DROID Bionic Shirts Arrive in Stores, Promo Video Cruises Around Corporate

Still no official word on when exactly the DROID Bionic will launch, but the signs leading up to it sure have us believing that September 8 is the day.  T-shirts for the launch have started to arrive in stores along with a back alley promo video for employees eyes only.  Oh and look, the Droid Eye that we saw again in a video yesterday along with a quick tour of the Bionic’s Blur.  

Please just get here already.

Cheers Adam!

    The phone that will change our lives :) The one and only the droid Bionic, not it is time to rule all the machines my friend.

  • Konnected_az

    I just heard Verizon and Moto have pushed back the t-shirts release date to incorporating several
    enhancements to make this an even better consumer experience!

  • droidlvr

    I just p a i d $21.87 for an i P a d 2-64GB and my boyfriend loves his Panasonîc Lumîx GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS.I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $657 which only cost me $62.81 to buy.Here is the website we use to get it all from, http://BídsFírst.Com

    Who gives a rats ass about the shirt. Launch the damn phone!

    For what it’s worth, I’d be willing to pay a good chunk of cash to anyone who plans to pick one of these bad boys up and wouldn’t mind parting with the shirt because I don’t think I’ll be able to afford it on release day and I would murder for the shirt.  If anyone is interested, respond here and I’ll hit you up by email or something.

    You’ll be like a walking talking free advertisement wearing this around. 

    I say you’re getting ripped off.

    That t-shirt will be better than the phone; no blur, no bootloader, and run completely by YOU!

    Where can I buy that Bionic t-shirt? Looks rad!

    I remember I was in the movie theatre when I saw the promo for the droid x.  The next day I was @ the verizon store signing my contract =).  I want to see the fricken video…I clicked on the play button as well…=

  • Jason

    Why is that second picture even there?!? I think there just messing with us lol

    Is it bad I want the shirt more than the phone?

  • droidlvr

    ima wear that shirt and have the phone in hand

  • Jack Sanchez

    Could all this hype for the past year over this phone have actually been for this shirt?

  • Anonymous

    The more and more I hear about this phone and see more about it, the less and less I think I am willing to “see what else is coming out”.  Right now I have an OG droid on it’s last legs, 4-5 second redraw etc etc.  A dual core phone with a GB of RAM and 4G (with supposidly great battery life).  I’m In!

    Im not waiting for a Vigor with a 1.5 single core snapdragon with old architecture, Im all set with that.
    The Prime seems to be a good choice but I can’t wait another few months for its release. Not to mention if ICS is delayed who knows when we will see it, if it all on VZW.
    GS2: No definate release time or if it will be 4G, too many unknowns, unless we know more by Sept 8.

    As far as the whole PENTILE thing goes, this reminds me of when I was researching buying a Panasonic plasma tv and I was told to stay away from them because of “Floating Blacks” it was made out to be such a HUGE deal, but I bought one anyways and to this day I have no idea what these people were talking about.  Im reasonably sure I will be fine with a Pentile screen, rumor has it the NP will have one too so…..

    • ricbon

      go to a verizon store, put a droid3 on the live grass wallpaper and look @ the grass you don’t need to hold it close to you to see the pentile screen

      • Anonymous

        Do the same on a Samsung screen and see the differences. Main reason why my atrix is sitting in a box and using the nexus s as my daily phone. Don’t even miss the second core or notice a difference.

    • babadush

      hop on craigslist and buy a phone to hold you over until something worthy comes out. I had an OG Droid and got a thunderbolt for 200 bucks. changed ESNs at verizon and now the wait is bearable. Grab juice defender ultimate and you’ll get 2x the battery life. I get 10-12 hours with heavy use.

      • http://twitter.com/Rocko9999 Rocko Smith

        You can’t change ESN’s. You simply activated the Thunderbolt on your account. You got lucky it wasn’t stolen or had the ESN locked down.

        • babadush

          When i say change ESN’s I mean on my account. I thought that would be obvious. To activate a phone verizon has to change the esn from your old account to the new phone. That’s what I was talking about. Nobody physically changed the esn on the phone

    • Legoturte92

      I’m with you. My Droid is dying out more and more every day. The only phones I consider waiting to look into is the SGII or even the i*hone5. The Vigor interested me in the beginning but battery life is important.

  • Keeler

    Did anyone else click the play button only to realize it was a jpg? Damn you!! 

  • FortitudineVincimus

    More and more it seems like Droid-Life is a day behind. I read this story yesterday and I often read stories on other Android sites a day before they land here.

    We can the rest of us get the leak of this video?!?!?

    I’ll take a size 4G…err…XL

    “Like” this if you actually clicked the “play” button on that image from the promo video :)

    • OG Droid

      Here’s the video, if anyone wants to see it. It’s pretty crap quality but at least you get to see.

  • Mike Gall

    I would’ve like this phone to come out before Dragon*Con.  I guess I’ll settle with my OGD.  It has treated well this long and little longer won’t hurt.

      lol why don’t they call it Drag-Con tehehehe

        ha funny how angry people get when someone mentions another phone. Man you people need a life maybe get a gf that way you wouldn’t worry about what other people say about a phone=P

    No matter how irritated I am with Motorola I am still excited by “Droid” and the ever-changing “Droid Eye”!

    It still irritates me when someone tells me they have a “Droid”, and when I ask which one it turns out to be a Sprint phone or something. Then out of disgust I rip the phone out of their hands and smash it to the ground and stomp on it while I explain to them what Droid is.

    • Jason Purp

      Welp, that is not normal.

    • Chuckg73

      Funny story…I am selling my doid x2 on craigslist and someone contacted me and asked if I would trade for a Droid Galaxy.  I asked them what that phone was and who made it, and they responded Droid manufactured the phone.  Really?  Are there people out there that believe the Fascinate is a “Droid” branded phone.

        Wow!   LOL I am not surprised at all!  But that is funny…..

    I need this phone like yesterday. Or like 8 months ago. Either way, I’m buying it.

  • Trooper

    Can I haz the t-shirt?

  • Sk102704

    Look at the Pentile on that shirt! Its horrible! I’m waiting for the Prime T-shirt….

    • EC8CH

      Not to rain on your funny…

      But I believe the display on the Prime is rumored to Pentile as well… just HD Pentile :-)

    • FortitudineVincimus

      My chick was asking me to find her a Bionic thong… screw the t-shirt

    • PissOnPrime

      Than STFU and wait for the Prime

      Too bad the Super AMOLED HD screens are also Pentile.

      • Jason

        Don’t tell the trolls that! there heads might explode! lol

        • Anonymous

          There are different types of pentile screens. The type that motor uses is inferior to the type that others use. A simple Google search would reveal that :-)

          • Guest

            i agree the pentile on the htc display are superior

      • babadush

        it’s funny how people throw around pentile like it’s some disease. it’s motorola’s pixel configuration that makes it look like ass. Not that actual technology. Correct me if I’m wrong…doesn’t everyone use a pentile display?

    • Anonymous

      Wait is that BLUR on that shrit??? :P

      • Sk102704

        Ugh this shirt is so outdated before it has even been worn.  They’re still using the same dying technology from the 1700′s…

          LOL Just a late deployment, too bad for the Bionic Verizon and Moto know they missed the boat on this one. I haven’t seen any commercials for this device yet and not too much advertising either. Thats a sign that Moto and Veriaon will chalk this one up to “A Lesson Learned” Still this device has good specs but will look at the next round of devices coming out here shortly :P

            Stay with your cheap moto droid dont come to the bionic post little girl
