Droid Bionic: Verizon gives Summer release date the green light

We know a lot of you have been patiently waiting for any sign of updates for the Motorola Droid Bionic, and now we finally have official confirmation that the handset is definitely on the way soon – sort of.

If you think you fall into the ‘I don’t care about the iPhone 5, i need the Droid Bionic badly!’ category, you’ll be delighted to hear that Verizon has now opened up a sign-up page for the Bionic, allowing users to leave their details and Verizon will reply back as soon as possible when the handset is officially available to buy.

We’re not sure about you, but seeing that 4G LTE logo alongside the Droid Bionic banner, complete with the ‘Coming This Summer’ tagline on Verizon’s page is mouthwatering stuff, although it’s a bit disappointing that Verizon still do not want to part with a solid month that the handset will be available in.

As we mentioned last week, one big stumbling block for consumers in relation to the Droid Bionic could be Verizon’s new tiered data plans in which the carrier will unfortunately be bringing an end to unlimited data plans. However, it’s not as bad as we first thought as it looks like Verizon will still offer unlimited data plans to those who have been using them in the past, as it’s just new Verizon customers who will not be able to enjoy unlimited data. It may sound harsh for sure, but it’s a deal sweetener for sure for those who are loyal Verizon customers.

On the other hand, new Verizon customers may feel that they are entitled to the same package as everyone else, so Verizon may end up losing a few customers to Sprint and T-Mobile in light of this. AT&T of course has already ditched their unlimited plans, so Verizon obviously are keen to follow suit as soon as possible.

Another handset which may tempt you away from the Droid Bionic, is the rumored Nexus 4G, which apparently packs the best hardware seen on an Android handset to date – we’re talking about a 1.5Ghz dual-core processor, Google Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0, 1GB of RAM and 1080p video recording amongst other things. However, we have no idea when this handset will release, with Google seemingly keen to keep it a secret for as long as possible.

So there we have it, the Droid Bionic will definitely be available this Summer, and you can leave your details with Verizon if you want to be one of the first people to be informed about official release details. Tell us, are you still planning to get the Droid Bionic?
