April Fool’s Joke: Verizon Will Launch Both Droid Bionic And iPhone 5 On June 9?

It appears that both the Motorola Droid Bionic and the Apple iPhone 5 will launch on the same day, June 9th. Verizon has a background of releasing phones on Thursdays, and it turns out that June 9th is in fact a Thursday. But it is also the week of Apple’s WWDC conference. There have been rumors recently that Apple would not be announcing or releasing a new phone at that conference, but it seems that may not happen anymore.
Update: I think it’s now pretty safe to say that this was an April Fools joke. The Droid Guy had some obvious points in his comment that I failed to see. He pointed out the fine print of this page, which talks about stereotypes and such, not something a big company would do. Also check out the iPhones specs, 16-32GB on-board ‘geebez’ for reals? How did I miss that one.
