    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.

    Do the expanded features include a $300 price tag?

    +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.

    You're going to be waiting for quite a bit. If you don't feel like waiting and are okay with being on T-Mobile go ahead and pick up a G2X. I've been hearing all positive impressions on the device.

    I agree with c_mack9, Why should we ignore the date? This makes the whole scrapped Bionic campaign seem planned to get some publicity. And it predates CES 2011.

    yeah what he said ^^^

    I'm riding the OGDroid train until it breaks down or something truly worthwhile comes out. I think Q3 & Q4 probably hold a lot of devices that we are waiting for. dancedroid

    ill hold out till summer with my og droid...ive held out this long....i still dont see what all the interest in the thunderbolt is i mean i know its the first 4g phone on verizon but its old tech its basically the evo which is how old now? i refuse to waste my refund and spend money on old technology i will wait for the bionic and pray it looks like the targa bc that phone looks like a hot piece of sex...and hoping on 1g ram...unlocked bootloader/vanilla android would be nice but those wont hold be back from getting it

    Amazing how many times i have seen this. Thats like comparing a Phenom II processor to an Athlon X2 and saying its pretty much the same.

    The thunderbolt has newer architecture in its processor, and 50% more ram, as well as increased storage.

    So those upgrades are basically nothing, but an extra core with less ram is the holy grail? I don't get the logic behind that.

    To each their own.
