Motorola Droid Bionic MAP Listing Shows $299 Price Starting September 8th

Yesterday, we got word that the Motorola Droid Bionic’s release date might actually be in August. August 26th, a Thursday, to be exact. We also learned that it might be coming with a full retail price of $587 dollars. My guess is that it will probably be $600 off-contract when it launches.

Of course, that August release date didn’t really jive with Motorola’s official September launch month and that rumored September 8th launch date that we saw before.

Well, today, Droid-Life procured more evidence that suggests that the September 8th launch date is the real deal and that we will probably see the Droid Bionic launch with an on-contract price of $299.

The evidence is the Droid Bionic’s appearance on Verizon’s MAP (minimum advertised list) which has it with a $299 MAP price during a period that runs from September 8th to March 8th 2012.

So, September 8th for $299 on-contract is looking like it’s probably what’s going to go down, any one still interested?

Remember, the Google Nexus Prime is rumored to be launching in October with Ice Cream Sandwich and that’s going to be a tough phone to pass up, I think.

    $300 is probably not what most of you were hoping for and I’d like to include myself in that group. $250 was reasonable but I think that extra $50 is going to drive a lot of people to the Galaxy S II, Nexus Prime and a $199 iPhone.

    I’m going to stay optimistic though.

    I was fully expecting $300 because that’s what Verizon has been charging for the Droid Charge and the Bionic is a superior phone.  I’m not sure why people would go to a Verizon store or a Verizon VAR and buy a phone since you can get them cheaper elsewhere especially a couple of weeks after launch.

    Wirefly or The Shack would by my first stops.  Although I might try brow beating a Verizon store employee into giving me some sort of discount.  If that doesn’t work, I’ll try some poor sap over the phone.  Although, the stuff I’ve been hearing about the Verizon protests has left a bit of a sour taste in my mouth.  There’s always Sprint…[sigh]

    Im sure the nexus prime will be pushed later then Oct.. an who even knows if we’ll see it at Verizon.. We Haven’t had any Nexus love yet!  
    Either way, I have 2 upgrades an my new every 2. Ill probably get the bionic because I cant mentally wait longer for new phones after this past year, then leave my 2nd upgrade to see what the future holds!  Ohh and im on unlimited data for $19.99 a month, Im in a good spot for this upcoming season 80)

    Would like to hear more about this new Motorola HD. It might come with the two features I wanted most 4.5 HD screen and global ready (next to 4G and dual core of course) but I’m a little concerned it might not be 4G or be offered on the Verizon network. Can’t stand the wait need a little patience.
