Updated DROID Bionic Teaser Clearly States September 8

Late last night, this video from one of our readers popped into our inbox, featuring that same DROID Bionic teaser that we received last week, only it had a slight change at the end.  Apparently airing during the George Lopez Show, instead of saying “SEPTEMBER” in the last second, this spot clearly states “09.08.11″ which we can all assume is the official launch.  After all, we have seen this date 3 or 4 times now, including two from us yesterday.

So you know, the DroidDoes.com entry codes have all been entered (finally) which gives you all of the info you could need to join in the latest DROID scavenger hunt.  It’s all stuff we gave you yesterday, so prepare yourselves as the contest starts in 60 hours.  And if you were wondering what that countdown was all about, we are pretty sure it was simply going to self-unlock in case one of the tech blogs decided not to participate (something that almost happened).  As you can see by going to the site, the countdown is now gone.

Why the delay on the announcement, Big Red?

    I’m really angry that I was wrong when he saw 0.5 seconds of George Lopez Show at the end. Rick is like a roller that really hurts people.

    I absolutely LOVE this marketing campaign. Normally I think they are cheesy, but this one is just awesome. Has sort of a movie plot feel to it.

    im not interested in the bionic but im confused as to how droid-life wasnt one of the sites that got picked to open up the hunt?  this site is all about the droid series and vrz!  smFh at vrz and mr moto

    Its still over priced, sprints gs2 has a faster processer, nicer screen and is still 200$

      Yeah thats one thing i dont understand is the price.  But i need a new phone so I have to pay it.

        The HTC Sensation (which is an awesome device) is like $169 at target..too bad tmobile has a horrible network.

    I disapprove of the abhorrent way this phone is being promoted and (not) announced. That said, I am still buying this shit out of this phone next week.

    WOW there goes all the Bionic haters again Listen no matter what you haters say, we are not going to change our mind, we are still going to get the Bionic! Oh yeah I almost forgot once we get the Bionic in our hands we will  ”Rule All Machine”

        • GeorgeClooney

          it’s a phone that is almost guaranteed to fail and will never be as good as the gs2, nexus, or iphone

            LOL iphone.  My wife has an iphone 4 and i would never use one.  I just hate the set up.  

            Dude I understand you love Samsung phones, so do i.  But as of right now I need a new phone and Samsung has nothing good on verizon.  If they did I might do a side by side comparison and buy the best one for me.

            I still say you cant judge the Bionic until you have it in your hand.  

            And iphone?  Seriously?  No thanks.  Android forever.

    Wouldnt it be smart to judge any phone AFTER it comes out?  Play with it yourself.  Decide if its good for you or not.  If you have a history of using a certain companies phones im sure you might be loyal as I am to motorola.  But you really cant judge a phone until you have it and use it.  

    Seems Logical……….

      r u blind all the video and pics shows a hideous phone and the history for this phone is plague with problems.y else the long delay- its because moto keep F up

        Again, its a phone, it goes in  my pocket.  I dont have sex with it.  Its not a car.  I use a bluetooth headseet, my phone stays in my pocket.  I dont stare at my phone and lust over it. 
        And in regards to motorola.  I appreciate a company that see’s a problem and fixes it instead of releasing it like HTC does.  

        • Anonymous

          You obviously know little about Motorola. Their recent GB releases on DX and DX2 have been plagued with problems – I have suffered with both handsets. Try to make a phone call – can’t. Phones lock up so you can’t use them for alarms. The qHD displays are so pixelated, red and green fonts are illegible. The list is long.

          We know the Bionic has the same poor screen tech and Moto’s GB. Their record with the DX and DX2 cannot be ignored.

          • Anonymous

            I cant speak to those phones becacuse i never used one.  I have a Droid 1 and have had only motorola phones before that.  Im just saying ive never had any problems.  

            Sorry to hear about the problems on those other phones.  

            All im saying is that with the Bionic, moto saw a problem and fixed it……….so kudos to them on the particular phone.  

          • GeorgeClooney

            yeah but they didn’t just make 1 mistake but 2 and had to delay that thing for half a year

          • Anonymous

            Ok, and??   They didnt release it.  Dude all im saying is give the damn phone a chance before you judge it.  No one is saying it wont have a minor bug here or there.  But really what phone does not?  Many phones require small over-the-air updates to fix minor bugs.  

            Give the thing a chance.  Ill return the damn thing if it sucks and get me a Samsung.  

          • Teevo0108

            Sure every phone has its problems I had a dx and now have a dx2 and love it. But the thunderbolt had a slew of problems before it received any updates and still haven’t received ginger bread yet.

           Well douche bag, the fact that DL has a story on updating the D2 has NOTHING to do with the large number of September 8 and accessory pack stories that hog up this blog. I said MORE root/hack/mod and less release date/FCC stories, I never said there were not any.  You have a low level of comprehension probably from living in your mum’s basement and that steady diet of Top Ramen noodles.

          Get your facts straight.  They remade it a total of 2 times.  It does not overheat anymore.  The battery life will be the best of any 4g phone.  

          I think it says good things about a company who saw problems and decided to fix them rather than release them as is.  Yanno…….Kinda like HTC does?

      This is what you should do, When you are ready to buy the Bionic make sure you buy it at best buy, because they offer 30 days to exchange phones so that should give you a month to wait and see what other phones come out..Hint Hint Hint HTC Vigor 10/6/11  Hint Hint Hint 

      • Anonymous

        Can Best Buy handle the early upgrades though?  My primary line seems to have been eligible for an early upgrade since around June even though my 20-month date is in October (I bought my Droid in February 2010).   I tried checking to see my eligibility at Amazon for one of those discounted Droid Charges a few months ago and they go by my October date and said I was no eligible for an upgrade.  If I go to vzw.com though it lets me get it at the discounted price.  I assume Best Buy probably uses the same eligibility rules as Amazon does. :-(

  • Mctypething

    I’ll be waiting this one out. So far, we’ve seen home screen re-draw issues, a software bug, and that the battery life is good if you’re phone is in idle. I need to see some reviews come in before I spend $300. Hopefully the droid life review comes in soon and contradicotry statements regarding battery life don’t follow soon after.

        I’d consider waiting if I had a confirmed release date. The Bionic accomplishes my 2 requirements, dual core and LTE. Seems like every time I make up my mind another great phone gets HYPER BEAST’D and the waiting starts again. Taking my chances with The Bionic.

        • EC8CH

          Yeah we’ve waited a long time for a phone with the specs of the Bionic to finally get to VZW. I was just joking, but a Nexus would be the first real successor to the OGD in terms of stock OS and openness.
