Additional Confirmation that the DROID Bionic will be Here September 8 (Updated: More Info)

Just in case you need additional confirmation that the DROID Bionic is headed to stores on September 8 without a direct fill (which likely means no pre-order), we have it for you.  Also, another look at official specs including talk time which is listed as up to 10.8 hours.

And don’t forget to check out the wallpapers from the device that were just posted.  

Update:  We have more goodies, like Gtalk with video over 3G, 4G and WiFi along with accessories…

How does a 2880mAh extended battery sound?

Cheers ___!

    The prime isnt a windows phone. The prime you are referring to isnt made by samsung.

  • Rob Meyer

    Dear Moto.. I hate you.

    Not crazy about samsungs plastic feel, but not crazy that it seems the bionic will be upstaged within a month. God all of this phone crap is full of fail.

  • Jon

    Did anyone else pick up that the depth was .40 inches? That’s only .03 inches thicker (although almost 1 oz heavier) than the Iphone 4. Wonder if that’s the correct depth or not.

      yes it is

    Ok so it says 16 gigs of internal memory, then it says 16 gigs pre-installed!? So does that mean you might walk out with 32 gigs the day you get the phone. I need reassurance lol.

    • Jim

       You have 16gb of internal memory, 14gb-15gb of which you can actually use. On top of that, you get a 16gb micro sd card pre-installed with the phone.

      • Anonymous

        well its now official.. its just like the droid x.. 8 gigs of internal and 16 preinstalled.. (14.90).. so 16 gigs x2 was too good to be true  :(

    • Anonymous

      Yeah I figured once formatted it wont but around 14 gigs.. I just can’t get over motor being so generous.

  • ReverendYo

    Question:  Is the 0.4″ depth listed the thickest point or the thinnest.  With the lovely “hump” on the back that could make a large difference…

    If moto can make the accessories cheap I might feel interested again. The dock would be a advantage over HTC vigor and nexus prime.

    That spec sheet lists 1GB LP DDR2 ram. . . which I’m very surprised to see.  I thought the Bionic was stuck at 512mb?  That was the biggest detractor for me. . . .  Has it been updated, or is the sheet wrong?

    My wife works and sells phones at a Verizon store.  She has been getting to watch some training videos since the beginning of this week preparing the staff to be knowledgeable about the phone’s new features.  There is not any news to report that people here don’t know already about the phone.  The news is that Verizon has started training staff on this particular phone so they can answer customer questions about its abilities.

  • Dominick DeVito

    Does anyone know what the ‘enhanced corporate security polices’ are all about? 

    Instead of getting all hyped up over devices I want to see some ehancements made to Android itself. What difference does a 1GHz dual core processor mean compared to a 1.5GHz processor that the Vigor (which I’ve read has an older chipset so it might be irrelevant anyway) with an HD screen? Who flippin cares?!

    I want to see Moto and GOOG get together and enhance the overall experience.

    • Anonymous

      exactly.  You just cant trust HTC.  A well build and PROVEN chipset (which the Bionic has) can easilly dominate a new unproven 1.5GHZ chipset.  

      This is why the Bionic was delayed so much.  The original chipset back in January was full of fail so they decided to switch to Texas Instruments proven technology which worked better with Verizon LTE.  

      Trust me you wont be dissapointed.  If motorola is known for one thing, its build quality. 

  • Synapticrecord

    no pre order yet…booo :(

  • Moto_AgentX50

    The Bionic is a true beast..i have been using it for a day or two now (in airplane mode) , and its amazing but..what would have made this thing a LEGENDARY DROID is ..

    1. No Bloatware! Keep the Moto 3D interface, get rid of all bloat, stick with stock apps.

    2. Unlocked Bootloader at Launch

    3.An even bigger battery lol. Ok that last one is a throw in but Android+ LTE = extreme power so we can use all the extra juice.

    Cheers! For those of you who have been patiently waiting, you won’t be disappointed, and for those of you complaning..well good luck the rest of us will be enjoying our Targa!

    • Alexander

      I think that 2880 mAh battery is going to be more than enough.

        You Bet..It will more than satisfy your needs

      The only problem I see with this phone is that there is no mention of an LED notification or charging light like I have on my OG Droid.  I really hope it is still there because it is one of the most useful advantages my phone has over my old iPhone.

          I’d have to disagree.  I don’t even follow Samsung phones, have no idea which of the 10 galaxys are good ones and which ones are bad ones.  The only Samsung product I’ll ever buy is a screen/TV.  Same with HTC, just not interested in what they are putting out.

          both 11 and 17 are Prime numbers in their own right as well.

          2011 is also a Prime number but 2012 is not so it has to come out before the end of the year.

        The Vigor and Prime will both be better. None of the phones including the Bionic are for sale yet, but the other 2 are expected in October. Its foolish to get the Bionic when much better phones are just around the corner.

          sorry you can keep you htc phone with the crappy battery life and the Prime isn’t even confirmed for Verizon but since we have been talking about the Prime for over a month now by the time it comes out it will be 5 months old and outdated using last years tech right?

            bionic will be better than vigor and prime. The only device that could it beat the bionic it would of been galaxys2 with exynos and lte

            until something is confirmed on the Prime I can’t say for sure that the Bionic will be better.  However, I can say that the Bionic is better than the Vigor and also that the Bionic meets all my needs.  As soon as this bad boy drops to $200 I’m grabbing it

        • Myfacetwitterbookspace

          Funny thing is, I’ve always been able to sell my old phones for close to what I paid for them. The prime probably won’t be out for another 4 months. Even if it comes out sooner, IF it’s better than the Bionic, I’ll sell my Bionic (which I’m buying with money I sold m X for)y Droid) and get the Prime. But I have my doubts the Prime is better.

        • Myfacetwitterbookspace

          I just looked up the Vigor & Prime specs. I take what I said back. There’s NO WAY the Prime is better than the Bionic. No Windows phone is! As for the Vigor, the specs are unofficial, but even the most current ones don’t measure up. By the time of it’s release, the specs will change 10 times. Even so, I’m dicking with Motorola. Don’t want to be caught with a device not owned by Googorola!
