Verizon insider leaves poem that hints that the Motorola Droid Bionic is just weeks away
While the specs sound hot, let's get to the gentle words of the poem:
"When beer flows in the color of envy and the rainbows are all but empty and you bask in the Thunder so bold...But if it's another device that you seek to reach your peak, then you might have several weeks. For in the LTE a new device shall shine, and perhaps that is fine if dual cores you don't mind...For Steve Austin moves like a blur, Unless it's stock style you prefer...but it's calmness we shall seek, and shy away from the hype-beast. So those signing two-year choices, don't blame panda forces, but the unknown sources that raise your hopes so high...Cause at the end of the tweet a Sneaky Panda speaks and says YOU MAY WANT TO WAIT TO BUY"
O.K., so its not Poe but the poem does tell us that we could see the Motorola Droid Bionic launched a little earlier than expected. Of course, the HTC Thunderbolt, as Verizon's first 4G handset, is currently the Phone du jour for the carrier, but we're sure that there are quite a few Verizon customers waiting for the dual-core speed of Motorola's next Droid.

Here we go!!. These damn forums are gonna start rumors again just like they did with the Thunderbolt. Being that they were a whole month and three days off, and the Bionic isn't either slated until Q2, they have to have something to keep people on the edge of their seats. Next round of comments will be that the Bionic release date is being moved further ahead is because they want to sell more Thunderbolts. I guarantee you this will be the sequence of events. This is pretty standard operating procedures for the folks in all of these forums!

This guy has always been right about this stuff. In fact, back before the Thunderbolt was unveiled at CES, he said March 17th was the targeted date. No one believed him and look how it turned out. Trust him, if he says it's coming, its coming.

I bet they don't push the date back for the reasoning of selling more Thunderbolts. If you did see there are 2 different brands on each of these devices, I could see that if they were both HTC.

I'm trying to figure out why this would be considered early. Last time I checked Q2 starts on April 1st, or 15 days from today.

I remember the days when phones were announced in advance,
I knew then my paycheck didn't stand a chance.
Now phone info is so well hidden,
I only ask, are you kiddin'?
It's silly because it's just a phone,
We all want to know so just throw us a bone!
Let us know more about your devices,
So we can save money while you intice us.

once there was a reporter so eger and charming who told a story of something very alarming. the newest the fastest the best thing around, but the bolt weve been waiting for had just hit the ground. "dont buy this wait for something new" as the speculations started and the rumors grew too. "should i wait for this or get what ive been yearning" "this is obsolete" "this ones to boring" the sheep mumbled, they could talk all day, they gathered together and started to say " just tell us the $#@!ing date i dont feel like waiting another 3 months just to know 2 days before the phone comes out and then another rumor starts so i cant make up my mind of what to get."
lmao i can do this shit too

So while at VZW, buying my new Thunderbolt, I was told by the salesperson that they actually received training on the Thunderbolt 3 months ago. She was struggling to activate my phone. This phone has been delay for at least 2 months, so I'm not holding my breathe for the Bionic. BTW, I got my Thunderbolt for $230 on a 1 year contract!!!!

I wouldn't believe everything you read. There has been NO word, official or otherwise that mentions the Bionic. There are no trainings, no internal corporate promos, no official word, nor are there even substantials rumors, and believe me when I say that the rumor mill is ALWAYS in full effect here at the Big VZ Dub.
This is a good thing, because all these ridiculous "emergency out of the blue" expenses have pretty much emptied my account of non-discretionary monies. At least I have time to save up for it.

I'm going to try and wait it out for the Moto Droid 3 and just hope it has a front facing camera and is 4g LTE capable. I just love the physical slide-out keyboards so much.

Most rumors point to the Droid 3 not being an LTE device and may not have a front facing camera. It will still be a major overhaul, with a bigger screen (probably the 4" qHD from the Atrix), dual core and 5-row keyboard, but probably not 4G.
I get the impression the first gen LTE hardware is pretty bulky. All we saw at CES were jumbo size devices.

Kung Fu Panda 2 comes out may 26. With all the references to a panda, and a sneaky one at that, perhaps that is a way of slipping a date in.

I have waited so long the for Thunderbolt, I don't even want to go through the same frustration waiting on the Bionic. I have the old LG Voyager so I on the Thunderbolt like lightening.
