    If it's the OMAP 4430 as rumored then it will undoubtedly have a 1.0 GHz processor.

    It could be overclocked too. You never know. Maybe that's what's holding up the release.

    Sure sounds like 1GHZ, but honestly 1GHz or 1.2GHz really doesn't make any real difference. Clock speed of the CPU is not as important as other things in the real world, like that it is a Cortex A9 and has a dual channel memory controller. If it really bothers you I will sell you my OG Droid I have OC'd @ 1.3GHz, LOL.

    Motorola doesn't realy overclock or underclock. They just buy a bunch of SOC's that are "binned" in a certain range and set them to a certain point that will balance performance and power savings. I am fairly certain that the CPU's in the 4430 and 4460 are probably the same. My only concern is that we get the bootloader unlocked for custom kernels. TI seems to be very conservative with their ratings for chips. I bet we can be running these puppies at 2.0GHz per core. :)

    From the factory? No, but we will be able to overclock assuming the bootloaders are eventually unlocked. Since the 4460 is spec'd at 1.5GHz and (as has already been pointed out) they are likely the same exact CPUs (which makes me laugh when I hear people getting pissed about "only" having the 4430 in the Bionic), I'm pretty confident these things will be able to OC in the range of 1.7-2.0GHz.

    You never know guys. There must be a reason it's been delayed. I'm only thinking of things they could improve while the device is delayed.

    It wasn't delayed. It was just a rumor that it was coming out in August.

    September isn't a summer release. I don't care if the last day of summer is the 23, no one considers September "summer." If anything, they could have said "late summer" instead of just of just summer.

    Besides, now would be the perfect time to release it instead of waiting on more competition to appear from Samsung, Apple, (maybe) HTC.

    If you take a look at the FCC documents, there is a specific document called "battery door report". In that document it says that they tested the Bionic's processor all the way up to 5 GHz. Crazy!

    They could only get it up to 5GHz because the battery died right after LOL.
