember all of the hype relating to the Motorola DROID BIONIC that peaked during last summer? The model was originally displayed at CES 2011 and caught a buzz from Verizon customers thinking ahead about which handset would replace their current model. But that variant of the phone was pulled by the manufacturer and replaced with a newly configured model. Launched at the high-end price of $299.99 with a signed 2-year contract, the DROID BIONIC's reign as Verizon's flagship model was brief as the "impossibly thin" Motorola DROID RAZR soon took the crown.

With the recent launch of the Motorola DROID 4, the Motorola DROID BIONIC now seems like an afterthought despite having some high-end specs that still sound good today. And you know what sounds even better? The new $99.99 price for the phone at Verizon with a signed 2-year pact. In order to bring the price down, Big Red pulled out the 16GB microSD card that originally came for free with the phone. That still leaves 16GB of native storage, which of course actually offers less than that amount for your use. And if you need more storage, you can take the money you have saved and buy a 16GB microSD card.

The bottom line is that paying just $99.99 for a dual-core phone with LTE connectivity seems like a good deal for Verizon customers, erspecially for a model that at one time was the talk of the town.
