The Droid Bionic is so close to launch, that I can almost taste it. It’s been so long since its original debut at CES 2011, that it almost seems pointless for them to launch it. Still, Verizon and their marketing team have assigned a hefty budget to make people experience all kinds of crazies for the Droid Bionic. Thankfully, it will go on sale in just a few short days, on September the 8th

Some in the blogosphere are criticizing it for having a near identical UI to the Motorola Droid 3, but it matters not. Rumored to have 100,000 units available on launch day, and judging from the amount of people that come to Android Authority on a daily basis looking for more news nuggets about the Droid Bionic, it’s safe to say that this particular phone will sell like hotcakes.

Anyway, here’s a short video that shows off the retail box, and a quick hands on of the UI and the about screen. As always, we love to hear your comments. You can be sure that the manufacturers are watching. Does this phone live up to your expectations or are you holding out for the Nexus Prime?
