Verizon Insider Hinting at Droid Bionic Release in "Several Weeks"

BlackmanX, a well known and trusted Verizon insider, is at it again.  This time he has taken to teasing the release of the Droid Bionic over the next few weeks.  His poem “Hypebeast Hangover” is a clever set of hints that reads like an unofficial announcement.  Read on through to see the poem and some of our observations.

When Beer flows in the color of envy and the rainbows are all but empty and you bask in the Thunder so bold…

But if it’s another device you seek to reach your Peak, then you may yet have several weeks.

For in the LiTE a new device shall shine, and perhaps that is fine if dual cores you don’t mind…

For Stevie Austin moves like a blur, Unless it stock style you prefer…

But its calmness we shall seek,

And shy away from the Hype-beast

So those signing two year choices,

don’t blame panda forces,

But the unknown sources that raise your hopes so high….

Cause at the end of the tweet a Sneaky Panda speaks and he says…

YOU MAY WANT TO WAIT TO BUY…

As many of you know Steve Austin was bionic in that he was the Six Million Dollar Man while the “moves like a blur” is an obvious reference to MOTOBLUR.  The “reach your Peak” has us thinking of Etna, the previous code name of the Bionic and the dual cores alludes to the twin processors.  Also, the “LiTE” couldn’t be more obvious in that it will be support the 4G LTE network, something we already knew.

So, with the phone originally rumored for a May release, are we now to expect the Droid Bionic as early as April?  We know there is a ton of Android on Verizon’s horizon and there is no need to spread things out.  Hit us with a relentless assault of killer devices, we won’t complain.
