Breaking: Verizon to Launch Both DROID BIONIC and iPhone 5 on June 9

Things are about to get even testier when it comes to the battle between good and evil.  Our friends at Verizon just shot over this document which appears to detail a dual-mega-launch of epic proportions.  How does a June 9th launch of both the DROID BIONIC and iPhone 5 sound?  As many of you know, June 9th falls on a Thursday, but not just any Thursday.  It’s the Thursday during the week of Apple’s WWDC conference which up until now, had been rumored to not include the launch of a new iPhone.  Well, that may no longer be the case.

You guys ready to see who will officially come out on top of this long heated rivalry?

Update: To those of you coming on to this post late, understand that it was an April Fools’ prank. Stop acting like children in the comments.

Cheers VZW tipster!

  • Whenever the release date is, it will be interesting to see who wins this one between these 2 phones. Does anyone now what’s supposed to be new with the iPhone 5 com pared to the iPhone 4?

  • Thetechmessenger

    Lol Just came in here and saw this and I almost lost it. Good joke Kellex

  • None

    lol @ telling your visitors aka the source of your income for this pathetic excuse of a blog to quit acting “childish.”

    there’s a difference between outright lying and playing a prank, dumb fucks

    ok seeing how it is no longer April Fools day this is kind of clogging up your home screen. I think it’s safe to take it down.

  • Lucky04

    LOL this was funny

    haha but thunderbolt had 3 april fools jokes before it was even april 1

  • Anyone else realize that the android crushes the **hone in all of the statistics shown?

  • Mehoff88

    Pretty gay considering the fact that Verizon said the Bionic would be here by the end of April and the fact that this an Android site not a gayphone site.

  • Mcchristolear

    wow…this is soooo fake!

  • Dankitydankdanks

    this is fake? bullshit! i was all hyped

  • Didn’t Steve Jobs say nobody would buy a phone with a screen size bigger than the iphone? Yet, the Droid X took in record sales…

    I thought the Droid Bionic had 16GB of onboard storage?

  • Coriolis

    Totally fake lol. However, I did enjoy it.

  • MattFallsHard

    DId anyone notice how it said stuff about learning how to stereotype to qucikly sell them?

    Oh look, another Apple/iPhone reference. That never gets old.

    idongle to mifi? seriously!! This has to be an april fools joke. I want it built in.

  • nimbus

    Well that explains why they downed their return time for new phones to a ridiculously small window. My girlfriend JUST got the iphone 4 a few weeks ago. She would have easily been able to return her phone and wait two months for this phone under the old timeframe for returns. She’s going to be piiiiiiiiiiiiissed. 🙁

  • aj96

    Tiered plans now coming??

  • can i buy geebeez from the app store?

  • Mratatum

    Yeah, nice April fools, the Verizon checkmark sholud be to the left of the V, not above the word Verizon #EPIC FAIL!

    • Check Verizon’s website before you go worrying about the severely overused term “epic fail.”

  • Birmingham

    It does kind of give us a better timetable though as you must consider that this was based on an actual release form. Notice that it says the bionic comes with Skype for front facing camera?

    We all know that it is still in delay so if they plan to release it with Skype then maye well see it later than soon.

    CRAP, I was all excited and started reading it to my wife letting her know she would have to now let go of her D1 when it hit me. Good joke but…bad joke.

  • Anonymous

    Best April Fool’s joke of the day. Nice work. On a similar note, I was kind of excited to have a launch date for the Bionic. I’m a school psychologist, so that week is my first week of summer break and my first thought was how I’d be able to spend the summer playing with my new toy. So now that it’s not true I’m a little sad.

  • Kellex, I kind of hate you for this… but I can’t stay mad at you. haha

    Yes, but, can either of them make phone calls?

  • I can’t wait to see those iPhone 4G MiFi dongles…I’m sure Apple will be charging at least $40 each…and they’ll probably come in an array of hip colors and make a neat clicking sound when it attaches to the iPhone. ; )

  • Mike

    But did anyone read in the ad where it says “The phone will not have 4G LTE support at launch, but will instead receive an upgrade in September via iDongle-to-4G MiFi”? Is this implying that it will have a 3G radio installed and get a “Dongle” to attach to the phone in September in order to use 4G?

    • Anonymous

      Yep, you’ll have to attach your dongle to get 4G. 😛

    Well done. And subtle. I thought it was legit until I read the grainy text of “bigger geebeez.” And then, I lol’d.

      Even although selecting winter moncler coats, perhaps collectively using moncler boots, do not forget- there does exist one specific popular idea to the wide variety of all equipments; they need to fulfill most with the sensible functions. The  moncler jackets for men are developed more than protecting you from the cold, but additionally it is eye-catching designs to display the other people the fabric, designs, and your figure. The fabric would after result during the moncler jackets is needed to resist weather conditions during the area as properly as the areas you take up residence. A incredibly superior wintertime moncler outlets must have the ability to tolerate solid really agitates and might preferably come to be water resistant.The following thing being aware of although picking out winter period coats for girls, males and boys and girls as well can be the pastime which you will need to operate with moncler doudounes jacket.
