After Going Crazy Robot Battles, DROID Bionic Campaign Returns to its Roots

YouTube Preview Image

The first couple of DROID Bionic spots came out were pretty intense.  Robot battles, heads blown off, an arena that looked straight out of Mad Max, and some lovely lady that could be Natalie Portman’s twin.  In this new spot though, it almost brings back some memories of that first OG campaign with the DROID voice, the smooth talkin’ DROID guy in the background, and a feature getting the spotlight to help sell the phone.  Refreshing.

    How has no one picked up on the fact that the last commercial claims the Bionic is 0.4 inches wide. For those of you keeping score, that’s less than a half inch. Is it the new slim Bionic? Nice one Verizon.

    Damn. They couldn’t find a model whose ass was not so flat?

    Was it me or did the Bionic kind of morphed into a smaller handset about 20 seconds into the first vidio, if that’s thats the case they should’ve left that funtion to the “Prime”…..I’m due for an upgrade but I’m holding out to see what the Prime has to offer…

    Hmm how do you access your home computer remotely? I didnt even know we could do that.

      With the zumocast software that comes on the phone.  You have to download client software on your PC and set up a login… Once you do that, you can access pre-designated shared folders/media from your phone.  It works pretty good.

        Cool Ill give it a try

    That broad has a nice penthouse there.  Geez.  So if I get a Bionic does the penthouse and the broad come with it?  Can they be add-on accessories?  Also, what kind of blueprint is she working on?  A man killing machine?

    Pushin the Zumocast pretty hard.. It is actually pretty nice software for free.. I had a problem with it not playing my MP3s at first, but it seems to have fixed itself.. it is a awesome selling point for the phone.

    Control it and you control everything… Provided your battery doesn’t crap out and your radio chip isn’t bad..

      Gingerbread is actually better with battery life from what I’ve heard. {{-_-}}

  • Sirx

    It really does control all machines–I couldn’t get my toaster to pop out my toast over wi-fi, but after I whacked it a few times with the Bionic, it coughed up my breakfast!  Next:  My clothes steamer…

    For goodness’ sake, guys, it’s Lance Henriksen, also known as Bishop from Aliens!  (A subtle Android reference for those who know).  Not “the Droid guy.”

    And if you haven’t seen Aliens, well, you’ll need to remedy that.

    • EC8CH

      that’s the guy!  I knew his face but couldn’t remember in what movies I’ve seen him. Thanks!

    The voice sounds less like Optimus Prime in this one, must be busy getting ready for Droid Prime commercials XP

  • Mctypething

    Wow, a commercial for a smartphone that actually showcases the product itself. Novel concept.

      haha too easy, but true, apple does best of showing the phone and what it does in tv ads

      • http://twitter.com/Dirtball_Rotten Dirtball Rotten

      unbelievable it I just got a $829.99 iPad2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HDTV for only $251.92, they are both coming with USPS tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prices at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HDTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for. I use http://lu2su.net/h5c

  • EC8CH

    Wow… so it can access a jpg from a PC over wifi!

    Pretty sure I did that with my OGD and a file manager app 2 years ago.

    • Bionic

      Um no dude.  You can be at your office and using LTE you can access ANYTHING on your computer.  Understand what zumocast is before you judge it.  

      • EC8CH

        Yeah, I guess I needed to be on the same wifi network so being able to do that over the mobile network would be an improvement.

        • Bionic

          Yup basically say your on a train ride from work to home and you want to watch an episode of a show you recorded on your computer at home.  over LTE you can do this and watch said episode on your phone.  But i hope anyone doing this has unlimited data, LOL

          • EC8CH

            In a nutshell it allows you to be your own cloud storage provider.

          • Bionic

            yes.  just make sure you have your home computer set up to never go to sleep or shut down when idle.  

      • PyroHoltz

        I’ve still been doing this for a couple years, it’s called FTP. Over 3G it’s slow, yes and LTE would make it slick but it’s not really a novel concept just more polished for the everyday user.

        • Anonymous

          Actually it is more novel than you think.  FTP gives you a direct line to single computer.  If that computer changes locations your FTP settings all change.  Zumocast acts like a bridge to give you access to your computer whether it is at home or at work. …and you don’t need to know anything other than your login so no one gets scared by IP addresses and server names.   People don’t get FTP. People easily get this app.

      u mad bro?
