I'm almost certain it will be $199 in September, they're probably aware of the fact that "phone season" is basically coming up right after it's release.
Going to be exciting seeing all the big names come out with huge phones this holiday season.

The simple, non-excuse story goes like this... just before the holidays in 2010, there was rumors of a kick-ass phone called The Bionic. This supposedly kick-ass phone was unveiled to the public in January 2011. When the public said "Whut?? That sucks!! It's more like kiss-my-ass than kick-ass!", Motorola then said, ok, we are going to make it better, but it will take longer. And then after almost a year after it first became rumored there was a phone called The Bionic (and just a couple months before it was actually unveiled to the public!), Motorola is finally going to release a phone some time in September called what again? Oh yea, The Bionic.
Haha! It's still the Bionic... the still delayed Bionic. no matter what code name you prefer to call it. When you go to buy it, you're not gonna ask for a Targa, those Verizon reps will look at you like you're drunk!! No, you're gonna ask for a BIONIC.
And if you can't accept this story line for what it is, then... well, party on in your dream world.

Well when the CEO of Motorola Mobility says they are not releasing the Bionic when they originally wanted to because they want make it a "better user experience", then you cannot argue that it isn't a delay.
Whether it's the 2nd delay or the 3rd delay is pretty irrelevant... at this time, I still don't have a Bionic in hand like I thought I would 6 months ago. The "why" is just academic, but it doesn't help put a Bionic in my hand.
The Targa's never actually been delayed, they've just taken forever to release it, which is no different than delaying it 10 times. As it most likely ends up resulting in the same problem of being obsolete.
