Now that the HTC Thunderbolt, Samsung Droid Charge, and the LG Revolution have all been released on Verizon Wireless’ 4G/LTE network that leaves just one phone left. Out of the quadruple play of Android 4G/LTE devices announced at CES in January only one remains and that is the Motorola Droid Bionic.
A few months ago rumors started popping up all over the internet, suggesting that the Motorola Droid Bionic was either scrapped or merged with another piece of hardware and as such, would release later in the summer.

We’re not sure exactly what Motorola has done but the latest reports are they’ve scrapped the NVIDIA Tegra 2 Processor and gone with Texas Instrument’s OMAP4. The Texas Instruments OMAP 4 is the same processor that is in the LG Optimus 3D that will come to AT&T and possibly T-Mobile later this summer.
According to these benchmark results posted over at TFTS, the Motorola Droid Bionic was tested using what looks to be a Texas Instruments OMAP processor. You may recall that the OMAP processor made it’s big entrance to Android via the original Motorola Droid.
Other reported spec modifications are a 960×540 qHD display and Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread, which is a welcome change being that there are still plenty of devices coming out with Android 2.2
There is no official release date from Motorola in regards to the Droid Bionic, however it was officially announced by both Motorola and Verizon Wireless back in January at CES.
