DROID3 and Old DROID Bionic Appear in Verizon Cellebrite System

We see devices come and go all the time in Cellebrite systems (those phone data transfer thingies), but when two new DROIDs pop up in it, it’s worth a quick mention even if one of the devices was cancelled months ago.  That’s right, you are seeing the words “Droid Bionic” above, but the key here is the model number of XT865 which is the old version that will likely never see the light of day.  The new version of the phone leaked out in a series of pictures yesterday as model XT875, so we know this Cellebrite system simply has ancient info in it.  Sorry if this got your hopes up, but we’re still looking more towards August for the actual release.

On the flip side of things though, we are seeing the DROID3 which is rumored to be arriving in stores some time around the end of June or first week in July.  While it may be tough to take this appearance as meaning an impending release is upon us, it is nice to see it floating around additional Verizon systems.

Cheers ___!

    Verizon still using the same contact transferring device as they did when I worked there…over 3 years ago, once a phone hits that thing it’s at least two months before the actual device is released or at least talked about within the company, until then its deny, deny, deny…Just like Congressman Weiners and that turned out great…wait…

    I want the D3, but I don’t want blur.  Either we get a D3 that doesn’t have fluff on it or I hold out the extra 4 months and find a HTC or Samsung with a slideout keyboard.  There is a whole slew of us OG Droid buyers that are almost ready for a new phone and the D3 would be perfect if it didn’t have the needless blur junk.  Then again, it will probably take CY like 2 weeks to get us a proper ROM at most.

    I together with my buddies were actually reviewing the nice items located on the website and so unexpectedly came up with a horrible feeling I had not thanked the web site owner for those techniques. The guys appeared to be as a result very interested to learn all of them and have in effect definitely been having fun with them. Appreciation for actually being very helpful and then for pick out such incredible subjects most people are really desirous to learn about. Our own honest regret for not expressing gratitude to sooner.

    I just want the damn thing released before the Unlimited Data Plan is gone from Verizon (D3).

    Can’t wait to see the actual reviews for the Droid 3. It seems Moto really put an effort into this as a real successor to the OG Droid(as opposed to the D2). Also looks way better than the Droid X2.

    The real hit from reality will come when August hits and the Bionic is finally released, but only in limited quantities leaving 96% of the unfortunates waiting until October.

    I can say this – LTE radios are battery killers, large vibrant screen are battery killers, and dual-core processors are battery killers. It would seem that Moto will have their hands full just trying to keep juice in the cells!

    If I have to wait for that, then so be it. I certainly don’t want to have to charge my phone every 3-5 hours.

    Is August a credible date? This is the first I’ve seen an indication of the release date from anywhere.

    I’d consider a D3 once root is confirmed on it, but not before then. The bootloader stand by Moto has me peeved, still. What I really want is another company, preferably HTC, to come out with a slide out keyboard phone with the same specs as the D3.

      If HTC came out with a phone that was the Droid 3 + unlocked bootloader + LTE, I would throw so much cash at them they wouldn’t have an idea what to do with it.

  • Alrightnow

    I still have my OG droid and am thinking about upgrading to either evo 3d or SGS2. Hard to decide on the 2 as evo has the nicer Sense 3.0 and the 3d capabilities but the SGS2 is much more smoother. MOTO and Verizon don’t have much to entice me to stay as selection of phones aren’t as appealing and now verizon is capping their usage so gotta say goodbye.

  • SpectrumGoggles

    I think it’s kind of funny that so many of us are still pushing along with our OG Droids and everyone seems to be waiting for the Bionic. the days could not go any slower.

  • Anonymous

    Moto and verizon are really killing themselves. By the time the Bionic is released if they do indeed release it in August the Gs2 and im sure another HTC will be just around the corner. Not to mention the sensation and evo 3d will be out by then which they could have stole some sales from those two if they released this before those. Oh well lets just hope for some more info and maybe a release date on these two phones.

    Mb they didn’t update yet?

      wonder if they would release 2 versions of the bionic? Because didnt they rename the revised version the targa?

  • Anonymous

    So what does this mean since it is the old bionic?

  • MicroNix

    August??  Geez, I thought July was going to be a long wait but August?  Are they just going to keep “refining” the Bionic and never release it or do they want to sell this freakin thing????

    • Inkster09

      They are still trying to fit round peg in square hole with their bloatware and bionics android system designed by Google. That’s the enhancements yea there are some good enhancement but the real reason is trying to get GB or froyo do work with their bloatware.

      • Inkster09

        They just can’t figure it out yet but when they do that poor bionic is gonna be buggyyyyy6yyyy damn wharlt a shame.

  • FortitudineVincimus

    I think the Bionic is the one for me. I thought so when first announced, but more so with the newer design size and OS listed.

    Having now owned the Droid for nearly 2 years, I will never go back to a phone with a physical keyboard.. so the D3 is out for me.

  • Anonymous

    Im waiting until HTC has a better new phone 3-4 months by now….done with motorola, always a glitch. I’ll use my DroidX until it lasts  

  • Anonymous

    Looking at the numbers… is the Droid 3 going to be closer to the Bionic than the Droid X2?

  • Steelertown7

    Can somebody tell me what this post means like im a baby.

    • Kylee Trotter

      Cellbrites are what we use at Verizon to transfer contacts and pictures from your old phone to a new one.  These models have been in the Cellbrites since at least March….nothing new here…

    Time to upgrade my OG. Anyone comment on how the migration of data/apps/settings occurs, or doesn’t occur, when you get a new Android phone?

