Finally, the release date of the Droid Bionic has been confirmed. Verizon Wireless, on its Twitter page, announced the release date of Motorola Droid Bionic, saying that the new beast of Motorola Android phone will be unleashed on Sept. 8, as previously rumored by numerous sources. "As I have said,The Motorola Droid Bionic is confirmed to release on September 8th," tweeted @DroidBionic on Friday.

The Droid Bionicmarks Verizon's first 4G LTE phone powered by dual-core processor. Motorola Droid Bionic will come with several enhancements, including expanded features, functionality and an improved form factor. The latest photo leaks revealing Motorola Droid Bionic showed that the smartphone looked very similar to Motorola Droid X2, another powerful dual core smartphone without 4G support.

One of the several leaked images supporting the looks of Droid Bionic to that of Droid X2 showcased version 1.3.0 Webtop application support. It wasn't enough to make fans wait nine months for any specifics about the Motorola Droid Bionic. On Wednesday, Verizon launched an app for eager fans to participated in an "augmented reality" scavenger hunt, running Sept. 4-7, that gives participants a chance to win the Droid Bionic.

Verizon didn't stop there. Riling Bionic devotees to no end, Boing Boing blamed FedEx for delaying Verizon's delivery, and then Verizon for not verifying the code punched in. "So now, of course, all the other sites have done their bit and Boing Boing is being harangued on Twitter by Droid fans to get with the program. Sneaky, intelligent PR here," complained Boing Boing's Rob Beschizza.

The juiciest new details about the Droid Bioinic were posted on Wednesday by Droid-Life, which unearthed an alleged, detailed spec sheet (click right to enlarge) given to Verizon employees. Droid-Life also posted what looks like an internal Verizon product guide, saying the Droid Bionic will launch "to all channels" next Thursday, September 8; the same day that Android Central reported a couple weeks ago, along with a $299 price tag.

In a pair of DroidBionic commercials posted on the companies youtube channel, the date September 8 is flashed on the screen. The newly redesigned Bionic will be the first dual core LTE phone available. The Bionic was first announced at CES in January, alongside HTC’s Thunderbolt. 

Currently all three LTE phones on Verizon have a 4.3-inch screen, and single core processors, so maybe the 4.3-inch screen market would have been too cluttered if the Bionic came out earlier. The common gripe about all three LTE phones is the battery life, the LTE antenna is just too power hungry, so maybe Motorola delayed the launch to try and improve battery life.
