Here is what he said: I also heard this. Well not an exact date but a rep for Verizon/friend said the middle of July, however, they were talking about pushing it sooner because of all the negative publicity for the Bionic and because they don't want Bionic sales to be effected if the D3 is highly successful. Which means they want more time in between the releases, hence the earlier D3 release and the Bionic is very close to being completed. Then he started telling me about the conspiracy that Motorola wanted to release a little before even news came out about an iphone 5 release date and that is what they were waiting for, upgrading the Bionic in the process. It made sense to me because companies have released "unfinished" phones before like the Thunderbolt but can easily be fixed via upgrading the software and not the hardware.
