“Official” DROID Bionic Twitter Says September 8th is the Day

Our Twitter timeline blew up last night around 10PM Pacific when the “official” DROID Bionic account woke up and starting spamming off messages about the device’s impending release.  We had heard September 8 on a few separate occasions without any confirmation from either Motorola or Verizon, other than that it would be here next month.  Well, it looks like they were leaving it up to their rumored-to-be “official” Twitter account to break that news for us on a random Saturday night…yeah, anyone see anything wrong with that?

We had been holding off from posting about this, hoping that someone at Moto or Big Red would find this announcement to be pre-mature and have it deleted, only that never happened.  So either both companies have decided to announce the most hyped Verizon device in history over Twitter on a Saturday night or it’s 100% fake.  We’re leaning towards the latter, still.  You will probably agree with us too, once you take a look at some of this account’s other tweets that have way too many grammatical errors for it to be considered legitimate.

Cheers all!

    why do ppl comes to the Droid Bionic post and talk about other phone, some of us don’t give a shit about those other phone, talk about “when is the Prime this”, “where’s the Prime that”… man get that shit outta here. Go find a Prime post and Prime yourself out, am just saying ppl really do like this phone and stop saying shit about it, watch ya’ll gonna be up on it when it comes out.

      If you want to listen to nothing but fanboys, go get an iphone. This is a forum, and if you don’t want to listen to other’s opinions, don’t read them.

  • Pnicuh

    So I guess there’s no pre-order yet…

    Anyone think developers will be able to unlock its bootloader? 

    • Sonicsayz

      seeing as how they haven’t been able to unlock other moto devices, i don’t think it’ll happen for a long time. i mean the D3 JUST got root and it’s been out for over a month.  

  • Donnydon

    Actually the most hyped phone for verizon was the iphone. But nice try.

  • droidlvr

    when will this be officially announced?

  • Anonymous

    Droid Bionic….The end of the beginning of waiting.

  • Random Guy

    I love how this phone was top-notch at its announcing but then lagged behind so that other developers could create phones that match/surpass its specs…

    • Anonymous

      Every phone that is ever created it will have phones that match/surpass its specs…so, yeah

      got an iPa d 2-32GB for $ 23.87 and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix 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://shr.tn/6Kd8

    “On September 8th, the Motorola Bionic will be in your hands”

    Wanted this phone when I first heard about it but ended up getting the HTC Rooted Thunderbolt which I think is better…Surf the web and talk on the phone at the same time on 3G and 4G (only phone on VZW that can) and many other things. This phone has been over-hyped and will probably never own this because of it. Why buy a phone that is going to be surpassed in a couple of months (yes I know 99% of phones are like that)? Just tired of all the games and prolonging VZW and MOTO are doing with this phone (over it). The Atrix on AT&T bombed and so will this!!!

    • Jjjjj

      So help me understand this….you think a rooted Thunderbolt is better than a phone which has no officially announced specs? In that case, I would take a Bionic with better battery life over the few times I would actually use low quality talk and web over 3g. The Thunderbolt was set to be passed in a couple of months, but did not stop your purchase. Was the Atix really a bomb, and what makes you think Moto has no learned from the Atrix? No to mention androind on Verizon sells better than on ATT….that is if we can really compare the two. This is a Droid branded phone….Verizon won’t let It feel….but keep telling yourself whatever is necessary to justify your previou purchase.

    • Jjjjj

      Ohhh….and what games? The one where a company takes a hit in order to make sure a better product is brought to the table? Yeah…pretty sure that was the plan all along.

  • faber

    Something tells me moto will make more then a tweet

     it had better be in my hands sept 8th !!!

    And…wait for it…it’s already obsolete…Samsung announces the GS2 LTE a super thin LTE phone using dual 1.5 inch cpu and a 4.5 inch screen…my next phone.  

    • MJZ

      we already know the GSII is not coming to VZW so dont “wait for it…”

          wheres kellex when you need him?

        • Anonymous

          Actually that also won’t work. That’s a GSM multimode chip that fits LTE with it’s natural sister in GSM/WCDMA all on one board so it can maintain the form factor. There’s not a CDMA/LTE AOI board yet that would be needed for Verizon…that would fit that factor. So a Verizon version would need a variant of the variant….which means you’re no closer to ever seeing it.

          Short form, that could be an AT&T LTE phone which going forward are much easier to build than CDMA/LTE Verizon needs.

      what’s a 1.5 inch cpu?

      • Pj

        a 486….

      they already said verizon wont be carrying that phone.  you fail.  The only phone that will surpasse bionic anytime soon might be the vigor or the Nexus Prime.  again………..you fail.

    • irl Panda

      You mean that 1.5HGz processor based on OLD architecture? xD Proves your hardware knowledge.

  • Vanilla Ice

    Fake. Waiting to hear from @DROIDLanding

  • Bmos

    If this is true and pre orders start on Thursday I’m willing to bet that droid-life will report something about the Prime or Vigor Wednesday that will throw all of us that were off the fence and going to buy the Bionic back on the fence. So to avoid this fiasco I asked my 4 year old which phone to get by showing him pics of both phones and he picked the “Bionic”. Guess he loves Moto and hates HTC and Sense

  • Garrett

    Thank god it’s official and its soon. This phone has been wasting more reporting hours than I can count. I’ll be happy it’s out so I won’t have to hear about it any more.

    • Justin

       ..and will probably be a dissappointment to us all

      Every phone that is about to be released will have a lot of posts SO deal with it because upon next is the vigor and these next coming weeks there will be a ton of posts about that

  • trumpet444

    I’m really getting itchy about getting a new phone. I’m still carrying the OG and I know that the Bionic has not lived up to what it was supposed to be. With the Prime possibly coming to VZW, an upgrade to the Bionic seems idiotic, but the Prime may not be here till December. I very well may pull the trigger on this and just ‘ebay it’ once something else comes along. I guess I’m trying to convince myself more than anyone else

    • Rdx2

      can you elaborate why u dont like it mr complainy pants?

      To say that a phone has not lived up to what it was supposed to be when it hasn’t even been released is idiotic.

    • Anonymous

      Or save your cash, run a killer ROM on your OG and then upgrade to Prime time.

        What’s the release date for the prime on Verizon?

        • EC8CH

          BGR keeps posting the release date is in October… but that’s just a rumor.

    I want to get this phone.  I have a Verizon authorized retailer right by my work, where I will be on the 8th.  If it is coming out that day does anyone know if I’m eligible for my new every 2 if I go to that retailer, or if authorized retailers usually get things first day?  I want the best deal but if I can get it while I’m at work on Thursday that would be great.

    • MJZ

      Go to Costco and get the Moto accessory bundle free. 
      Even if you dont have a Costco membership it’s worth the extra $50 to join.. you can always cancel the membership and get a refund I suppose. 

      • Bmos

        i don’t believe Costco honors NE2. Only new customers I think but I could be wrong

        • MJZ

          They do upgrades, I got my DX there on upgrade. 

  • MJZ

    I’m hoping for pre-orders on the 1st.. which happens to be THIS COMING THURSDAY!!!!

    Or we’re giving VZW and Moto too much credit in the sense that maybe they also have a mediocre knowledge of grammar.

  • Bmos

    I’m torn which to get Vigor or Bionic. Vigor has a faster processor but it is the old A8 and the bionics is the A9. Which I think will run just as fast as the Vigors without it being clocked higher. 

  • bobb

    Yeah I wouldn’t believe it unless it was verified
