iPhone 5 or Droid Bionic: Clash of the Titans

Two of the hottest and eagerly anticipated smartphones could clash when they both become available on the mobile sales market, with only a month between their respective release dates.

Apple is scheduled to sell its 5th-generation iPhone, or more commonly known iPhone 5 handset in September, this is according to an article by Reuters. This will mean that its release would be a quarter later than the date of the iPhone 4, when it was released last year.

Now the report by Reuters cites unnamed sources, and goes on to claim that the mass production of Apple’s iPhone 5 will start early next quarter (July/August), and that the new phone will look largely similar to the iPhone 4, so there will possibly be no complete redesign for this device.

There have been quite a few claims posted on the internet regarding the iPhone 5, and what it could come with, such as a new iOS version, faster processing power courtesy of iPad 2′s already-popular A5 chip and possibly a 12.6 megapixel camera. However, at present these are just rumours and speculations, and therefore, should only be taken at face value.

Something that has come out of the reported September launch of iPhone 5 is that it could clash with the expected summer release of Motorola’s Droid Bionic LTE smartphone (see email received by my colleague Mark from Motorola, regarding the delay and release of this smartphone). Unlike the iPhone 5, we are aware of what tech specs the Motorola Droid Bionic is bring with it — see our article on the First Look Video.

As indicated in the story by PopHerald, will some iPhone customers be swayed over to the Motorola Droid Bionic due to its expected month-ahead release date? In addition, when these two meet head to head on the market, which will be left standing? Please leave us your views below.
