Nine long, leak-filled months later, the Motorola DROID Bionic is finally available.  No more blurry images, no more "New DROID Bionic specs surface!" posts - it's ready to be purchased at retail stores today for $299.99 with a two-year contract.

For the Android enthusiast, it's packing some serious tech: 1 GHz dual-core CPU, 4.3-inch qHD display with PenTile technology (love it or hate it), 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, a front-facing camera for video calling, and Android 2.3 with Motorola's custom UI.  I'm still in the early phases of testing, but the 1,735 mAh battery seems to be holding its own against the power suck that is 4G LTE.  It's a well-rounded device and is Verizon's best 4G LTE phone to date, despite the lofty price tag.

Sadly, today's mobile market moves at the speed of light, and what's considered a "high end" device will be old news tomorrow.  The DROID Bionic was amazing in January and still is, but rumors of the Nexus Prime have made some Android fans reconsider dropping the cash right now.

Did you purchase the DROID Bionic today, or are you waiting for the Nexus Prime?  Perhaps the iPhone 5?  You know what to do - cast that vote and hit the comments section with your thoughts!
