Just when you thought you wanted the DROID Bionic, another rumor has cropped up. It’s another Motorola phone that’s currently being called the Motorola Dinara – seeing a pattern with mountain names here? It’s said be have a TI chip – we’d guess OMAP4 – 1GB of RAM, a 13 megapixel camera with a matching VGA camera on the front, an “HD” display that is bigger than the DROID Bionic’s (probably 4.3 inches) and an internal battery.

Early rumors suggest Verizon will be carrying it, but as we’ve seen with Sprint and AT&T carrying the Photon and the Atrix, that really wouldn’t mean a whole lot even if it turns out to be a DROID-branded device. It’s said to be here this winter, but we’re not sure which version of Android it’ll run – ice cream sandwich is going to be out later this year but it’s currently running Gingerbread, according to Droid-Life’s sources.

Sounds like a great phone, but we aren’t going to get too excited just yet. The Bionic was (and is) a great looking phone, but it’s been nearly 7 months since its announcement and it hasn’t launched yet. So what say you? Wait and see how this one pans out or grab the Bionic when Verizon finally decides to release it? [Droid-Life]
