September 8 Rumored Launch of Motorola DROID Bionic Becoming More Real

The primary basis for the September 8 rumored launch date of the Motorola DROID Bionic is a leaked timetable allegedly straight from Verizon Wireless itself. With new leaked information concerning a recently updated Verizon Equipment Guide, that rumor looks more credible.

Droid Life was sent screenshots of pages from the Equipment Guide, said to be for Verizon’s internal use only. And, boy, there are several new juicy tidbits about the Motorola DROID Bionic there.

First, the document says that the Motorola DROID Bionic will be available in “all channels” when it launches on September 8. The option for “Direct Fulfillment” was marked “N/A” (not applicable), which probably suggests that no one will be able to preorder Verizon’s upcoming centerpiece Android superphone.

Second, we now have fairly reliable info about the DROID Bionic’s weight–158.8 grams (5.6 oz). That’s about as heavy as 158 one-dollar bills–which amount may not be enough to buy this powerful beast on contract. Compared to the Motorola DROID 3 (167.2 g, 5.9 oz) or the HTC Thunderbolt (176.6 g, 6.23 oz), the Motorola DROID Bionic is lighter. But, as far as weight is concerned, the Motorola DROID Bionic cannot beat the Samsung Galaxy S II’s weight of 116 g (4.09 oz).

Third, most of the Motorola DROID Bionic specs that have leaked here and there are affirmed by the Verizon document.

Fourth–and sadly–the screenshot’s bottom portion was cut, possibly leaving out other important specifications such as battery capacity. So, no dice for battery capacity for now. A lot of people are hoping for a longer-lasting battery with larger capacity. Although, leaked photos of the phone’s battery meter seem to show decent battery life.

One more week, and the Motorola DROID Bionic will takeĀ center stageĀ on Verizon Wireless. How’s your Bionic excitement level so far?
