    Motorola's DROID BIONIC LTE smartphone, first announced at this year's International Consumer Electronics Show, will launch this summer with Verizon Wireless. Based on compelling feedback since the show, we are incorporating several enhancements to make this an even better consumer experience. This includes expanded features, functionality and an improved form factor. Motorola Mobility and Verizon Wireless are very excited about bringing the 'new' DROID BIONIC to market.

    I'm up for an upgrade on May 6th. I really want a dual core 4g phone but the Thunderbolt is going to be hard to pass up.

    I think it may be more accurate to say the targa sounds better than the etna. Who knows what the bionic will be.

    +1 Why should we ignore the release date on this, nothing i can see that points out that this is recent.

    lol....yea, that is something we wanna know. I dont get it. Sprint's 4G phones dont cost that much on contract. The EVO is probably still more than the EVO Shift, and the Shift came out later..

    As much as i want to see that phone and i had a whole thread about the cancellation, there is nothing official in the post and i added another quote from it:

    "...That removal though, is now complete and the only page left that even mentions the word “Bionic” is the one you are seeing above." (a page with a jan' 5th date on it)

    Don't get me wrong i am really interested in the phone just looking for something official to know if i should wait or get the g2x.
