Motorola Droid Bionic Release Nearer: FCC Clearance?

One of the handsets we’ve written most about over the last few months, along with the Samsung Galaxy S2 and the Apple iPhone 5, is the Motorola Droid Bionic. We know from response to our many articles that many of you are waiting for this Android smartphone to come to Verizon and have been keeping you informed about developments. Today we have heard the Droid Bionic may be closer to release as a device thought to be the Bionic has just cleared the FCC.

The saga of the Droid Bionic has been long and complicated as delays occurred to make ‘enhancements’ to the original device planned. Just in the last few days we’ve posted articles about the anticipation for the Droid Bionic and given some compelling reasons why it may be worth waiting for, given news of Verizon having the fastest network to make it even more worth the wait, a look at a sales showdown between the Droid Bionic and the Galaxy S2 and also details of a rumored release date for the Droid Bionic of July 28. Now it seems that release date could still be accurate.

Over on Android Central, Jerry Hildenbrand tells of a device that is unnamed which has just cleared the FCC. Hildenbrand though feels that this “could only be one thing,” the Droid Bionic. Information about the device is that it comes from Motorola and has EVDO and LTE 700MHz radios, Bluetooth, WiFi, b/g/n and also an inductive charging battery cover. The significant factor here is that photos and the user manual of the device are subject to a confidentiality agreement until August 7. It does seem very likely then that the long-awaited Motorola Droid Bionic will be out before August 7 and could even be on the rumored July 28 date.

Droid Life also reports on this FCC clearance for a mystery Motorola device and concurs with the previous report that it’s most likely to be the Motorola Droid Bionic at last. No other LTE Motorola devices are known about at present that could fit the bill and this looks to be the third revised edition of the Droid Bionic receiving final approval. Are you one of the many that have waited patiently (or impatiently) for the Droid Bionic? Does this latest news give you hope that the release is closer? Maybe it’s too late and you already opted for a different smartphone? Let us know by sending us your comments.

    This site is so lame. Old information and unconfirmed information at that. Send them a pic of a cow and say it is the bionic and they will post it.

    I actually hope this is the Samsung Galaxy S2 and not the Bionic.
