Droid Bionic launching on August 4th?

with one comment


Guys at AndroidCentral got the slide on Verizon’s next big Android launches and they give us a clearer picture of when we can expect those Droid handsets to make an impact. According to the slide, Droid 3 should launch in July 14th, which matches exactly with the general launch date rumored earlier. The previous leak also said that the device will be available on July 7th, a day after the end of unlimited data plans), for those upgrading, so we’ll see whether that sticks as well.

Also, as guys from AndroidCentral said earlier, LG Cosmos II and Samsung Convoy II should be available this August, although there’s no news on new Blackberrys on this slide.

But what is most interesting about the slide is that we finally got a clear date (which can be changed, given Motorola’s history of delaying this handset) on when the Droid Bionic, the handset with LTE and dual-core Tegra 2, a first for LTE phones, will launch. The handset will launch on the August 4th according to the slide, which means people who bought phones from Costco to lock in unlimited data plans can exchange their phones for Bionic, given the Costco’s generous 90-day return/exchange policy. While Tegra 2 falls short in some aspects, it’s head and shoulders above CPUs that the current crop of LTE phones have, which range from Hummingbird seen in last year’s Galaxy S phones to second-generation single-core Snapdragons. So it’s exciting to see the first dual-core, LTE phone hit the market, as dual-core handsets can take more advantage out of lightning fast speed of the LTE network. Now, hopefully the date sticks.
