Motorola’s Droid Bionic smartphone has been delayed long enough for Motorola to make some changes to the device according to the WSJ. The Bionic was originally set to hit the store shelves in Q2 of 2011 but that date has now been pushed. An exact launch date is unknown, but it is pegged for this summer.

Verizon Wireless will be the carrier of the smartphone. A Motorola spokeswoman said, “Based on compelling feedback since [Consumer Electronics Show in January], we are incorporating several enhancements to make this an even better consumer experience.” The smartphone is going to operate on the 4G network from Verizon Wireless.

Speculation was that the Bionic had been scrapped in favor of a different Motorola device. The device first surfaced at CES 2011. Exactly what changes are being made to the smartphone are unknown.
