Motorola Droid Bionic officially hits Verizon Sept. 8 [Update: Nope]

The long wait for the Droid Bionic is almost over, as Verizon’s first dual-core, 4G LTE phone will be landing Sept. 8.

“On September 8th 2011, the Motorola Droid Bionic will be in your hands.” the Droid Bionic official Twitter account said.

This will end a long and strange journey, as the Motorola Droid Bionic was first introduced in January at CES with a scheduled summer release time. Since then, the Droid Bionic has gone through a system redesign, three Verizon 4G LTE phones have been released and Motorola itself has been acquired by Google (or will be soon).

The long wait may have also killed some of the buzz, as Blake is passing on the Droid Bionic in favor of the upcoming Samsung Nexus Prime. Still, the Droid Bionic will offer the magical combination of a dual-core processor, 4G LTE and the Droid brand, so I expect it to sell a bunch of units.

Are you still waiting for Droid Bionic? Verizon hasn’t given us an official price yet but don’t be surprised to see this one retail for a little bit more than the standard $199.

[Update] It looks like the account is a fake but we’re still hearing that Sept. 8 might be the day. My bad, guys. I was too quick to draw.
