DroidDoes.com Confirms Bionic $589.99 Full Retail Price Through Terms and Conditions


Our sources told us back on August 8 that the DROID Bionic would be $589.99 at full retail, a price that has now seemingly been confirmed by the DroidDoes.com augmented reality scavenger hunt terms and conditions page.  Thanks to a keen-eyed tipster over at Phandroid who dug through and found the device’s average retail value, we can now double cross price off the list.  So we are looking at $299 on 2-year contract and $589 at full retail.  Definitely not a cheap phone.

And can someone explain to me why the Galaxy S II, which is arguably the best phone on the planet, is 4G and only $199 at every other carrier?  You can’t tell me that an LTE chip is worth an extra 100 bones, can you?     

Oh, a new Facebook Bionic page has also appeared today.

    Lord help us.

  • what it all boils down to is: we all have our likes and dislikes, we all work and make our money and spend it according to the way we see fit, to purchase, spend, buy or bullshit it off! i can’t speak on anyone elses pockets or what you should or shouldn’t buy or do with “your” cash. for those of us who choose to buy the Droid Bionic, fine! and for those that choose not to buy it, still fine. it’s about having the ability to make choices that best suits you! i’m buying………………..

    If the phone is 589.99 without a two year…then should that price be cut in half. The phone should be worth at least 249.99 with 2-yr contract? Does anyone know if Verizon will offer a rebate, get 100 back or something. I know the Droid Charge is worth 299 but at least that phone came out when it was suppose to. This one took 9months with no explanations, keeping everyone in the dark. The least they can do is offer a rebate when you first buy the phone.

    This makes no sense at all.  Moto is telling me with their retail price that they were able to make this phone chapter then say the iPhone4 ($650).  Of course Moto picked the price of $589 so that they could make a reasonable profit off of the phone like any sane manufacturer.  Then the phone goes to Verizon and they tell me that it is worth $300 on contract when the iPhone4 is 200? Wtf? According to Moto’s ARP this phone is CHEAPER to make, but it costs more to get from VZW…  Why is my upgrade credit only worth 289 with the Bionic, but it is worth $450 if I get an iPhone?  This is the classic case of technology making gadgets cheaper, except all of that money is going into VZW’s pocket….

    That’s because Verizon add $100 on to all of their phones. If you puede a phone directly from Motorola, a $299 phone is $199. For example, the Droid 3 is $69 with a 2 year contract from Motorola. Go to their website & compare prices if you don’t believe me.

    to reply to the topic and i dont see where thee extra hundred is going either.  i figure its vrz changing the tier.  tbolt is the 1st lte phone so they figure they will charge a lil more(remeber lte cost the same as 3g for now) then the charge come out and the move the scale a lil further just see what ppl are willing to pay r that lte speed they get from this phone. im sure the charge didnt do all that well so they will keep the bionic at that same lil price push.  and if this blow up and lte close to fully rolled out the price for lte phones will jump again

    I could care less, there are plenty of other phones priced at $299. I’ve always known it would be that much.

    • Pennywise

      Right? Who expected it would be lower than $299 at release..?

  • Granted

    Oh my God, look at this comment section on mobile view. You low self esteem, never talked to or touched the opposite sex geek faggots, argued so much, it’s one big, long white, line of nothing.

    Man it must be so lonely after your favorite reality show goes off at night, and you’ve shot your load on your smart phone, and you lie awake at night, just pondering how much of e-thug you’re going to be tomorrow, telling some anonymous moron, that is surprisingly just like you in every way, how stupid and wrong they are.

    It’s easy to tell by posts that you are prepubescent, and I think how I actually went outside my house at that age, and talked to people without typing “lol”. Man, they could run a college study in this sad, sad comment section, studying the effects of isolation, resulting from replacing meaningful relationships in ones life, with a cell phone. The term papers would be amazing.

    • Pennywise

      Awesome post – lol ; )

    • Doesn’t say much for yourself trolling this site and putting your name on it…you justified your curiousity in how much the Bionic (the proverbial device we so called prepubecents are shooting our loads to) is going to cost by posting your rant, essentially placing yourself among everyone else who commented. Thank you for your thoughts and good day Sir.

  • I’ve been waiting since April for this phone.  The first REAL 4G dual core phone.  I’m tired of waiting, because if I wait for the next great thing, I’ll never have a new phone.  I don’t root, and I actually like the new blur, especially if it’s anything like the one that the D2 got in the Gingerbread update. 

    Haters are going to hate, Trolls are going to troll.  I’m going to be standing outside Verizon on September 8th to get my Bionic. 

    When the Nexus/Droid Prime or Vigor comes out, I’ll enjoy it with my friends who waited, but I’ll keep my Bionic.

  • Granted

    Looks like the girls started arguing over who’s pussy is the biggest. You all win.

    Is there any other phone out with 1gig of DDR2 ram? The sound of that
    seems stupid fast…I don’t care if theres 1.5ghz dual core processors
    on the horizon…OMAP 1ghz dual core with 1g DDR2 is PLENTY fast for a
    smart phone

  • LTE and Battery Life , give it to me now! I dont give a shit about playing games or watching some movie on a plan on these things.

  • A lot of thanks for your own work on this site. Betty really likes setting aside time for investigations and it’s really obvious why. Most people know all about the compelling way you make practical steps through this blog and as well as recommend response from some others on the situation then our favorite girl is without a doubt discovering a lot of things. Enjoy the remaining portion of the new year. Your doing a first class job.

    The biggest fail of this phone is that $300 price on a two year 🙁

    • Str8RippinEm

      Would you rather have a Droid Charge?

        No, it’s an overpriced under spec’d phone.

        But it’s phones like those that make this price so high.

    I am on the side waiting for October/November phones, but I think the Bionic will still be big hit, mainly because the mass majority of buyers do not scour news feeds and forums for any hint of information leading to the ‘next new thing’. They buy on impulse from TV, Radio and Web-ads, or even crazier than that based on necessity and happen to pick the best phone available THAT DAY!. (I know, people are weird, but I’ve seen them do it).

    I do believe the $300 price tab will hurt the bionic a little bit given long delay, and I fully expect they’ll quickly drop the price in month or less, certainly for Thanksgiving/Black Friday.

    The biggest thing to consider when regarding the pipe-line phones is I remember saying the same thing about the Thunderbolt 2 and Charge because the “Bionic” was coming. What release date do have for the Nexus Prime? the Vigor? the iPhone “5”? Who can not say they won’t be released until November…December…January?

     I for one thought FOR SURE the bionic would be out in August…I was certain.
