    Those of y'all saying it isn't delayed are forgetting that this phone was originally supposed to be out 4 months ago originally.

    If you want to think that the fact that motorola ditching their original hardware they were calling the Bionic for another hardware platform they want to call the Bionic lets them off the hook, that's your business, but unless you have a Bionic in hand, then it is continuing to be delayed.

    So there's nothing wrong with the title of this thread.

    August 4th was never a release date... only speculation from sources that very possibly could have been made up for page hits or trolling.... only dates I've heard were 3rd quarter and summer...both of which would be satisfied with a September launch before the 23rd... so no delay, just a link for the bionics schedule release confirmation :-D

    I disagree. Moto washed their hands of the Enta and announced as such. The phone we are waiting on, the Targa, is perfectly on schedule.

    Aug 4th wasn't a release date, but it was supposed to be released just after CES.

    Delayed. Still.

    Like I said, whatever helps you sleep at night... Last I looked, Moto is selling it as the Bionic, not the Targa or the Etna or whatever...

    Still no Bionic = delayed.

    Why is this so hard to grasp?

    Because there is nothing there to grasp on to... the phone that was supposed to be released after CES does not exist. The phone I will be grasping in a little over a month will have been scheduled to be released at that time, if not later than that and moved up.

    while i tend to agree with Trusstopher, the debate is pretty much meaningless - the phone is coming in Sept. delayed or not, that's when it will be here.

    The fact it has been delayed so long affects my decision to spring for it or wait a few more months for something even more killer than the Bionic.

    As nice as the Bionic will be, it will be almost obsolete as soon as it hits the floor.

    I am sure you've heard of the phone lineup scheduled for release around the holidays, ya?
