New DROID Bionic Commercial Airs – Ninja Chick Destroys Machines, Pieces Together Device

After we released the official DROID Bionic teaser to the world a week or so ago, many were wondering what it had to do with the actual device.  It featured a Natalie Portman-esque ninja chick who appeared to chop the head off of a robot in some sort of arena.  That was it though.  But now thanks to a quick tipster, we have the next commercial (a full 1:00 long spot) that is apparently airing as we type this.

This new spot features that same lovely lady, only it goes deep into her battle with machines.  Each time she kills one, she takes a piece of its core which just so happen to be an 8MP/1080p camera, HDMI port, dual-core processor and 4G LTE – all specs of the new Bionic.  Starting to make sense now?  After destroying each machine, she plugs the parts into another machine which gives us the first look (in a commercial anyway) at the device.  Good stuff.

Cheers Chris!

    The Droid Prime better have a true hd display and the Vigor better not cost over $300.  Otherwise I’m getting a droid bionic.  Just afraid the price is going to drop like a rock after a month or 2 of ownership.

    So…what can I DO with the phone? Talk about advertising that has nothing to do with the product. All flash and no substance.

      If you don’t know what DROID DOES…

      Get real, everyone knows what these phones are capable of so this commercial is showing some of what makes this one stand out, 8MP camera w/ 1080p recording, 4G LTE, HDMI out and a dual core processor.

    I like that the theme cuts across different forms of media such as the tie in with the ARena app where you build a Bionic by grabbing parts from multiple robots.

    NO offense to your filming cypherx82, anyone here involved in the post (i.e kellex), or the BIONIC but that commercial is dumb.

      Hate to say it, but I agree. Maybe we have outgrown the target demographic?

  • Anonymous

    When people were saying that the first commercial was stupid because it had nothing to do with a phone, I just sat back and laughed because I knew something like this would come soon after. I mean really, what did everyone expect? :)

    • James_Ever

      That this should’ve been what they showed when the commerical first aired because now with only a day left until the launch many outside of the community have no idea what this device is. Of course those that follow these websites regularly know somewhat to a degree to expect the mass consumers still don’t have a clue what the Bionic is and how powerful it is. The advertising waited too long to release information on the Bionic.

        This phone is not going to be sold for just one day. And they don’t need to sell out of stock across the country in 9 minutes.

          Its funny.  On OG Droid release day I went super early.  They opened at 7am and I thought there would be a huge line. I was first.  I was the First person in all of Indiana to have a Droid.  Maybe ill be first to Bionic as well?  LOL.

      He was totally BS’ing you so that maybe you would get a phone today.  No way in hell BB gets the phone later than costco and verizon.  Too big of a retailer.

          Ads have already confirmed 9/8, and I spoke with a rep who confirmed its release.  I’ve seen the launch kit, dummy phone, etc.  This thing will be in stores 9/8, 100%.

    I just stopped into the Verizon store by my house and talked to a representative about the Bionic. After a lengthy talk, she actually admitted that she had the phone and pulled it out of her pocket and let me play with it. She just activated the phone before I came in. The phone is ridiculously fast and actually really light (lighter than my Incredible 2). The main  reason I stopped in was because I wanted to get a closer look at the pentile screens on the X2 and the Droid 3, and I just got super super lucky that she had the Bionic in her pocket. I do have to say though…..I am not a fan of that pentile screen. I am really on the fence now about the phone. It is very noticeable and just doesn’t look like a phone of that caliber should look. With that said, I would happily deal with that screen though if it drastically improves the battery life on the phone. I’m sure that after awhile I would get uses to it, and at the end of the day it is still just a phone.

      so did she say its available thursday? most verizon people have no clue about the phone at all

        Went in to my local store, its available thursday.

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=504881848 Brandon Hampton

          I asked her if it was going to be available on the 8th and she just smiled and laughed and said that you couldn’t say anything, but that I should “leave” the Thursday open. Unless something crazy happens, then I would expect the 8th to go through. They have all the phones there ready to go.

        Your Right. i Called Verizon Today and they said they haven’t Received Official Word on The Phones Release Date, If 9-8-11 is real release date why hasn’t Verizon Confirmed?! its only Two Days Away :/ its Making me Nervous, Feels like I’ve been waiting AGES.

        Well…it is going to be my next phone ’cause damnit, I’ve been waiting months for this stellar device, and trust me when I say this, I’ve really enjoyed the hell outta my Droid X since I got it mid-2010, and the Bionic is a definite upgrade from the DX, 100%.

        So yeah, I could wait until the quad-core phones start coming out, but for one, that won’t be for awhile, and two, they will be expensive even with a 2-year contract.

        Granted I won’t be able to officially upgrade until Mar. 2012, but as a loyal and veteran Verizon customer, maybe they will grant me an early-early upgrade or a discount of sorts. Pretty doubtful, but definitely worth a shot. Also, if I can’t in fact upgrade until early next year, at least the Bionic may be cheaper even with an upgrade/2-year contract, etc.

          The other day, I said Raj should get a free Bionic for his enduring enthusiasm for the phone. If I was “in charge,” you’d be on the free phone list as well. Your enthusiasm here has gotten me to try more than one game that I initially “meh’d.” :-)

            hahah, yeah, I wish you were in charge, as a free Bionic would be one hell of a surprise! Thanks man!

            Well…I just figure it like this. Ever since I first heard about the Droid Bionic months ago, I’ve been eagerly waiting for its arrival. Sure, some(most) thought the Bionic was never going to see the light of day because of its abrupt exit from the world a few months back, I knew, I seriously knew it would find its way to the world once more. And damnit, tomorrow is that day when the world finally gets a chance to see something truly special. I feel like I NEED to get the Droid Bionic. And I know I want feel about the Bionic how I felt about my Droid X a year ago. Like, this IS the device to own.

            My first ever ‘smart’phone was the Blackberry Storm and boy was that a fail and a half. Then when I got my Droid X, I erased all known memories of my experience with the Blackberry Storm from my brain because when I first started using my Droid X, I knew that THIS device was my first real smartphone.

            So long story short, the Droid Bionic has to be my next device as it’ll be my first duel-core phone just like the Droid X was my first real smartphone, and damnit, I know the Bionic will bloody rock!

          Droid x was the best device 2010, including the plastic device nexus S. The bionic will be the best device 2011 :)

    On a side note: went into Verizon tonight to see if they had a dummy model I could play with.  Ended up getting an appointment to purchase the Bionic Thursday morning with a few accessories.  I’m guaranteed the phone.  Today was just so win.

      Lucky! Can’t upgrade until early next year, unless Verizon is kind enough to give me an early-early upgrade, but somehow I doubt that’s going to happen.

      • Bewara2009

        they are letting ppl upgrade early. My friend doesn’t upgrade until 05/12/12 but he got an email saying you can upgrade early if you want. Call up Verizon and tell them about the offer that everyone is getting.
