Motorola Droid Bionic not canceled, Verizon should launch it in the summer with new features

There have been a lot of rumors regarding Verizon’s Motorola Droid Bionic lately, including one that said the smartphone may have been canceled. Well, now we’re almost certain the handset is not cancelled.

The Wall Street Journal (subscription required) has it that the Droid Bionic is just delayed – hence it won’t be available next month, as some may have expected.

According to the publication, Moto pushed back the launch of the Bionic in order to “incorporate new features” into it. There’s no mention on what these features include, but let’s hope Android 2.3 Gingerbread will be among them.

A Motorola spokeswoman was quoted as saying:

“Based on compelling feedback since the show (CTIA 2011), we are incorporating several enhancements to make this an even better consumer experience.”

Since summer theoretically starts in June (in the Northern Hemisphere, of course), it looks like the Droid Bionic will be the last of Verizon’s four new LTE Android smartphones to hit the market. The HTC Thunderbolt is already out, the Samsung Droid Charge should be released this month, and the LG Revolution is likely going to be available in May.
