    A recent leak of a Verizon schedule device lineup for Costco suggests that the Samsung Droid Charge may be coming as soon as next Thursday, the 28th! This is pretty cool news if it turns out to be true. Also this leaked doc shows that the (now probably cancelled) Moto Droid Bionic, was due to come out on May 12th.

    This doesn't make sense as Verizon corp stores get exclusive rights on new phones for I think 60, but maybe 30, days when they first come out. Costco can't carry them until that time is up.

    Am I wrong?

    And yet another source saying the Bionic is still set to launch. So many rumors these days.

    While I consider sites such as Phandroid to be pretty credible and responsible, you do have to wonder how much these rumors are being propulgated just to drive site traffic.

    I mean, "the Bionic has been canceled, but another phone may be released as the Bionic". Well, that's pretty convenient, isn't it?
