Something strange has brewed over at the Asurion website. The enrollment form, the one people use to apply for replacement devices, seems to have one “DROID Bionic 2” listed underneath Motorola phones. This name hasn’t been in the rumor mill at all until now, and Droid-Life makes a pretty good point that the Motorola DROID RAZR has multiple entries for different colors, and the DROID Bionic does technically come in two versions – one without a 16GB microSD card and a retired one with a microSD card. The “Bionic 2” could refer to that. Or it could be a devastating mistake by Asurion resulting in the mobile world’s acknowledgement of a follow-up to the original. Either way, only time will tell what the case is.
