Best Buy Expecting DROID Bionic Cases to Arrive by August 20?

I know, I know, another DROID Bionic rumor to finish off a day.  With most of these turning out to be extremely questionable, we almost feel like it’s the HTC Thunderbolt fiasco all over again.  This time though, it’s Best Buy at the podium, showing off an 8/20 in-stock date for Bionic cases.  Now, this could mean we’ll see the device around that date, before or even after!  Wow, that was deep and to the point, wasn’t it?  Actually, we tend to see cases arriving in stores a week or two before the device they support, so let’s start focusing in again on the 9/1 date that we’ve heard a couple of times now.

Cheers ___!

    I as well as my buddies happened to be studying the great solutions found on the website then unexpectedly I got an awful feeling I had not thanked the web blog owner for them. These women happened to be totally warmed to read all of them and now have in actuality been taking advantage of these things. I appreciate you for being really considerate and also for using this form of decent information millions of individuals are really wanting to know about. Our own honest apologies for not saying thanks to you sooner.

    I simply needed to thank you so much yet again. I do not know what I could possibly have achieved without the actual hints contributed by you over such concern. It had become a intimidating issue in my opinion, nevertheless witnessing the very specialised form you resolved that forced me to leap over happiness. Extremely happier for the help and then pray you know what a powerful job that you are putting in teaching the rest via your webblog. I’m certain you have never come across any of us.

    I went to BB this Saturday and they had not even heard of the D3. Please do not use BB as an indicator (for anything).

    • Geoff

      i had the same experience. i went to BB last weekend and they had no idea what the D3 was or when it was coming out. it had been out a week (in stores).

    That’s one case from one company. And that’s Best Buy. I’ve heard that there isn’t even Droid 3 cases yet, so I wouldn’t count this as proof that the other ones were a fake. I’m still clinging to that August 4th date, since August 7th is when the FCC documents are released. And then what? We see the phone no matter what then.

    I feel like a kid who has been waiting for the best Lego set in the world. Even shook the box under the tree and heard the pieces rolling around in it….

    While I hope for the best, I can’t help but reserve my excitement before I confirm its not just another set of MegaBlocks.

    Any bets as to which will come first: Bohner giving in to the debt ceiling raise, or the Bionic release?

    ok now im sure that the mdb228 twitter account is fake. here’s moto’s official droid bionic twitter account… http://twitter.com/#!/DroidBionic

  • Pnicuh

    whatever it is ima wait and hope for Aug. 4th

  • droidlvr

    Why do we not have a firm release date on this phone yet?

    • Pnicuh

      i have no idea…

  • Ccav913

    i think another droid landing give away thing is whats gonna happen on the 4th. the actual phone wont be released until weeks later

    If Verizon does not release the Bionic by Aug 4th, I’m switching to Sprint and getting the Photon. Seriously this is getting so lame for some “super-phone” with specs found on two other current phone.

  • AroundTheFur

    Oh man, I took the insurance off the droid a few months ago and now the micro usb is dieing on me as of today. I’m really hoping that the Bionic is coming in a week, or else I’m going to have to get a Charge… sad day.

  • Spencer9663

    Okay why does Verizon think it is okay to announce phones DAYS before release. Isn’t business heavily reliant on marketing? Hate to say it Verizon but Droid’s are not Iphone’s, they do not sell by name! The only reason I see as to why Verizon/phone manufacturers do this is to not impede on the sales of phones that are released a few months later. I just do not see the point, and in my opinion whoever is in charge of the marketing department is really shooting the sales right in the foot.

    In conclusion, if you know when the phone is going to be released then why not announce it?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_MRXKXFO5F7NVWFJHNZFO7NEHVY Big R

       The reason is the Bionic is coming out maybe Aug 4.  The Samsung Galaxy S II may come out a couple days later.  They want people to buy on Day 1 and charge for restocking a crappy phone for a new one.  

      As much as I love my Droid, I will hold off until the end of August.  The only reason is to compare the Bionic, SGS2, and iPhone 5.  Yes, I said iPhone 5.  If Apple pulls off a trump on their release, I am not going to wait 6 months for something to be better than it.

        Wtf kind of magic do you think crApple is going to pull out of their hat to make the iPhone so good?  You’ve already seen iOS 5 and it’s still inferior with a bunch of copied features.  It will have a better camera, a faster processor and maybe more ram/memory and/or a larger screen.  Nothing groundbreaking buddy. don’t listen to the hype.

