Verizon Motorola Droid Bionic minimum advertised price leaks, may launch on September 8
Tired of hearing all the speculation regarding the upcoming Motorola Droid Bionic for Verizon? Well, don’t be. There’s more. And, after all, this isn’t an Apple product, so know that it can get even worse, rumor-wise.
Okay. Now that we’ve cleared that up, it’s time to dive into today’s Droid Bionic news. Thanks to Android Central, the MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) for the Droid Bionic has leaked. This doesn’t mean that the phone absolutely won’t be sold for a lower price, it just means that when that’s the case, you’ll have to do stuff like add it to your cart in order to see the price. It’s also pretty clear that this will be how much Verizon will charge for the Bionic when you sign a new two-year contract.
And just how much are we talking about here? $299.99, as you can see. That’s quite a lot, but we’ve unfortunately gotten used to Verizon’s attempts to push high-end (and especially 4G) devices past the $199.99 marker which has been the upper standard ever since the original iPhone got unveiled.
Alongside the MAP comes yet another projected release date, and this time it’s September 8. That bodes nicely with one previous rumor that mentioned early September as the time frame for the Bionic’s launch, but, to be honest, we’ve heard so many release dates rumored and leaked for the Bionic over the past few months that we don’t know what to believe anymore. We sure hope that Motorola’s superphone will launch in September and end this rumor frenzy. We’ll see.
