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!

    You had me there for a minute, but then I read the text on the image. Pretty funny.

    Though that iPhone 5 looks awesome.

    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. :(

    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.”

  • Gaydroidlife

    Fake new stories, classy. Stupid enough to take my readership elsewhere

  • Jimmyjive3

    F!!! I thought it was real and got my homes up. Why do people have to be faggots and put out something like this, just to get a rise out of people? So freaking annoying!

      its also annoying when people throw around slurs like its part of their every day language…

    April Fools, I hope. Otherwise Verizon just got a whole lot hipper with that profile demographic at the bottom. :)

  • Thevillagecat

    In case any of you missed it…..READ THE BOTTOM PARAGRAPH!!!!!!!!

    very funny…..April Fools

  • 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.

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

  • http://twitter.com/bipolarbear187 Robert Benson

    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. ; )

  • Anonymous

    Haha…stereotyping guide…that’s the best part. +1 Kellex. Better than last year when you tried to tell us your phone got bricked from the OTA update that was rolling out.
