    Not sure who their source is but that's the first I have heard about the Bionic not coming out in September.

    I met Bobby Verizon (the eldest son of the Verizon family...so you know this is solid info) at a Verizon store the this morning. He was in doing surprise spot checks on employees. Anyway, he said they are releasing it to coincide with the whatever NASA replaces the space shuttle with. So there you go.

    Confirmed by who? The CEO of Motorola said it's coming in September.

    Their facts seem a bit off. Dinara was the Moto phone that was headed to AT&T I believe.. 4G LTE would be kinda funny at this point on that network, unless there is a set of ninjas over there throwing up LTE towers.

    It did have some nice rumored specs too (like a 13 MP camera)... so who knows.. DB should still touch down in September at a Verizon store near you.

    Last night I was visited by the ghost of cellphones past and he told me the Bionic has already been released. He said you simply need to go to Verizon and give them the proper code word. He was just about to tell me the code word when he was run over by the headless horseman. I guess I'll just have to wait a little longer

    EXACTLY - I have no respect for Gizmo; they report anything they hear and don't check out the sources or facts...and yes, Jasper, there is a Santa Claus!

    I stopped reading when it said...numerous delays...and...continually postponed ...

    Reliable insiders at HoFo already said it was going to AT&T. Those same reliable insiders said Sept for the Bionic release too.

    I think I will stick with the reliable insiders...

    I'd be extremely surprised if Motorola is building a super phone and not planning a multi-carrier release. Winston did note that one he saw was for AT&T... Droid Life has also received intel that its going to be on Verizon. What does it all mean? Its for sure going to be on AT&T and I'd be hella surprised if Moto didn't get in on the Multi carrier releases this year...

    Also the Bionic is hitting stores in September...GC seems to not be checking their sources...

    AT&T's LTE network is in the process of rolling out in 5 markets. They don't really have to throw up anything, because the enhanced backhaul for their hspa+ also serves LTE.

    Gizmocrunch is pretty much a comment aggregator. I wouldn't believe anything that is written on that website.

    They also steal reddit comments and post them as news.

    Did this article actually take comments straight from the /r/android thread on waiting for the Nexus Prime over the Bionic/SGS2? : Android

    I would say to trust the Verizon Roadmap that showed September 8th.

    Look at how well the BIonic is doing in the

    What the heck is up with an AC "employee" spamming the forums with this nonsense? Isn't this against forum rules?

    I don't know what is more funny - people voting for a phone as the "best Android device" when it isn't even out or people's overwhelmingly obvious bias.
