DROID Bionic for Verizon launching in early September?

DROID-BIONIC_Front_Horiz_Home_CES

The DROID Bionic was a hot announcement during CES, and we really couldn’t wait to get our hands on one. However, we didn’t realize that the spec-packed Android handset would take several months to hit the market. We’re now hearing that the DROID Bionic isn’t going to arrive until early September – what gives?

Droid-Life says according to its sources:

We had been hearing 9/1 from a variety of sources over the last two weeks and should have stuck with that date.  According to a report received today along with this photo, Motorola reps are telling VZW folks that they should expect the device in “early September.”

Over the past seven months since CES – has that much time passed already? – several 1GHz dual-core processor Android devices have hit the market. A few of them have been big hits, some with 3D capabilities and cameras. Will the DROID Bionic be as much of a hit when it finally lands at Verizon? It has a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 4G LTE capabilities (battery life?), 512MB of RAM and a 4.3-inch qHD capacitive touchscreen. That ought to squash any concerns about this thing’s relevance or being future-proof when compared to its competitors.

If these rumors are true, there is just about one month left before this beast hits Verizon shelves everywhere. Until then, try holding your breath a little longer – it shouldn’t be too hard.

    Lets hope so, I’ve been waiting ages for this phone.

    I’m tired of the waiting. I’m now looking at the Samsung Galaxy S II. It rumored to be coming out the middle of August

      It seems everyone is waiting for the Galaxy S II. It’s going to be a big hit when it finally launches in the U.S.

    Motorola still hasn’t released an official spec sheet for the Bionic. And every other review I see, lists different specs (1.0Ghz/1.2Ghz dual-core, 4.3″/4.5″ qHD display, 5MP/8MP camera, Tegra2/OMAP proc). 

    Perhaps now that we have a ‘real’ release date, they’ll actually tell us what they put into that slab. Unless, of course, it’s been delayed due to yet another change.
