DROID Bionic Makes Verizon Site Appearance, Sign Up to Be Notified of its Release

Well, look at that.  The DROID Bionic making its first ever appearance on Verizon’s website.  Obviously it’s not the actual device, but it is showing up which is a pretty damn good sign that we’re getting close to a release.  We’ve been told some really positive things about the final device and that the it’s is ready to go, so don’t be surprised if this thing becomes official any day now.

Sign up here.

You all finally ready?

Cheers Jarid and Ghery!

    Why bother signing up for early notification? I did- and I did not get that. Also- it was to be offered to be in our hands earlier by signing up on the Verizon site???? I am still waiting…

  • David Marzluf

    it is about time cause my og droid is nothing but a paper weight that still force closes the paper weight app all the time

  • Rodster

    I know we are not getting much info from Kellex.  However, have you guys seen these “spy photos” of the Bionic next the the Atrix, along with some specs?  What do you think?  Are these older photos from the original Bionic prior to the redesign?  Thoughts?

    I’m a Tbolt user. So far the phone is awesome! People who complain about it haven’t been around smart phones alot.
    I’ll also be buying the Droid bionic as soon as it hits the streets while keeping my thunderbolt as a backup.

  • Custom Colonel

    I feel bad for TB users who have to convince themselves that they made the right decision.

    My husband and i felt very more than happy Michael could round up his analysis from the ideas he grabbed using your blog. It’s not at all simplistic to just happen to be offering key points that others have been trying to sell. And we also do understand we now have the website owner to thank for that. All the explanations you have made, the simple blog navigation, the relationships your site assist to promote – it’s got all powerful, and it is assisting our son and us consider that that subject is fun, and that’s extraordinarily serious. Thank you for the whole lot!

    Well efin Finally.

  • Larizard

    Am I the only one here more excited about the marketing+ad campaign accompanying the Bionic’s launch more so than the actual phone itself? 

    • T Hall

      Yes.  Phone is priority number 1 :)

    Will this finally be the one? The phone to replace my DROID1?
    Motorola, please don’t screw this up!

    Absolutely ready. With the quality and performance of the DX2, the Bionic is sure to be a pleaser. My only concern is the battery life. I am somewhat worried that it will be as bad as the Thunderbolt. If that is not the case, this will be the device of the year for Verizon…much like the OG and DX.

  • BlackTTC6

    Waaaaaaaaaaaa waaaaaaaaaaaaa all the babies whining about the locked bootloader. WHO CARES if its locked.

    Can you still watch porn with it locked? Yes
    Text message? Yes
    Facebook? Yes

    • SupAll

      Can you uninstall bloatware?
      Can you install custom roms?
      Can you get rid of Motoblur?
      Can you overclock?
      Can you not be a douche? No.

        But being a douche is fun. :)

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=789014095 Ron Kurkowski

        Bloatware = Who cares
        Custom Roms = Who Cares
        Motoblur = Kinda like it
        Overclock = It’ll be available after it gets rooted in a day
        Being a douche is fun 

        • Tarsis Brito

          i love the motoblur with gingerbread the old blur i can just imagine the new motoblur :) overclock for what bloatware who cares about that.

      • Granted

        Can you talk to a girl without peeing your pants, and her running away laughing= NO.

        Can you rationalize what really matters in life, besides making love to your phone=NO.

        Can you not sound as if you replaced replaced intimate relationships with people, by talking about phones like it’s porn (man I’m going to ran my pentile in my boyfriends buttloader, if you don’t stop making fun of my phone)=NO.

      • Tarsis Brito

        a lot of people like free things i dont care if it is lock or not why we need to overclock when they are giving us dual core, why remove motoblur when the new version of blur its hot why put custom roms i used to do that it is all crap

    Knowing VZW, the site will notify us a week after it’s been released.

    • Anonymous

      Yeah…Just like how I still receive emails about my “new phone I purchased” and if I want to attend a training class by VZW to learn how to use it.

