    Honestly, I could type that up in Word and take a picture of my monitor.

    But, there is enough cynicism in the world and I need a new phone, so here's hoping it's real.

    Looks legit to enough to me. Could be wishful thinking on my part, but I really want to see this Aug 4th date be a reality.

    Even more so now that I know LTE is coming to Omaha on the 18th.

    I cant get to that file from work...

    edit:
    Looked at it from my phone. Can't tell. If its an internal VZW email/intranet posting than someone else should be able to confirm it is real. If no one confirms, its fake.

    Read the last paragraph. Retail stores should start receiving on 7/29....retail stores should be receiving by 8/1/.... Unfortunately I say fake.

    EDIT:

    Apparently, I can't read well enough. Thanks to those who pointed out the display/live model text.

    I noticed this as well. Maybe it means stores will start to receive them on 7/29 and will all should have then by 8/1?

    The bold font stating "Get ready for the Droid Bionic by Motorola! It's coming in August!" seems to be phrased in a way that I can't really take seriously. Given, I know nothing about how Motorola addresses their phones internally, it seems written in a way to induce excitement from consumers. Hard to tell either way, though.

    A very valid point.

    But it is talking about two different things...display models and devices so how does that debunk this?

    it says display models (i.e. the ones everybody plays with on display) on 7/29 and retail units (i.e. the ones in boxes to sell) 8/1

    I don't know about Moto or Verizon but I worked for a large national electronics retailer not too long ago and a lot of our internal stuff was written like that. It is designed to hype the employees so they can be as excited if not more so than the consumer.

    So who's staying up on 7/28 to see if there's a preorder online?

    The way I read that is display models 7/29 and devices for sale on 8/1.

    It is most likely fake. We need to use the 2 week rule. They want to do pre-orders for this phone, so the August 4th is way too soon.

    Most big phone releases have a 2 week pre-order time frame with Verizon.

    No because the Droid 3 could be ordered online the 7th and in stores the 14th. That's only one week.

    It's real. Definitely real. Stop being so skeptical people. Why is it that Kellex can say he has a source that says 9/1 but doesn't give anything to back it up and everyone gets all upset abut more delays, but when someone shows something that says its coming sooner, everyone jumps on the "its fake" bandwagon. I'm gonna believe its real until someone proves its not.

    Trust me, I WANT it to be real. But with everything we have had so far, I do not want to put too much into it. Can only hold out for so long. I don't know how but I seem to keep pulling my OG Droid back from the grave (2 times no display, 3/4 times buttons not functioning, many times unresponsive LCD, etc...)

    If this is real, this is really gonna throw a wrench into my thinking. Not even an hour ago I was saying I was gonna forget about the Bionic since it was releasing in September and just wait for the Nexus Prime. Now if it releases in two weeks, I'm going to have to make a tough decision.
