Motorola Droid Bionic TV Ad Nails Release Date

Woah there, news is now coming in on the Motorola Droid Bionic so fast that it’s difficult to keep up with. Yesterday we gave you news of various snippets that seemed to all but confirm that September 8 release date. Today we have yet more news including a TV ad that pretty much nails that same release date and we also have news on the full specs.

A week ago we gave details of a very stylish teaser ad in which the month ‘September’ was flashed up briefly at the end, a sign that pleased a lot of people as it seemed to verify the rumors of a September release date. Now an eagle-eyed TV viewer has made a very interesting spot. According to Kevin Krause over on Phandroid, a reader by the name of Edmond was watching TV late last night when up came the usual Droid Bionic ‘Rule All Machines’ commercial. However instead of the previous ‘September’ flash a date came up instead, you guessed it, September 8.

Although this still isn’t official confirmation from Motorola’s or Verizon’s lips we’re pretty certain they wouldn’t be running an ad with that date appearing if the handset weren’t actually coming on September 8 and so until we hear any different, that’s what we’re going with. You can even see the changed TV ad on a YouTube clip below this story, just in case you still have any doubts.

In other launch news Kellex over on Droid-Life has revealed a Verizon equipment guide, also showing the Bionic will be available in all channels on September 8 and as if that isn’t enough the same article shows a list of full and comprehensive specs in all it’s glory. Hit the link for more on that. On top of that…pause for breath, in another article Droid-Life also shows more confirmation of the Droid Bionic heading to Verizon with plenty of images of various accessories.

Finally, one more morsel for you comes from Phil Nickinson over on Android Central. We already gave you details about a special Costco deal on a Motorola Droid Bionic bundle with free accessories and Nickinson shows a Costco screenshot, also showing September 8 as the date the Droid Bionic will finally be hitting the shelves.

It’s not very often we’d believe rumors of a release date before it was officially confirmed by either the carrier or manufacturer, but frankly this is as good as it gets and we’ll eat our hats if it doesn’t duly arrive a week from today. Are you still sold on the Droid Bionic or could you be tempted by the Galaxy S II or iPhone 5? Let us know by sending your comments.
