Droid Bionic 4G: April Release Date & Price Given, Is This It?

Motorola’s Droid Bionic smartphone is causing quite a stir on the internet, and is rumored to be a massive contender against other handsets on and making their way to the current market. One such phone is that of the HTC Thunderbolt running on Verizon‘s 4G LTE network which we have to say has received mixed reaction from customers due to initial teething problems. But along with what the device will pack, the main question on people’s lips is obviously the release date and price which plays a huge part in the decision making.

Although nothing has been set in stone, the Bionic was and is still rumored to make an entrance some time in April, which to be fair, is really not that long away. Over at 3aime.com, the speculated date that many are putting their money on is 21st April 2011, a view shared by examiner.com in recent news from them. But if we just cast our minds back for one moment, the Thunderbolt was expected to release on various dates only to disappoint many of you when it didn’t produce.

So what about a price for the 4.3-inch display Bionic, which has been compared to the Apple iPhone in terms of screen resolution and coincidentally will be bringing with it a dual-core processor, 2 cameras with HD video recording, 512MB of DDR2 RAM and so on? A rumored price for this little gem which brings music to our ears is from Amazon at a price of $149.99 with a new 2-year Verizon data plan or a stand-alone price of $599.99.

Are you holding out for the new Droid Bionic, or will you wait to see customer reviews before deciding? Or even still, wait for the forthcoming iPhone 5 sometime in the summer?

    I’m saving up to get an iPhone… But only after I get a betamax, a pet rock, a furby and a Commodore 64.

    I remember the Commodore 64s! It was my very first computer, back when it was a bit extravagant to have a computer in the home. It was my uncle's from waaay back. It still used floppy disks, Ah, mem'ries. Speaking of memories, I need to see the recording quality of the camcorder aspect of this phone before I buy. I am SO sick of my camcorder!

    This is likely my next phone, but I hope Moto doesn't screw us and does actually deliver with Webtop on this phone eventually. I hate those "it will get an upgrade, date TBD" type of announcements. Nothing for sure, nothing in writing. I might have to wait until June/July to actually get it then…ugh.

    WoW! End of April? Can't wait to finish contract with ATT in end of May.

    After almost a year at the Droid X steering wheel I’am a believer…This phone is the all mighty one! I Still consider the X the Baddest phone on the planet….How can it be better….Really now? I peeped the LTE 4G on the Thunderbolt over the weekend….Its the real deal! One word “Ssshhhhhwwwwweeeeetttttt!”

    Cant wait for this release. Hopefully its sometime in april, other sources are saying may or even June.
    Im a little worried though about the negative feedback on Motorola and motoblur. Is a locked bootloader that big of a deal?

    I won't be the first in line for a Bionic because I'll want to read reviews. I've waited so goddam long for the Bionic that I won't mind waiting another month or two if it is flawed and something better might be coming along (iPhone 5, anybody?).
