The Droid Bionic is probably one of the most awaited devices this year, and it’s finally been given a September release. There’s been a lot of speculation about it – too much speculation even. Until recently, we’ve been only been able to get the specs out of the rumor mill, but thankfully, they’ve finally been confirmed. Well folks, that has just changed. An anonymous tipster just showed off a video of the Droid Bionic boot sequence. Check it out below:

Taking a look at the video, you can see that the long wait that people have endured for the Bionic hasn’t been in vain. The smooth boot up alone should show everyone that the dual-core CPUs powering this baby are hard at work, and that’s just not all. It also shows off how fast the Verizon 4G connection delivers a quick Internet experience with a speed test.

Even with only one bar of connectivity, the network still manages to deliver very impressive numbers. We even manage to get a glimpse of the latest incarnation of BLUR, which the tipster promises is a vast improvement over early versions, delivering a snappier and better-looking experience.

The video shows off all the work that Motorola has put into their latest product and all the buzz is worth it. Even the one month delay that pushed it back from the first week of August to September seems to be a legitimate move to make it better. Priced at $299, the Bionic boasts a 1GHz Texas Instruments dual-core CPU backed by 1GB of DDR2 RAM, two cameras, and a 4.3 inch touchscreen. Expect to see it in Verizon stores next month.

    Where are you located? I’m looking at maps to determine where the Bionic will get the best speeds and the speed you got isn’t very much better than the 3g we were already using. We’ve been holding out for Bionic to use in mobile business. We need to be able to work efficiently with our CRM and inventory software which requires a lot of document uploads. We almost switched to the Atrix based on price but AT&T’s network is beyond horrible. We’ve done fine in the past with 3G mobile hotspots but that was before we had the ability to take our entire office on the road.
