As we continue to inch ever nearer to the release date of the Droid Bionic, more information and teasers keep finding their way online. Today we finally get to take a good look at the Bionic’s boot sequence, along with a very quick walk through of the UI.
The first thing you’ll notice is, yes, the the boot animation is incredibly cool. Motorola is sticking with the evil(ish) robotic overlord theme for the Bionic, and it still works. Moto has created an ultra powerful borg-like persona for their Droid series devices. Fans of the series absolutely love it. In a leaked (and now pulled) commercial for the Bionic that recently surfaced on the web, it appears Motorola is going with the tag line “Rule All Machines.” It doesn’t get more Android than that.
From what we can see of the UI, Motorola is continuing to fine tune their smartphone experience. According to the tipster who submitted the video, the newest version of “BLUR” is “snappier and better looking than previous versions.” We’ll let you be the judge of that, once the device is finally released.
It’s pretty well solidified at this point. The Bionic will hit retail shelves in the first half of September for $299 with a two-year contract. 4.3-inch qHD display, dual-core processor, WebTop support, HDMI mirroring and all. Are you ready to be assimilated? Resistance is futile.