      The reason they don’t heavily market Droid phones is because they know they’re not going to sell in the millions and have people lined up to get them.  Launching a $100M marketing campaign for one phone that isn’t going to sell is a waste of money.  That’s why they make these pitiful announcements a couple days before its released and have like one commercial for the phone.  It’s all business.

      • Anonymous

        That 100 million marketing campaign is why the Droid became so popular and sold millions actually.

    Thanks Kellex, there are lots of us that want every piece of Bionic info you come across (good or bad). This is, after all, a DROID site, and that will be the top of the line Droid.

  • Frstsaxman

    this is all ridiculous. if they know when the phone is coming out they should just announce it already and set up the pre order system. I saw the original bionic at CES and I have patiently waiting ever since. I have wanted this phone the whole time but if this phone is released within days of the i*hone with IOS 5 I may have to seriously consider that phone. I got the Moto Xoom when it first came out with all of its short comings and have been waiting forever for the upgrades I was promised upon purchase. I am getting completely sick and tired of the way android products are being handled by the phone manufactures and Verizon.

  • Niemeyer2010

    Did that one guy ever send you a pic of that Bionic poster?

    • Frstsaxman

      one of my friends in class just told me he received a droid bionic add in the mail today though he didnt bring it to class. I dont know if he’s messing with me or not though

    I’m not sure what the big deal is.  Amazon has cases on sale already.
    http://www.amazon.com/Motorola-Bionic-XT875-Skin-Case/dp/B0058EEGTO/ref=sr_1_1?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&qid=1311731778&sr=1-1

    There’s even a review on a BIONIC case with a guy in UT that has had his BIONIC for a week and his case fits fine, 5 star review.

    I guess the moral of the story is when we see MOTOROLA branded cases delayed, then we can get upset.  We already saw a bunch of Motorola parts show up on Amazon.  Then they were ‘hidden’. 

    The one at best buy is made by Rocket Fish Mobile (note the part number, then compare it to part numbers on Amazon).

    • Droiiid

      pretttty sure that is the old bionic from ces. guess they won’t be selling many of those lol

      • Bigsike

        This link states that it is for the XT875 that is the new Bionic and the XT865 was the old one :)

        • Droiiid

          true but look at the photo…that is definitely the old bionic. how would that case that fits the old bionic in the picture fit the new one too?

        I know it, i want this phone but i just pray later in the week they will just post the official date with real clear pictures.. they are wasting precious time posting practically nothing.. a post with the official date + pictures and official price is all WE care about on this website at this point now. I hope they read this lol..

            Or it may just be that he wants to provide the rest of us with as much information as possible so we can check it out and decide for ourselves.
            If you prefer your news cookie-cutter style, where you’re told what to think and how to think it, check out the i*hone… they’re pretty good at giving people just the stuff they want them to see.

      so you rele shouldnt wrry about when they get the cases

    Actually I remember all 3 Verizon stores near me not having cases in stock for my DX for about 2 weeks after I bought mine. :)

    • Legoturte92

      Yea when the OG Droid came out by me they didn’t have the docks for it for a few weeks. Or they could of just been selling out.

      i agree with this waiting its getting a bit silly to be posted everday on this phone, but do remember Moto comes out with cool phones and it seems like every year around july-august time frame… what you will hear this December or Jan will be new moto phones announced for the NEXT summer.. and so on and so on.

    And that 8/4 screenshot from the indirect retailer has been buried.  If that thing turns out to be real, then I’ll allow everyone to shoot me with paintballs.  

    It’s just so pathetic that someone is out there spending ridiculous amounts of time and energy to try and trick blogs with fake images.  Especially when they cook up the story of the century and continue to lie in email exchanges, how can you know?  /end rant.

        Agreed.  When I picked up my OG Droid at BB on launch day, there were no cases for it.  No accessories either.  Just the phone.

      • Guest

        BB not only receives the accy’s after launch, the in-stock date is the date to display iirc.

        • Anonymous

          So what your saying is that they receive accurate information on the accessories and that the instock date is dependant on if they’re dispay is present….then mr guest you know something I don’t bc for the last 3 major realeases between sprint verizon and att have all either seen the acc after the phone release or the acc doesn’t come on dates specified. For instance no bb store had the DROID 3 on release date many stores still have yet to receive it and atleast 10 in my district don’t have the accessories for it…so if what your saying is true and what I’m saying is true what happens when mine says yours is a lie?
