Best Buy September buyer’s guide is out which features a little something called the DROID Bionic

We showed you the leaked image last week so it is no surprise that the DROID Bionic is officially in the Best Buy September buyer’s guide. It just came out, and the full specs are listed with no surprises. We just want the phone to just launch already. Main specs include a 4.3″ qHD screen, OMAP4 dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8MP rear camera, VGA front camera, and 4G LTE. The price isn’t listed, but we are expecting $299 with a 2-year contract or $589 off contract.

If this phone didn’t have 4G LTE, it wouldn’t stand a chance against the upcoming release of Verizon’s version of the Samsung Galaxy S II. It still could be dead in the water, but I am still anxious to get my hands on one.
