Motorola Droid Bionic Release Date Delay: Verizon Problems (Update)
Is this the case of the RIP to the Motorola Droid Bionic with the latest news suggested it has been cancelled, or is a simple case of it has been delayed. This is where the confusion starts because we reported that its release date is in May.
We reported earlier that the Droid Bionic is set for release May 12, but out of nowhere it has also been said that it could be postponed in favour of the Targa. Getting a little confusing now so we thought we would look a little more into this.
If you visit Phone Arena they have two updates on their news article, one in a nutshell says that Droid Bionic has been delayed due to battery and performance problems, but their second update says that the handset is to be returned by testers because it will not be released now.
GottaBeMobile have reported that the Droid Bionic has been cancelled because there is compatibility issues with Verizon’s 4G Network and the problem lies with the dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 chipset overheating.
Has Motorola Droid Bionic been cancelled never to go on sale or has it simply been delayed until further notice?
If you have had any problems with your Verizon smartphone overheating please do let us know, it does not matter what mobile phone it is just as long as you let us know what make and model it is. Thanks
UPDATE: We had an email Statement from Motorola re: DROID BIONIC quoting:
Hi Mark — I saw that you reported on DROID BIONIC today, so wanted to be sure you had our official statement should you be interested in updating your story. Thanks!
Motorola Mobility delivered the original DROID in 2009, an award winning device and one of the most successful smartphones launched. The company followed with the DROID X, DROID 2 Global, and DROID PRO. We believe the DROID BIONIC will have those same award winning features and will be one of the best 4G LTE devices on the market.
Motorola’s DROID BIONIC LTE smartphone, first announced at this year’s International Consumer Electronics Show, will launch this summer with Verizon Wireless. Based on compelling feedback since the show, we are incorporating several enhancements to make this an even better consumer experience. This includes expanded features, functionality and an improved form factor. Motorola Mobility and Verizon Wireless are very excited about bringing the ‘new’ DROID BIONIC to market.
