Droid Bionic shows in Best Buy ad

Motorola's reborn Droid Bionic got a sure clue as to a nearer release with the sighting of an official Best Buy ad. The promo This is my next identified shows the entirely new design seen weeks ago and also confirms a handful of features, such as the dual-core (now TI OMAP) processor, HDMI video mirroring, video chat, and wireless file sharing. Best Buy refers to the 4G phone as an "all-powerful, unstoppable machine."

The release date is absent in the ad, although a more recent discovery has pointed to an August 4 release. Timing of the sort would likely justify marketing material being ready with less than a month to go.

Motorola had shown off the Bionic at CES in early January but in very different form and using an NVIDIA Tegra 2. Just weeks later, it scrapped the original design and only let users know of the remake in April. At the time, it portrayed the change as being a minor upgrade, but it was ultimately introducing an entirely new phone with a processor switch. Motorola acknowledged that incorporating LTE was to blame, and many suspect that a difficult conflict between Motorola's 4G hardware and the Tegra 2 prevented it from getting the Bionic out on time.

The Android 2.3 flagship should be the first dual-core 4G phone on Verizon and will give it one of its better screens with a 4.3-inch, 540x960 display.
