Verizon has decided to cut the price of its Motorola Droid Bionic, which until now was sold for $199 on contract. The new price is $99 (also on contract), but there’s a catch: Verizon is no longer offering the 16GB MicroSD card that was included when the handset’s price was $100 higher.
So now the phone is offered as the “Droid Bionic by Motorola 16GB”, since it remained with just the 16GB of storage space it has on board. Anyway, if $99 seems like a reasonable price to you (and, well, it is), and you don’t want newer LTE smartphones line the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Motorola Droid Razr Maxx or Motorola Droid 4, the Bionic can be bought here at Verizon.
The Droid Bionic has been included in Moto’s list of devices that would get an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, although a timeframe for the update wasn’t provided. Well, at least we know it will come eventually.
