Is this the DROID Bionic Boot Animation?

The big news of the last month has clearly been the delay of the DROID Bionic, but that hasn’t stopped continued speculation and leaks from popping up.  Today, we’re seeing what is rumored to be the Red Eye boot animation for the device.  There isn’t necessarily a way to tell if this indeed for the Bionic, but since it’s new, we can sort of assume so.  Although, we still wouldn’t put it past Motorola to issue new anims for the DROIDX2 and DROID3, so this could easily be for one of those devices which are expected to be out before the Bionic.  

And since I know that a couple of you will ask, I’ll just toss out a few of the rumors I’ve heard regarding the release date for the device:  July 14, July 21 or September. Yeah, talk about a time frame.  I would recommend not holding onto any of those dates though, as it’s way too early to be speculating on an exact day.  In fact, just ignore that I even mentioned them.  If Moto or Verizon are targeting a day, it’s likely to change at least another 10 times.  Just expect it to be in the summer like we’ve been told.

  • Looking a gud boot.

  • nope…

  • The more I look at it, the more cartoony it looks with the choppy animation when the little bionic arms extend.

    This should be droid-life’s video intro! Although the pink floating bubble is cool, a droid eye would be even cooler!

    OMFG, if this was for the Droid Bionic I so want it…

      You want the phone because of a boot animation?

      • Anonymous

        Yup, bc the boot animation is just as important as all those wifiz & geebeez all the cool kids are using 😉 (the sad thing is that the dude u replied to could b serious!!!!)

  • Personally waiting for the Xperia Play. But if the Droid Bionic makes the Six Million Dollar Man “doodoodoodoodoodoo” or “nuhnuhnuhnuhnuhnuh” bionic sound effect when booting I might be on board for this instead.


    I am leaning toward the DX2. It has the same subtle X shape in the background. On the X it is just gray but this one looks like it forms an X out of the tubes that come up.

      No 4G and no FFC = el busto. Stupid that they don’t include these now basic features.

      I agree. The X2 is supposedly coming out next week afterall.

    No matter what this phone will be delayed. VZW is having major LTE issues. First, the outage and then every device that is LTE has been delayed or their updates have been delayed. Better off sticking with your 3G phone. This has to be why they are not changing the data plan price for 4G.

      If you have to hang on to a phone for 2 years why not make it as future proof as possible? I’m sure that they will eventually get the bugs solved

    I’ve heard a rumor that Tegra 2 is out in favor of OMAP4 dual core…take it for what it’s worth.

    • Anonymous

      Yes, most likely.

    • Anonymous

      Yeah I heard that too, something about the Tegra 2’s not playing nice with 1st gen Lte hardware

  • Bunie

    This looks like the Droid Charge to me. The Droid Charge commercial has two balls flying at each other (>_>;)
    And this has them on the left and right sides.

  • im gonna call that this is the droid x2 animation because they just look to similar

    • ReebX1

      Have to agree, looks like a big X with trio things on the side, imo.

  • Stephen D

    Eh, pretty cool, but the Charge’s eye is still my favorite, followed by the X’s.

  • Travisjshepherd

    who’s up to making this a flashable boot animation for all devices!!??

  • No, this is the Samsung Charge boot animation… One of the salesman let me play with Charge this morning at a Verizon store and I saw it boot up…

    • Juan_ortega92

      this isnt the charges animation

    • Anonymous

      No its not the charge has a different animation.

    • The Charges boot animation is cooler.

      Different broham

  • Awe.

    Really cool…makes me want a Bionic even more now…that’s if they didn’t freakin’ cancel it and replace it with the Targa. AHH!

  • SenorDeuce

    Looks very Bionic to me. I really can’t imagine ever changing my boot animation if that’s stock.

  • But anyway I think you’re bionic. And I don’t think you’re beautiful I think you’re beyond it. 🙂

        • true…its not like he has 24 million bookface fans or anything

    .Too much AWESOMENESS


    Dumb question but: Can you buy a 4g phone (Bionic) but only purchase a 3G data plan?

    • Anonymous

      There are no differences between plans right now. It’s just a 3G/4G data plan for $29.99.

      • right that was what pushed me to buy the charge because i spoke with verizion to make sure i could lock in unlimited 4g data before they go to a tiered plan

    That is hot, if only that “Pocketnow” watermark couldbe removed, I would consider booting my Droid Inc. to that.

    • Anonymous

      Would be nice of them to release it so that we could flash. Completely agree.

    • Anonymous

      That’s true mate 🙂

      This would be a great move from the original and legendary Red eye Droid animation ^^

    I just hope this is worth waiting for…

    • I do too, that Samsung Galaxy S2 is tempting, though. I hope this comes out relatively soon!
