But the real Droid Bionic is coming, probably in September.
It was enough to raise the collective pulse of the tech blogosphere: A tweet, apparently from an official Motorola Twitter feed, announcing the imminent arrival of the Droid Bionic. "On September 8th 2011, the Motorola Droid Bionic will be in your hands," read one message published earlier this month. "Once the Motorola Droid Bionic is in your hands, you will then know that the wait was worth it," read another.
The Twitter account, @droidbionic, certainly looked real. Witness the snazzy Droid eye graphics, the over 2,000 followers, and the link to the online Verizon store. But according to Motorola reps, the feed is a fake, one possibly started by a particularly committed Motorola fan, or maybe an employee of one of the hundreds of Verizon stores nationwide. "This is not an official Twitter feed for Motorola," Motorola spokeswoman Danielle McNally told PC World.
