Back at CES 2011, Motorola announced the Atrix 4G and the Droid Bionic. While the Atrix 4G is already available to the general consumer, the Droid Bionic was expected to be released sometime in Q2 of 2011.
The Droid Bionic is the first dual-core 4G LTE phone headed to Verizon’s network. However, there is a twist in the tale. At the company’s Q1 earning call, Motorola’s CEO Sanjay Jha told the folks over at Droid-Life that the Droid Bionic launch, as well the XOOM’s 4G LTE update has been delayed.
Instead of the original Droid Bionic, Motorola will now release a new improved and better spec’d Bionic in Q3,2011 .
The XOOM 4G LTE update has been delayed because of Verizon’s 4G LTE network. It looks like the carrier wants to beef up its network, before the XOOM gets 4G LTE support.
For the people who were worried about the low sales figure of the XOOM, the company managed to sell more than 250,000 units.
Keeping in mind that the XOOM launched in the last week of February, and is still not available all over the world, 250k units is not bad at all!
