After six… Wait, let’s make that seven months of uncertainty, we might finally have something solid to work with. Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha said in an interview with CNET that the Droid Bionic will land in September. Just so we’re clear, that’s nine months after the phone was announced at CES, five months after rumors circulated of its cancellation, and four months after Motorola promised it would arrive this summer via tweet.

In other words, this thing better pack one helluva punch. And from the looks of its specs, that’s just what it’ll do. The Droid Bionic runs Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread on top of a dual-core TI OMAP 4430 1GHz processor, with a stellar 4.3-inch qHD touchscreen display with 960 x 540 pixels of resolution. Oh, and the 8-megapixel LED flash-equipped rear-camera shouldn’t hurt either.

It’s worth noting that, as most of us already know, the iPhone 5 should launch in September. The fact that Motorola feels comfortable launching the Bionic alongside one of the best selling smartphone lines in history says quite a bit about just how sweet this Android handset could be. Now it’s all about how patient we can be.

Hey September: get here now!
