As you may remember, our tipsters claimed that the model that was showed-off during CES 2011 (codenamed "Etna") will never see the light of day. However, that's not to say that Verizon won't launch a phone named "DROID BIONIC", as it is alleged that Big Red is firmly determined to use this brand, only that it will be a different device altogether - please, shift your attention to the Motorola "Targa" (codename).
Confirmation now comes from Motorola (quoted by WSJ) stating the launch of the Motorola DROID BIONIC will happen in the summer. A spokeswoman gives the following reason for this postponement:
"Based on compelling feedback since [Consumer Electronics Show in January], we are incorporating several enhancements to make this an even better consumer experience."
