But bluefire, the Bionic cares about yooooou! (Hopefully someone will get the reference)
They have had that for like a week I think.
So I know I had stated before in a MDB228 thread that we should all just disregard his nonsense.. BUT.. I have been greatly aggravated by the fact that Bionic may be pushed back to late August or early September..
Lets just hope that the files stating that Verizon will be getting the devices on Aug 1 are real..
Anywho.. I was looking around and spotted this on the twitter account of the infamous MDB228
I know you wonder why I do this. I do this to prepare you, to enlighten you, to save you. Salvation is upon us all in just mere weeks.

Notice that it posted this on the 25th of July.. and the fact that its mentioning 'mere weeks' makes me think late Aug..due to the fact that no one person, specially an advanced computer like MDB228 would claim 'mere weeks' when Aug 4 is basically a week away.
Again this can all be based on nothing.. and just some kid having fun out of our irritation.. but if this MDB228 is legit.. then ....WTF MOTOROLA!?
With all the hype, rumors and speculation going on I don't know what to believe. But one thing I'm certain of, this is someone having a good time messing with people. This is fake.
Release date threads have been merged to this one (retitled to "official...") and made a sticky so it remains at the top of the thread list.
New threads on the subject will also be merged to this thread. Please post all release date info/speculation here so less merging will have to take place.
I've heard that when the moderator merges release date threads that we are within 3 years of the device finally coming out. It is almost here folks!!!!
For me, this is the one notable advantage iOS/iPhone has over Android. But man, iOS bores me to tears. I'm a very artistic/expressive person and half the fun of Android (for me) is being able to customize it in any way that I want. Granted, when my D1 was stock, it was just about as reliable as the iPhone. Maybe the key to having a 99% reliable Android is leaving it stock? I don't plan on rooting/ROM'ing my next Android device, so we'll see.
Of course, another advantage for iOS is that some of the apps are of higher quality but this is a non-issue for me because the apps that I happen to be interested in are just as good on Android as they are on iOS.
I can wait.... I have until September before I can upgrade mt D1.... hope it lasts that long.
I dont have an exact date but a buddy that works for Verizon went to a workshop this morning and was able to play with the Bionic. 4.3" screen, and everything else seems to be on point with the rumors. He said he wasnt given a date but he said really really soon, he also said that he knows about new phone release dates a few days prior. He said I will be the first one to know when he finds out so I will update if someone hasnt beat me to it.
Great Snivac you now got a ton of people now waiting to hear from you. Just ask him to tell you and tell us. We do not know him or will ever know him. Just spill the beans unless this is another joke people are playing. GEEZ!!!
He also said it is very smooth, transition between apps and other things are quick and flawless. This is all I know to this point. He is quite the phone critic so he wouldnt sugar coat it, so him talking about it in such high regard means something. Lets hope for August 4th, I dont know how much longer my OG Droid can hang on.
Well ask him for a date on release if he knows. If he will not tell you, but knows slip him some cash and say how about now!
I am so ready for this to come out. I have been struggling to keep my OG Droid alive... Power button doesnt work, laggy as hell, random re-boots, I am actually thinking of un-rooting it... Although I dont know if it would solve anything....
I cant wait any longer
Hey Bionic guys, if you haven't heard, the SGS2 is coming onto Verizon LTE.
Right. And so is the SGS3.
I think I'll keep my pet OG droid until Nexus Prime hits.
Hey Nancy, who so negative?
I know. I'm sorry. I'm bitter. Maybe this will cheer us all up!
DROID Bionic Poses for New Photo, More Than Likely Headed for “Early September” Launch - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog
It seems to make our decision a lot easier at least.
Rumor after rumor..... getting old quick.
Confirmed 4G on the SGSII? Screw the Bionic.
4g don't even matter to me,I just want one of the frigging things to come out already!
It isn't even about the 4G to me either. Motorola screwed around on launching this phone so much that I don't even want it anymore. The SGSII having 4G means it is a direct competitor with the Bionic.
So if Motorola released a defective phone, you wouldn't want it. And when they release a non-defective phone, you won't want it.
When it has been pushed back into oblivion multiple times (this phone was shown at CES), that makes me think there is something significantly wrong with it. I have my mind made up that I will purchase it if it releases on August 4th. Otherwise, I will keep my Incredible and wait for something better.
It was redesigned -- or more likely, a different design was brought forward to be released under the Bionic name -- so whatever was wrong with it presumably no longer is.
But I hear ya on the impatience, and I wouldn't be surprised if someone at Motorola lost their job over the long delay which is giving SGS2 a huge opening.
