    Perhaps Verizon’s most anticipated phones since CES 2011 has been the Motorola Droid Bionic. Yes it’s been delayed for a hardware upgrade, but that only makes us more intrigued. So when is it launching? According to this latest leak, the Droid Bionic will launch a month from now, on August 4th. As always, this has not been confirmed by Big Red or Motorola, but it’s worth noting in your calendars. Additionally, the Droid Bionic made its’ way to and through the FCC. Only thing we can do now is wait for the official announcement from Verizon & Motorola. Hopefully, the wait was worth it for those wanting this device.

    Finally we have a date! I agree, if this phone gets some dev love, it's going to be huge.

    What's gonna happen if the bootloader is locked?? Will all the hype have been worth it??

    I was dead set against getting another moto phone, but since finding this forums, my eyes have been opened. I'm patiently awaiting a bionic!!

    Could this be the LG Cosmos II to be released soon? LG Cosmos was released about a year ago... That is just what I learned from a quick search.

    If the phone is able to get a good dev community and is unlockable then this phone will be huge :)

    But if the bootloader and such is locked down completely, then it'll just be like every other phone... boring :p

    If I was a betting man I'd say there is a good chance the bootloader will be locked. Moto claims it's unlocking bootloaders at the end of the yr for its newer phones, but I i'm taking a wait and see approach on that.

    Based on how huge the Droid1 was for Motorola, they'd be kinda dimwitted to lock the Bionic...because it has the potential to be HUGE!!...

    Been patiently waiting for this phone. My D1 is almost useless as any alert makes it stay on and the battery dies in about an hour. August 4th or not, I'm in. Good to finally see some kind of release date though.

    Hey x, good to hear from you again Bro...hope your business is taking off...;)
    Let's hope not.... because I don't want to be the one labeled that for waiting and being disappointed. Even if it were locked though, I have a feeling it'll still be smokin' fast and stable regardless, and that's all we'd need besides theming it our flavor...;)
