The Droid Bionic has been a long time coming. It was originally announced back in January at CES and it’s now September, but we’re willing to forgive the incredibly annoying wait for that dual-core LTE magic. Especially since it’s been all but officially confirmed that we’ll be seeing the Bionic on shelves on September 8.

To start, Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha said the phone will launch in September. That’s not super specific, and we know this handset is all about being fashionably late, so it’s understandable if you’re still not convinced. But there’s more.

A Verizon roadmap was leaked back in August that also verified that September 8 launch date, along with a Korean TV ad which didn’t necessarily show off the phone (at all), but did happen to flash a “September 8, 2011″ around the 21-second mark.

Even though the Droid Bionic will be one of the most powerful handsets on the market, nine months is a really long time to keep people excited. Thus, Verizon has launched an augmented reality app-based scavenger hunt giving peeps the chance to win a long-awaited Droid Bionic.

Six days, people. Six more days.
