The frenzy around the Droid Bionic is so crazy that bloggers will post any photo that looks like it's a big Motorola smartphone and call it a Droid Bionic.
First off, there has never been a Droid smartphone of any kind without the Verizon logo clearly added to the casing of it. Yes, the Motorola Milestone 3 has almost the same specs as the Droid 3, but the Droid 3 is exclusive to Verizon and definitely will have Verizon branding.
In order to get traffic, bloggers will run a blurry, smudgy image and call it a Droid Bionic for what? It doesn't offer any new information. It doesn't help buyers choose a smartphone.
Let's review what we do know about the Droid Bionic.
Last week, Motorola posted to its Twitter account that the Droid Bionic would have a summer release date.
Here's what we do know about the Droid Bionic:

Entire translation from Chinese is available on our our Facebook page.
