    If Bionic came out in Q2 this year even with tegra2 and had reliable firmware, it could have been a big hit for Moto. They blew away that chance. Now it's facing the same timeframe as SGS2 for release.

    Tomorrow might be a good day of hope for us to hear about the Bionic. MMI is going to have an open call to talk about earnings so maybe we might hear about the Bionic release date or just about the phone in general. Just throwing that out there for ya

    Please don't get offended, but you people sometimes amaze me. This guy at UnwiredView is merely reposting what DroidLife posted and it clearly states that with the image pull....Droid Life is the only blog that has reported this...so there are no additional sources coming out yet that is confirming anything one way or another. Every blog just steals and reposts' what the other blogs post. Only a few bloggers really have credible sources...clearly this guy does not. So don't read to much in to it.

    Hey jikhead,

    Of course I wouldn't get offended. And yes I saw the "Droid Life" logo on the picture in the UnWiredView article. I just posted the link as I checked and didn't see where anyone previously had posted it.

    I know I enjoy reading anything and everything with regards to an upcoming phone. I also know that you you should take rumors for what they are.... rumors.

    I happen to think that many people who visit and read these forums, like reading about the rumors too. Also, with regard to new unreleased phones, if only verified factual information was posted on these forums, there would be very few posts indeed.

    So, just like I'm not offended by your post, I know you won't be offended by mine. So, I will leave you with this thought. It's a quote.

    "Isn't fun the best thing to have?" Quote by Arthur from the movie by the same name. (The Dudley Moore movie)

    I think these BOGO offers mean that nothing of significance will be dropping until 15 days after the offers have ended.

    Let us hope the Bionic is better than the game ;)

    Which, BTW is not as bad as some are saying.

    Once again any rumors of this being a global phone? As I take a few business trips to europe and the bahamas each year and not having that on my OG Dinc or OG DX has been wearing down on my work ability

    I travel to Europe and the Bahamas as well. Both are soul suckingly expensive with data roaming costs. Calls are not much better either, but at least you can control calls easier.

    The Bionic is probably not a world phone.

    It is very easy with an Android device to get slammed with hundreds of "how did that happen?!" dollars that VZW will not adjust. In fact, one of the first things VZW mentions when you activate and go to another country is to put the device in air-plane mode, turn off background data and only use when an emergency.

    Android data roaming out of country equals sadness.

    ^ the worst experience I ever had with Verizon is standing on the dock in Miami I streamed a baseball game and made a phone call while waiting for my sea-plane to arrive...when I got my bill it was 15 grand :eek: luckily after screaming and yelling at VZW after I got that bill it got taken care of, but that was still a big WTF moment for me..

    Now we've got some official reports....September.

    Motorola CEO: DROID Bionic Will Be In Stores in September - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog

    Not what most of us wanted to hear. Like what many have already said, I think Moto screwed the pooch on this phone and release, with it coming out sooo late in the year, and with additional phones like the GSII and maybe a HTC device...they will definitely lose some potential sales because of this/these phones, that they otherwise would've captured if released on time. Still, I will probably pick up the Bionic if there is no news of the SGSII having LTE and nothing solid on a new HTC device release date.

    What was the cause of the bill being so high?

    And with that, Motorola just lost $600 of my money. I'll be seeing some of you guys in the Samsung Function forums. :)

    Supposedly by standing on the edge of the dock where I was I was supposedly in international waters and therefore international roaming, it was a 5k phone call and the data was 7K the rest of that bill was the taxes that I got charged by Verizon...big big $$$$$

    Edit: just found this link online supposedly points to launch being in Sept.

    I'm done waiting for this phone. If the SG2 releases before mid August with Lte, i will pick one up while I wait for the Prime, if not I will stick with my TB until then.

    **** this. I seriously considered buying this phone on the 4th. I remember seeing information about this phone back when CES was going on. I was thinking that this would be the next big Droid device and it would be a nice upgrade from my OG Droid. I will wait for the Prime.

    Sanjay Jha: Motorola Droid Bionic Will Have September Release

    Disappointing, to say the least. I think there are tons of people who will take either the Bionic or the SGS2... whichever comes out first. I am one of them. If the SGS2 comes out before the Bionic that is going to cost Motorola a lot of customers.
