Verizon Wireless is finally showing signs that its getting ready to release the much-anticipated Droid Bionic. The Verizon Wireless shopping site now has a Droid Bionic teaser page with sign-up for notifications. An analyst's report suggests that the reason for the delay could have been Motorola's decision to make its own LTE chips for the Droid Bionic.
We checked on the Droid Does page, and it only highlights current Droids, including the Samsung Droid Charge, Droid Incredible 2, Droid X2 and Droid 3, which we compared with the Droid Bionic in a buying chart, yesterday. Verizon usually sets up notification email teaser pages about a few weeks to a month before the release date. Therefore, a release date of July 28 or August 4 may be correct.
Droid Landing on Twitter shows no new signs of promotions.
RBC Capital analyst Mark Sue reported that the Motorola's decision to develop its own silicon for its LTE chipsets has put it behind competitors that have LTE phones at Verizon.
Motorola's Droid Bionic was one of four smartphones that appeared in Verizon's 4G LTE showcase at the Consumer Electronics Show in January and is the only phone that hasn't been released, yet. Hopefully it will be released soon.
