    Here it is folks. The news you have all been wanting. THE RELEASE DATE FOR THE DROID BIONIC. From this leaked verizon roadmap, we can clearly see that the Bionic will be released on September 8. I'm sure this will finally calm some people down.

    [Update]: We thought we would point out some other interesting stuff in Malvado's great story, that might not have been immediately obvious at first. The Samsung Stratosphere is also showing a September 8th release date, and many folks in the industry are speculating that the Stratosphere is Verizon's version of the Samsung Galaxy SII phone. Additionally, the leaked pic above shows that the Stratosphere will be a 4G phone, so if it turns out to be the SGS2, it will make choosing between the Bionic and the SGS2 variant even harder. Incidentally, here's a complete breakdown of the roadmap from a BGR take on the article.
    • September 8th: Samsung Stratosphere (presumably Verizon’s Galaxy S II) — 4G LTE, Android 2.3 Gingerbread
    • September 8th: Motorola DROID BIONIC
    • September 8th: BlackBerry Curve 9370 — 4G LTE
    • September 8th: 4G Motorola XOOM
    • September 29th: Samsung Illusion — Android 2.3 Gingerbread
    • September 29th: HTC Bliss — Android 2.3 Gingerbread
    • October 5th: HTC Vigor — replaces the HTC Thunderbolt
    • October 20th: LG Revolution 2 — replaces the LG Revolution
    • November: Galaxy Tab P8 — 4G LTE

    I'm sure folks will be equally interested in the October 8 release date of the Vigor. :)

    I'm having the hardest time to figure out what the stratosphere is or what hardware is in it.

    What's interesting is that the Bionic got upgraded to a level one launch. Anyone who works for Verizon care to explain? Does this mean it's going to get a lot of advertising?

    I think that is just telling them that it is their flagship device since three phones are coming out that day. If that is the Galaxy SII then looks like I will have to wait a couple days before making a tough decision, watch/read reviews. Hopefully there will be more news about it in a couple days, it is kind of weird that there is virtually no news about it and it is almost a month away from release.

    Stratoshpere has to be SII, It would only make sense as it would be inline with verizon supposedly getting it first. Though I wonder if it was not supposed to be out earlier and verizon forced it back to coincide with the bionic launch as a favor to Moto. That way San jay or whatever his name is does not look like too much of an idiot. More signs point to it being SII than not.
