Motorola pushes back to Droid Bionic

Motorola on Tuesday said it was pushing back the launch of the Droid Bionic to the summer. Missing a widely expected spring release, the company through a spokeswoman explained the dual-core, 4G Android hardware was going to see "several enhancements" that put the Verizon launch back. The improvements came after "compelling feedback" from the CES expo in January, Dow Jones was told.

The statement is odd as the timing comes three months after the show. It also follows after repeated claims from known insiders that the phone might be delayed or even cancelled due to technical problems, though Motorola has denied technical problems being at fault.

Many of those same contacts have said they expected the Bionic to be replaced entirely with the Targa, an even higher-end phone that would keep the LTE-based 4G but add an advanced 13-megapixel camera. Insiders had put it launching late in the year, but it could be moved up if it represented the real replacement.
