DROID Bionic Teaser Gets Bumped to Verizon’s Front Page, So Close You Can Taste the Metal

The ruling of the machines is about to begin, according to Verizon’s front page which now features the teaser you are seeing above..  The DROID Bionic is expected to hit stores on September 8th at the on-contract price of $299 or off for $589 and finally bring an end to the waiting.  It’s funny actually, that was the very same slogan they used back in January when they first introduced the device, “The End of Waiting.”  Here we are almost 9 months later…

And we are just guessing here based on past info, but if you look back at Verizon’s track record for phone releases over the last couple of months, it wouldn’t surprise us to see a pre-order period starting around September 1 (week before the 8th).  If that does indeed happen, we are only two weeks out from a flood of orders going down.  That thought has to get you a little excited, right?  Maybe?

Cheers zepfloyd, Adam and Tom!

    Stop whining already!! Most of you complaining and saying you won’t get the bionic well probably be the first in line to get it actually. The pricetag is going to be what all 4g phones well be!! As far as other phones none knows for sure when they’re coming out. Think for a minute people any phone that to is supposed to be better well probably have crappy. Battery life. Any htc phone has the worst battery life ever!! Im looking forward to the Bionic and the great battery life!!

  • I would like to show my appreciation to this writer just for rescuing me from such a incident. Right after exploring through the the web and meeting ideas which are not beneficial, I was thinking my life was done. Living minus the answers to the difficulties you have resolved by means of the website is a crucial case, as well as ones that would have adversely damaged my career if I hadn’t come across the blog. Your main mastery and kindness in playing with all areas was precious. I’m not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t discovered such a subject like this. I can at this point look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time very much for your specialized and effective help. I won’t hesitate to propose your web blog to anybody who should receive counselling on this subject matter.

  • I simply wished to thank you very much once more. I am not sure the things that I could possibly have sorted out without the thoughts shown by you about this problem. It absolutely was a very alarming matter in my opinion, however , seeing this expert mode you treated that took me to jump over contentment. I am happier for your information and thus trust you realize what a powerful job that you are undertaking teaching the rest through the use of your webblog. Most probably you have never encountered any of us.

    I’m still gettin this phone no matter what, I can’t stand my BB Storm 2, YES! a Storm 2 -_- so pre-order is on the way.

  • I in addition to my guys were actually checking out the excellent tips from your website and then developed an awful feeling I had not expressed respect to the web blog owner for them. Most of the ladies are already for this reason very interested to learn them and have seriously been loving them. Many thanks for truly being indeed thoughtful and then for deciding upon this kind of really good information millions of individuals are really eager to know about. My honest regret for not expressing appreciation to earlier.

  • Angelbowler

    That has since been removed from the front page. After reading the story earlier I went to look and it was no longer there.

  • SteveTango

    This phone couldn’t come any sooner. My OG decided to jump into a sink full of water the other day, destroying the phone, SD card, everything. I got a replacement, but now I’m back to square one. I guess three weeks isn’t such a long wait, I’ve been waiting over 6 months already.

    • Granted

      How in the hell do all you people destroy your phones like this? I still have my Samsung Pebble, sitting sound in good condition. Actually, I have two of those old as shit flip open phones, but I can’t remember the name of them, but I know I used one back in 1997, when I was in high school.

    You guys should all wait for the nexus prime in october my droid 2 is about to die. Its power button can barely be pressed and the keyboard is way more stiff than before

  • Mack

    Lost my Droid X, asurion sucks with replacement Droid X’s (defective) and i need a new phone…but $589.99 is rediculous even for an off contract price. Heres to hoping I get a raise or asurion runs out of the Droid X and starts handing out Droid X 2’s again.

  • WhodAThought?

    Where exactly is this “teaser” page? I went to the Verizon site and it isn’t there … I searched the site for Droid Bionic and all I got was the same page where you can sign up for an email alert which, according to multiple users on the internet, Verizon doesn’t use even if you sign up.

    So exactly where did you get this page?

  • aebrahim619

    I searched Droid Bionic in the vzw website and look where it took me to.

  • Jason Purp

    Rule all machines. Until October. Then the Nexus will take over.

  • Hiphopapotamus

    Bionic = pass

  • mike leistiko

    I’ve had my og Droid since day one and watched 100 better phones come out since, yet I’ve stayed satisfied the entire time. I’ve already been proven that I don’t need the latest and greatest. Fact is, whether you get the Bionic SGSII, Vigor, etc there will be a better phone out just a few months later. then a better phone after that. so stop hating on the Bionic and deal with it.

    I strongly dislike the fact that $299 seems to be the new price they are forcing upon us for the “latest and greatest”. The $199 price point is a lot more palatable, even though it’s still not “cheap”. First Verizon upped the early termination fee, then they killed the yearly upgrade program, they killed the NE2 credit, then they started capping data…

    Someday I hope I don’t have to care about $100, but for now it sure hurts.

  • Anonymous

    I wanted the Bionic from CES, not the Droid X 3. :/

  • Nonyabizz

    Yeah, $299, sure.  So this will ending up being a little bit larger Atrix with LTE yeah?  That’s what I see.  Just about the same specs as Atrix which released a YEAR ago….nice.  SG2 LTE come on out and rule.

    Still hating the 300$ price tag

  • anthonyg80

    “we are only two weeks out from a flood of orders” yeah right Kellex

  • Socialmuse

    I have been stuck with a Blackberry Tour, my wife has had a DX1 for a year now. I don’t care if this is going to rule all machines or not, in fact my buddies Evo3D has better everything than this Bionic. I am still getting this phone because it is way better than my BB and just out of curiousity does anyone truly need more power than the Bionic? Other than bragging rights or whatever, hell even the DX1 has enough power to run everything that is available on any phone. I have been holding out for 4G and Dual Core and I dont even know why. After I receive this phone i will no longer have a need for any of these posts/websites/comments.

    • Granted

      No, nobody needs all that shit on a phone. They just like to see their friends get a big geek hard on, when they tell them about all the “specs”, their new girlfriend has. Then they proceed to unlock said friend’s buttloader, while saying “I’m just gayin’, you filthy little newbie, I’m gonna pwn your pentile!”.

    That droid eye is gonna look sick as a boot anim…

    Kellex is making me hate this phone even more.

  • JoJoOnTheRadio

    It’s there………then it’s gone…..

  • guest

    not on vzw’s website homepage anymore

  • Tonydspencer

    I’ll pre-order, if it’s possible, using my wifes upgrade. Mine’s due in October, I’ll use that for what follows if the Bionic ain’t what it’s cracked up to be.

  • PowersUSA

    I will reserve judgement until I go “eyes” on with an actual phone. The phone is similar enough to my current X that I have no worries about what the phone will feel like in hand. I’m just hoping by magic the the screen on the Bionic is nicer than the X2 and the Photon. I want a screen like that on the HTC Sensation. Not holding my breath.

  • Templeboy87

    I got tired of waiting. I’m buying the Droid 3 off contract for a few months, then waiting until Dec/Jan to see what else is out. 720p display is right around the corner.

  • Anonymous

    Hell yeah!

    But damn, still have less than a year to go before I can even upgrade. Blasted!

  • Alex Barry92

    It’s already gone? wtf…

  • Anonymous

    I’ve waited this long. I am waiting even more. SGS2, iPhone 5? Lets see what happens in the next month or so.

  • murphy

    All I can taste are sour grapes.

  • Me

    I want this phone like I wanted my first piece of……….. Well never mind. But I do have to wait and see if nexus comes to verizon if not I’ll pick this bad boy up in October for a great price. My miui Droid 2 has years left in it.
