We have seen this date (August 4) pop up more than any other surrounding the DROID Bionic, so are we ready to accept it yet? Well, we arenít sure still. According to indirect retailers for Verizon, the device could be arriving in display form on 7/29 (this Friday) with actual stock of the phone showing up on 8/1 before Thursdayís launch. Maybe weíll have display units to fill up this ďComing Soon!Ē spot?
It should be noted that indirect retailers some times receive information that is subject to change, so before we get too excited, lets hold off and see if these dummy units or stock actually show up this weekend. After all, look at Samís Club who was all over this 8/4 date at one point and is now not expecting to see it until September. We also almost would have expected a pre-order period of some sort for a device this big and this isnít necessarily leaving room for one. Unless of course the phone gets announced tomorrow and the pre-order goes live Thursday night?
And of course there will be questions surrounding the validity of this document. Let me just say that you should feel free to question it. As someone who sees a lot of VZW info, Iíve not seen any ďindirectĒ documents that look like this, so there isnít much to compare it to. It should say itís instead of its and the registered trademark is something Iíve never seen used with a DROID device Ė you decide.
Lots of question marks and coulds in there. Just passing on info to help feed your Bionic addiction.
