It’s been an excruciating wait for the Droid Bionic — a truly painful seven months. But over the past month, we’ve gotten our hands on little bits of relief. Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha promised a “September” release in late July, and just a week later, IGN found Verizon’s device road map which pegged the Bionic for a September 8 launch date.
Today we landed another hefty signal that the Bionic launch is nearly upon us. A leaked copy of Best Buy’s Buyer’s Guide was obtained by TechnoBuffalo, and is apparently chock full of Bionic ads. The Buyer’s Guide is slated to run on Sunday, which means that the September 8 launch date is almost certainly spot on. Unfortunately, an exact date wasn’t included in the Buyer’s Guide.
Specs on this bad boy include a dual-core 1 GHz processor underneath Android 2.3 Gingerbread, along with support for Verizon’s 4G LTE network. The Bionic is also confirmed to have a 4.3-inch qHD touchscreen based on details within its FCC filing and this lovely ad within Best Buy’s Buyer’s Guide. You’ll also get an 8-megapixel shooter capable of video capture in 1080p, along with a front-facing camera for video chat. No word yet on how much the Bionic will cost you, but don’t expect it to be cheap.
