    [Rumor] Droid Bionic Delayed to September at Sam's Club; Twitter Still Suggests Aug 4


    We have some juicy bits of info regarding the hotly anticipated release of the Droid Bionic. The first is a rumor from a photo of a "Sam's Club" database pic. This pic, posted above, shows pushed back dates for several new smartphones, and one of them is the Droid Bionic. Here's the breakdown of the info on the pic:
    • Motorola Droid Bionic. "Pushed to September."
    • LG Thrill. "Late July."
    • HTC Status. "Late July."
    • Samsung Conquer. "Pushed to late August."
    • Motorola Photon 4G. "Pushed to late July."

    Now, obviously this is not happy news, however, there is also a Twitter account that appears to be a "Droid Landing" style advertising gimmick. Amongst the multitude of tweets from this account, one of them states,
    T-Minus 1,166,400
    This particular Tweet happened on the 22nd of July. If you extrapolate that out in seconds/minutes/hours/days, that puts the Bionic landing squarely on August 4th. Unfortunately, there is nothing to confirm that the Twitter account is actually legitimate or not. It could very well be a fake from an overzealous fan. (In fact, it is very likely that it is a fake because one of the Tweets, on July 18th states, "don't worry I will be along soon to save you...but you may not like my bootloader...". It is unlikely that Motorola would say that about their own product.)

    It's also entirely possible that both could still be true. We have seen big launches before that started out at Verizon and then went to other retailers later. It doesn't happen often, but it does happen. We'll keep you informed if we find out anything more concrete.
