There are now two camps for the launch date of the Motorola Droid Bionic, a device widely believed to be Verizon’s flagship 4G LTE smartphone. One camp seems to think that the device will be launching sometime in September, while a second camp optimistically believes that the Droid Bionic will land in early August. The latest leak suggests that the qHD-enabled dual-core 4G LTE smartphone will in fact arrive for consumer purchase by August 4th.
A leaked internal document posted by Droid-Life suggests that stores will begin receiving marketing and promotional material by the end of July and those retail outlets will begin to receive inventory of the smartphone on August 1st. If true, Verizon could be launching the Droid Bionic on Thursday, August 4th, in time for the weekend.
In fact, one particular Verizon store is already making
room for the Droid Bionic on its display shelf.
Whether the Droid Bionic launches in August or September, consumers will have a number of new smartphones to look for around this late summer and early fall period. For one, the competing Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone will be coming soon and Apple is expected to release an update to its iPhone smartphone as well. The Droid Bionic, which would have been a killer 4G LTE smartphone with some of the most advanced specs a few months ago may be facing an even more crowded market with even stiffer competition when it launches in either August, as this latest leaked document has us believing, or in September according to prior rumors.
