    Well, with all the talk about the Droid Bionic Leaked pictures, I thought I would contact them about the bionic and when it could be released and here is how my conversation went with them.

    Semi Official Release date for Motorola Droid Bionic | The iDoctor

    For now, the "official" release date is SUMMER.

    i know really... well im guessing, if they are willing to tell a random consumer and its a reply from a lower level rep, than it must be near.

    They are actually telling their employees about this :)

    If they've been saying it since they took it off then I don't see why unless they are going to change the dates like blizzard with diablo3

    Plus the way I see it by the time most people are able to upgrade there will be a better phone down the road

    Oh. I didnt know they really gave us a releaae time period once they took the phone off. It just seemed like they took it off without saying anything.

    Anyways, i may just jump on the iphone 4s if it comes out.

    Well I was thinking about go to an Iphone since I've really had a great time messing with my jailbroken ipod and all the cool things but idk if I could commit to an iphone. Not saying its not a good device or anything like that but I really like the ability to flash ROMs and really personalize my phone where as iphones its just really messing with animation stuff and emulators thats pretty much it
    I don't really care about 4g because I read an article on yahoo saying that no companies offer true 4g. they said that they are actually no where near it they are just a little bit above 3g so I'm not too worried about it
    And I think its going to be called the 4gs? Like how it went from 3 to 3gs but I could be wrong

    Yes, no companies offer true 4g. According to wikipedia's definition true 4g will have up 1gbps bandwidth. However Verizon is as close to 4g as anyone has, with their network consistantly delivering 8-15 mbps which is about 4-5x as fast as 3g and faster than a lot of wired broadband connections.

    Actually that's not true. The definition of 4G has changed since then. I don't know why people still haven't gotten the memo but Verizon's LTE network is now considered 4G.

    Not to be an ass but it seems like to me you are trying to get traffic to your site, everyone knows it is supposed to come out in the summer, very old news. The new news is that if everything goes well it might even be in mid July, But i personally think it will be early/mid august, but we can hope.

    Anyways, very old news, misleading title for a spam/self promotion.

    True story. Everyone around here has known that "summer" is the targeted release for quite some time. And there's already a thread about the release date on the first page of this forum anyway: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/motorola-droid-bionic/152414-release-date.html

    Even if this is more than trying to drive traffic to the site, there's no need for another release date thread when one (that wasn't even buried) already existed.

    He is. They changed it to include all of the technologies that carriers are currently calling "4G."
