    Default Is the bionic being delayed for the thunderbolt?

    Do you think the bionic is ready for release and they just have to hold it up because the thunderbolt was billed as being the "first"?? I am kind of a moto fan and have picked this as my next phone.. I hate waiting...

    It isn't ready. Final builds haven't even been sent to network testers.

    they did say Q2 for the bionic back when it was announced, and there is no reason to think it will miss that target

    Especially since the Bolt is giving them a case study of issues they may run into. I can bet that if the Bolt has had the issues that have been rumored, they're already working on them on the Bionic.

    Besides, we'll be seeing the Samsung before the Bionic.

    I'm not saying that you're wrong, but according to the people's troubleshooting sub-forum on , some people already have the DB.

    Although it was some time ago, most interpretations of the Panda poem seem to indicate a date around April 28. I have seen others report issues and maybe not until June. But, I'll probably wait until mid to late April and see what's there. Panda has been pretty accurate in the past.

    Just Remember there has not been any Official release date.... April 28th is just Speculation.. It can come out anytime during the 2nd Q. The latest is the end of June...

    It usually doesn't take long for one to learn of the Panda around here. He's a tester for Verizon and provides some very useful insight, tips, etc. Check hime out ... he's "black_man_x" on Twitter and "blackmannx" on AC.

    They don't have final builds. They don't exist yet outside of Motorola.

    I don't think that they're testers. It appears to be a scam site. Guys were on there talking about "Motorola Sense" (wtf?).

    You should read the comments. They live a totally different world where the Bionic has been out for 6 months and the Samsung Epic is better and on Verizon. lol.

    Back on topic. The Bionic is most likely still on track like the other devices. The only phones that would be delayed because of the Thunderbolt is the HTC Incredible 2 and HTC Merge. Should expect the Motorola Bionic mid-June.
    So many phones, so little time.

    That site appears to be part of a network of content factories.







    These sites lure visitors via Google and profit with ad dollars. Don't believe anything you read on there, they probably rip their content from other existing forums and just change the name of the device with a script.

    I wasn't talking about them, I was talking about BMX. He put up a tweet a week or so ago saying the Bionic was in the wild, but wasn't final builds. (either software or hardware)

    I read that in his earnings call at the end of January Sanjay Jha said the Bionic is on track for the planned release at the end of Q2.

    Well luckily it looks like if it IS being held back by the TB, then we have only until Thursday, before they have no excuses for releasing the Bionic.

    Keep in mind that the Bionic will be the last of the four to debut. So after the Bolt, we still have to see the Stealth and Revolution launch before the Bionic gets its turn.

    I think you will see the Bionic a lot sooner than June. BMX said after passover. Easter is April 24th, so I think you will see it that week or the week after.
