Motorola DROID Bionic due in September, says CEO Sanjay Jha [UPDATED]Alex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
If you've been anticipating the arrival of the Motorola DROID Bionic since it debuted back in January, well, you've got a little bit more of a wait ahead of you. Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha just confirmed on the company's earnings call that the Bionic will be hitting Verizon in September. An exact date wasn't mentioned, although a recent report claimed that September 1st could be the day that it all goes down.
Although August 4th had been kicked around as a possible Bionic launch date in the past, more recent reports pegged the Bionic's arrival for sometime in September. Precisely when in September the Bionic will be launching remains to be seen, as does the device's pricing details, but those details should be outed sometime in the next few weeks. Now that the Bionic is nearly here, are you still excited about it or has the long wait driven you into the (metaphorical) arms of another smartphone?
UPDATE: Sanjay wasn't done dropping hints on new products after outing the Bionic's release date. The exec said that Motorola is planning to have a total of "at least" 5 LTE-enabled products out by the end of the year. Unsurprisingly, Jha didn't get into specifics, but he did say that Moto has another LTE phone and two LTE tablets up its sleeve. Could they all be destined for Verizon? Is Moto planning to release a device for AT&T's spiffy new LTE network, perhaps like this mysterious Atrix 4G successor? Did the chicken come before the egg or was it the other way around? All questions that we should learn the answer to over the next few months. (Except for maybe that last one.)