    • Anonymous

      data such as contacts and messages can be saved to the sd card or gmail, apps usually repopulate by logging in to gmail(for some reason for me always doesnt download 3 apps, fandango, movies and IMDB)

      as far as game data without root you wont be able to keep that same with app data such as settings and alarm clocks, kinda have to start fresh on that

    I am waiting on both of these phones to make a decision in my next Droid series device. Gonna be a tough call for this guy.

        Tried the Thunderbolt. It was ok and but I still love the hardware from Moto. I have been a Moto user for about 15 years now. Nothing against HTC, great company and hardware, just not for me.

        • http://twitter.com/binglut9 Brian

          Agree f150 I tried the thunderbolt and it was not what I was expecting so i took it back I just like motor build, design, and now blur is starting to go in the right direction

        • Anonymous

          Agree HTC and their poor battery life on all phones really kills it. I dont care how hackable it is if the battery sucks then all the roms cant save it.

          • http://twitter.com/ChrisJBatson Chris Batson

            Battery isn’t that bad. Get the same that I did on OG Droid and slightly less than i did on DX. 

          • Anonymous

            Isn’t that bad are you serious? Just check out any reviews of HTC phones and they will all complain about battery.

          • http://twitter.com/starnovsky Stan Tarnovsky

            People will always complain. I’m too getting about the same battery life from TBolt as I had with OG (with fresh battery) – like 8-12 hours. With JuiceDefender it’s a lot more, but I have some issues with it.

          • Anonymous

            Yep agreed…in 4G area I get 8-12 hrs and in 3G Ill get up to 16 hrs…stock TB. If I’m traveling or if it gets low with heavy use, just pop in the spare battery, simple.

            When I use my gf’s D2 it just doesn’t have the nice looks I am used to with sense on the TB. She shot a video…I transferred it to my TB via Bluetooth and it just looks so much better on TB. And it isn’t just because of the bigger screen size. From the Widgets and I guess the blur it just doesn’t do it for me. Its still a great phone and the D3 looks even better, but I’m officially an hTc guy now.

          • http://twitter.com/BHagey1 Brandon Hagey

            Rooted TB, 4g area up to 24 hours easily. 3g Much much more, record i had was 1 Day 23 hours with 3g, before i plugged it in.

          • Anonymous

            Sweet! I can’t wait to root mine….

          • Anonymous

            The Thunderbolt that I had got significantly less battery life than my DX. I also had a much stronger 3G signal and overall voice signal on my DX. Those were just a couple of the reasons why I went back to my DX.

          • Anonymous

            The battery life on my DX was much better than the Thunderbolt I had. The reception on my DX is actually better than what I was experiencing with the Thunderbolt. Just my experience but those are some of the reasons why I came back to the DX.

    Days can’t go fast enough for this… my Droid OG is slowly chugging along still, just need to hold out a few more days!

      My OG’s touch display is 50% gone (like many others) so August is going to be an eternity.  Funny that these are all starting to die and all of the OG users and looking for the next big phone.  Will Moto ever release the Bionic, or will it be the SGII or HTC that beats them to it on VZW and sucks down all their sales? 

    • Anonymous

      In the last month, it seems the battery on my OG won’t last more than four hours…I’m counting the days until the D3 releases.  August is just too far for the Bionic.

      • Anonymous

        battery for the OG Droid (D2/D2G) are like 5 bucks on amazon. they’re International OEMs tho. YES, they’re OEMs, but the Battery model print on it is larger than the USA OEM. This leads ppl to think it’s a fake imitation.. but when compared to the D2G (since it’s a global phone) that came w my brother’s phone, it’s exactly the same

        • Commoncents82

          I bought one of those from amazon and it works great. I wasn’t about to pay full price for a new one when I knew I’d be getting another phone soon.

          5 bucks! you got ripped off. i think mine was like 3 =P

    • Anonymous

      Yeah, mine has been unfathomably slow for months. The only reason I didn’t dump it long ago is because I’d rather see if the Bionic is all we’ve been hoping it’ll be than to jump on a Thunderbolt now when the Bionic is so close. My D1 gives me so many errors and force closes and can take several minutes to do something as simple as opening and sending a text message. I hope this comes out soon; I’m barely holding on here. :-(

        I’m on my 2nd Droid and this one is acting so strangely.  I think it’s hardware based but the screen becomes unresponsive and/ or hangs.  I wanted to unroot it and get something new from Asurion but I’ve been hoping the Bionic would just come out soon and I could avoid the extra deductible expense.  My last phone was rooted and Asurion sent me a replacement no questions asked however the screen wouldn’t work so obviously it was hardware.

        On a side note….I stopped into AT&T and looked at all the pretty phones and cried.  Why can’t Verizon get great phones?? 

        • Huanpup

          The only Android device that AT&T offers that looks any good to me is the new Samsung Infuse 4G.

    • Spikepark

      I agree! Everyone that bought the OG Droid on the first day, will be coming up for their 20 month (new every two) renewal on July 7- less then a month to go!  Let’s hope the Droid 3 comes out right around that time.  
      I’m not waiting for the Bionic- who wants to carry around a 4.5 inch phone in their pocket?  The new design also looks too much like the Droid X- a played out style.  I can’t figure out why they changed from the original style shown at CES- that was hot!

      Just forget about the bionic till its actually on the shelves of vzdont
