Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha confirmed the timeline for the much anticipated and long delayed Verizon Droid Bionic
During Motorola’s quarterly earnings call yesterday, Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha suprisingly confirmed a September release of the long awaited and long delayed Motorola Droid Bionic handset.
First announced way back at CES, the Verizon-bound Droid Bionic was originally supposed to sport a 4-inch qHD screen, a 5-megapixel shooter, and 512MB of RAM. It was also supposed to include HDMI out, a Tegra 2 dual-core processor, and a super fast LTE radio. For whatever reason, however, the device was delayed and completely redesigned.
While the device seemingly disappeared, recent rumors suggested an August launch for the handset, so it's nice to hear Sanjay provide some clairty. Jha also confirmed during the meeting that the Bionic will come with the Webtop interface the Motorola Atrix has, as well as a "different processor." The different processor he is most likely referring to is the TI OMAP dual-core.
Overall, Motorola an Jha seemed rather confident that it can deliver on the Bionic. We can only keep our fingers crossed considering how long it took them to ready the device.
Anyone out there still waiting for a Droid Bionic? Or have you bought another phone and moved on?
