Newly leaked Verizon Wireless documents show release dates for the Samsung Droid Charge and Motorola Droid Bionic of April 28 and May 12, and yesterday's Android spies showed an April 28 release date for the Droid Incredible 2, too.
These reports are conflicting because Verizon seldom releases two major smartphone products at the same time. One source suggested that the Droid Bionic's May 12 launch date was an old launch date because recent rumors suggest that the Droid Bionic has been delayed due to technical issues.
Since these documents are from anonymous sources, and Verizon often pushes later release dates depending on markets and testing, all we can be sure of is that Verizon is in charge and usually announces its latest smartphones on a Tuesday before the Thursday sale date.
Whenever the next generation of Droid smartphones is released, they surely will be as popular as other Verizon Wireless new releases.