      *OG droid purchased on release day…seriously, wtf vzw!

  • Bewara2009

    Hello Kellex,
    Can you please make your self more clear on what you said: “We’ve been told some really positive things about the final device” What did you hear about this device? If you know something that we don’t know please fill us in…… after all we are all your fan that’s why we come to droidlife and see whats popping there 

    • Joshua Granville

      He always pulls that shit, then when new info comes he says he’s known.

      • Granted

        It makes a tiny life seem bigger.

  • Mack

    Anybody think it’s worth paying full pop for this if it really does live up to all the hype?? I currently have a Droid X that’s almost a year old. What if it really does have an unlocked bootloader??

    I needed to draft you this tiny word to help thank you very much once again considering the pretty pointers you’ve shared in this case. It has been certainly extremely open-handed with you to provide unhampered precisely what a number of people could possibly have marketed as an electronic book to earn some cash on their own, primarily considering that you might have tried it if you decided. These ideas as well acted to provide a easy way to realize that most people have a similar passion just like my own to see way more with respect to this problem. I am sure there are lots of more pleasant periods ahead for folks who look over your site.

    This gives me hope:)

    LMAO Lets see if this thing can even make it out of the starting gate :P

  • Bewara2009

    I have a feeling that Verizon already got the Bionic in the back room just waiting for the release date, to roll in.. I won’t even be surprise if this comes out in the next couple of weeks… ;)

    I’m really looking forward to this phone, but I don’t think it’ll be worth the early upgrade from my Droid 2. And the whole pentile screen thing and locked down bootloader thing just won’t do it for me. I think i’ll be waiting for something a little bit more appealing that’s available on Verizon. I believe HTC and Sammy, to some extent, are doing Android right at the moment.

    • http://twitter.com/binglut9 Brian

      You don’t know if it will have a pentile

      • PhoenixMike

        It will. Already confirmed.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_TTGA6YCIEAIQMJHPXHE5INWJ5A DanielB

    I do agree with many of you though.  If it’s a Pentile screen, Sammy is the one for me.  I have a Droid X2 and the Pentile screen is TERRIBLE!  I’m not sure that really communicates my true feelings.  Hmmm.  It is the worst screen I’ve seen on a mid to low end phone in some time and it’s not a low end phone.  The gradients are terrible.  The seperation of pixels screams at you. Rendering is horrible.  Yes, it is higher resolution, but the screen technology looks like an old Casio PDA I had 10 years ago.  Higher resolution on terrible technology is about like putting a misfiring Corvette in a a beat up Metro.  Yes.  It has more power, but it looks terrible doing it.

    I hope I can settle for this soon. I know it won’t be perfect and I really do HATE to give Motorola any more money, but my release date X is finally starting to show its age. Buttons are losing sensitivity and the battery cover refuses to stay attached :| I’m just ready for an upgrade and I’m not terribly keen on waiting for a Samsung device. Too bad VZW won’t get a Nexus phone…I’d trade my car for that.

  • Bewara2009

    Yes Finally Verizon is doing something good now, they are letting us know its coming soon! WTF that’s all we been hearing is coming soon, coming soon.. We all knew that is coming soon ever since moto said it on April 19,2011! 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_TTGA6YCIEAIQMJHPXHE5INWJ5A DanielB

    I’ve been on the phone with the VZ “Executive Offices” (whatever that means) due to some service and equipment issues.  Anyway, in conversation, the lady that I’ve talked to many times in the last week indicated that the phone that I told her I wanted to use my upgrade for(Bionic) would be out very soon.  I didn’t ask her.  She just happened to say that she understands why I didn’t want to waste an upgrade yet because the phone I wanted would be available “very soon”.  Thought it was worth mentioning.

    • Rp780

      very soon doesn’t mean much since they are on M.P.T (Motorola People Time)
