Motorola DROID Bionic Slowly Being Wiped Away From OEM’s Site?


Some odd activity is going on over at Motorola’s site today. The Motorola DROID Bionic – a device headed straight for Verizon but was said to be cancelled for a more “enhanced” device – appears to be slowly disappearing from Motorola’s website. A link to the device’s main product page on their front-page carousel takes us to their overall phone support page for all of their products. Clicking on “Android Phones” under “Mobile Phones” in their main navigation bar takes us to a list of their Android-based devices where the DROID Bionic is missing.

We also stumbled across a link where it would appear that the page still exists, but looking closely at the link we were sent shows a different localeid – the original link doesn’t include this. Our friend Kellex – who reported the same over at Droid-Life – says it could be due to the fact that Motorola missed this page in some horrible, horrible purging of the device’s existence. This is possibly evidenced by the “Compatibility” link on that same page taking us to that same general support section.

I’m not sure how accurate that may be, though, considering the device’s page is still up on MOTODEV. And the fact that they haven’t taken it off the front page carousel makes me suspicious of it just being an error, as well. Or they could just be making room for the Motorola Targa. Who knows? We’ll be keeping our eye on this one. [Thanks Dave!] PS: No, Motorola, it most certainly isn’t the end of waiting. We’ve been waiting for this thing since January, after all.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Quick bugging, guys. The Bionic is coming. It’s just a little late. :-)

    The links appear to be fixed now.

    1. even if it’s “coming” it’s going to be that much closer to the Targa that no one is going to want it

  2. It will still come. It will just be later than intended and truthfully, I have to commend Motorola for pulling back the device instead of shipping it filled with issues and fixing later with updates. No “official” date was given for release for a reason. It’s only us Geeks clinging to every TIP and RUMOR that make this seem to be an especially long wait. I’m just gonna sit back, sip my beer and chill out until the real deal decides to come out of the shadows. Peace

    1. Pointed this out in the article.

      1. I saw, but it’s a dead link. It just goes back to the article.

  3. i like the cheesey Bionic name….maybe they will keep the form factor the same and update the chipset to the nvidia tegra 3 quadcore??? MMMmmm, quadcore Tegra 3 Bionic release in July, I would wait for that :)

  4. As soon as you check the “see all” box, it comes up in the list. Android device qty changes from 5 to 6.

    Stop crying, Chicken Little.

  5. i cant find it anywhere on the Motorola site… really disappointed considering i played with it at CES this year…… oh well….

  6. They said they’re making form changes based on feedback, so of course they’d be taking down images of a phone that may look quite different upon release. I wouldn’t call this news.

  7. HILARIOUS!!!! “Why would I get the thunderbolt when dual cores are around the corner. I’ll wait for the Bionic.” Well looks like you’ll be waiting a LOT longer now…

  8. These pop up ads are totally awful and renders these pages nearly unreadable. I am typing this comment underneath the ad itself…while using the stock Android browser. Epic fail. Deleting my Phandroid bookmark if this isn’t corrected soon.

  9. Haha fags

    1. Really classy…. tool.

      1. he forgot to mention sprint…

        1. You forgot to read that he is a troll of a troll.
