April 5th which is a tuesday is my best guestimate. I don't think they will draw out this release and prolong it. People are chomping at the bit now.
"Verizon brought Motorola Mobility Chief Executive Sanjay Jha on stage to show two 4G devices, including the Droid Bionic smartphone and Xoom tablet, both of which run Google's Android software and have dual-core processors. The Bionic launches in February, but won't run on 4G until an update comes in the second quarter. The Xoom also launches in teh second quarter."
This was posted in today's (1/6) Seattle Times.
Seriously, February with a software update for 4G in Q2. That works for me, my market doesn't have 4G yet, but with any luck will later this year.
According to Verizon's website the only 4g phone they have listed is the Thunderbolt and they haven't set a release date for that yet, but I read somewhere it would be the first to be released and would be released in February. However during the Verizon press conference, when these phones were being shown, they said it would be a Q2 release for all of them.
There are two rules to being in SpecOps that the Master Chief in BUD/S taught me:
1. Be prepared cause Mr. Murphy is never far away.
2. Fight dirty. The honor is in why we fight, not how we fight.
