Motorola Droid Bionic Preview Video Pops Up – Shows Off Boot And More

An anonymous tipster just hooked us up with a video that shows the Droid Bionic boot sequence. Folks have been waiting a LONG time for the Bionic and with an early September release looking promising, we’re hoping you won’t have to wait much longer.

Take a look how fast Verizon 4G works and note that it looks like they’ve only got 1 bar of connectivity. We briefly see BLUR which our tipster says is snappier and better looking than previous versions, but you’ll have to stay tuned for a more in depth demo.

If you’re eagerly awaiting the Bionic we highly suggest you head over to our Droid Bionic Forums where a boat load of folks are already talking about the device. Already? I mean… nevermind.

How do you like that red computer chip wallpaper?

    The skin (BLUR or whatever Moto is calling it now) actually looks pretty good. I still wish you could get the stock status bar though.

  • GawkerRedesignSucks

    It actually seemed a little slow to me. I saw a few hangups…nothing major, but as much as this thing has been overhyped, I expected Galaxy S II-like performance.

    • Michael Yuen

      The few hangups could be a result of the phone booting up and still loading everything in the background.

        Could also be youtube. I didn’t notice anything lagging.

    I heard that moto is going to release code for vanilla RIL. I hope this is true

    Already? You just made my day, Rob. Looks like it doesn’t have any redraw issues like the Droid 3 has.

  • UniqueNate

    I just want the contacts widget and that wallpaper on my Nexus S4G

  • MarcusDW

    The days of Motoblur from the Cliq are clearly over. The new stuff actually looks pretty good.

  • Abel G

    gotta admit, being the bionic/moto hater that i am, I think i like it, even blur is looking good, might have to add the bionic into my consideration list after all

  • corymcnutt

    In answer to your question…NO, I do not like the red background; that will be the first thing I change, ha!

  • Scott Attula

    Wow. This thing looks even cooler than I thought. And yes, before I read that question I thought that background was cool as hell lol. I’ll change it, but it still looks pretty awesome. I love the look of that boot screen.

  • letstalktablets

    Looks pretty cool if you ask me and those upload/download speeds are also impressive

  • RoadsterHD1

    Can we get some bench marks please

  • baopham

    The blue plus grid and the highlighting boxes indicating there is another homes creen to the left and right ripped from Honeycomb? Ugh I’m gonna have a headache if Blur and stock android start merging with each other….

  • Michael Montanez much as i hate blur (any skin overlay for that face) this actually looks pretty good… really digging the screen transition when scrolling betweeen homescreens….reminds me of honeycomb…but for phones

  • aoleu


  • Joni Johirul

    If i am not mistaking.. but is that the ICE CREAM Update????

    • HalfwayCrook

      Hmmmmmm, maybe moto had access to Ics so they just copies the ui elements.

    • stannhan

      its not gonna be ics, its just the new revamped motoblur that motorola is calling motorola’s applicaton platform

    • SavageJeep

      We haven’t seen ICS.
      Any purported viewings have mostly proven fake.

  • DCLozano

    Wow. The UI looks so smooth and sleek. Definitely not the same skin I saw on the last couple of Moto devices. Might be pulling the trigger and getting this instead of waiting for the Vigor. Might be…

  • stannhan

    i want that wallpaper

  • R L

    What up Sauron

  • Xavier Plasencia

    god i hate the blur ui so much way too much shit going on it looks like they are trying way too much and that grid shit they copied off of honeycomb, garage. If only they just left it stock like they did with my phone OG Droid I would actually want it. If rumors are true. Soon motorola will drop the blur ui.

  • Zed Fable

    Guys, this thing does look pretty good- but, its EXACTLY the same MotoBlur interface as the Droid 3. This kind of cements in my mind the huge hype-gap there is between the Bionic and D3.

    The bionic will be awesome, no doubt- but if you are holding out for it right now and you don’t need 4G, you owe it to yourself to go to a Verizon store and try it out.
