Motorola Droid Bionic Cases Show Up at Retailer, Still No Launch Date [Update: More Locations]

Here we sit over half a year since the announcement of the Motorola DROID BIONIC and still we have no release date to speak of. Sure, we have some ideas. The end of July/early August seem like a good bet, and if accessories showing up at one Michigan retailer are any indication that just might turn out true. We typically see accessories show up right around the launch of a new device, but in some instances it hasn’t quite worked out that way (looking at you, HTC Thunderbolt). Still, accessories appearing on Amazon and in stores are about as good a sign as any we have right now that the Droid Bionic is (finally) right around the corner.

[UPDATE]: A reader spotted another Droid Bionic case on the floor of an Auburn, Michigan Meijer and kindly sent along the above image.

    If you measure the protective accessory (pictured above) for the Droid Bionic diagonally, you will be able to confirm for sure whether it is a 4.3″ or 4.5″ screen. What’s the point of putting up a picture without giving any details about the picture, in this case the dimensions….

    Honestly I’m about ready to leave Verizon simply because they have no decent “upgrade” device and have not announced the details or release date of the bionic. Attempting to drag this out and drum up interest is only succeeding in driving some people away.

    I’m so over this. When is the Nexus Prime coming out?

    This case is for the OLD Bionic. The old design had a vertical lens and flash. The new pics from Amazon have the horizontal lens and flash. Just saying

      There seems to be a bunch of cases on sale actually that look to be for the old Bionic with the vertical lens and flash. Guess they never got the memo? What a confusing mess this is going to be for consumers if people have old style cases for sale. I feel sorry for all the manufacturers that had the design and cases ready to go for May only to see Moto do a 180 and change it all. But these should be pulled now and it doesn’t look like that is happening.
