Have we mentioned the Motorola Droid Bionic will be available Sept. 8? Oh, good. Because it's now finally officially official. Price is official as well: $299 with a two-year contract.
This has without a doubt been one of the strangest roads to launch for a smartphone in recent memory. The Droid Bionic was initially announced in January at CES (see our hands-on) but was scrapped for revamped hardware, which has been leaked just about every which way since.
Now you're basically getting an LTE version of the Droid X2, with a 4.3-inch qHD display, 1GB of RAM, Android 2.3.4, Motorola's Webtop features, Gorilla Glass, and a 1735 mAh battery, which should help add a little life to the LTE device. Verizon's also staking the Droid Bionic's claim as the thinnest LTE smartphone at 11mm, but that's not as svelte as the new Galaxy S II on Sprint.
Anyhoo, we'll just have to see whether the wait -- and the price -- make it worth it. Full press release is after the break.
