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.

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...

Alright.. what is the panda.. sorry I'm kind of late to the game here..

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.

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.

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

Edit: ...according to the people's gripes on the troubleshooting sub-forum...

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

HTC Evo 4G - HDMI Audio Only Capability?

Droid Bionic Forum - HDMI Audio Only Capability?

HTC Thunderbolt Forum - HDMI Audio Only Capability?

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

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)
