It's a soak test for the Motorola DROID BIONIC

Owners of the Motorola DROID BIONIC have been waiting for what must seem like a long time to get the Android 4.0 update. The good news is that owners of the device have received email from Motorola asking if they want to take place in a soak test, presumably for Android 4.0. As we've mentioned more than a few times, a soak test is when a small number of handsets of a certain model, in this case the Motorola DROID BIONIC, get to test a new software update.

The advantage to doing this is that by keeping the number of handsets involved in the testing down to the bare minimum, if something goes wrong it limits the number of handsets that are bricked. To be eligible to participate in the soak test, you need to be a member of the Motorola Feedback network. If you do agree to take part in the soak test, you must keep everything confidential.

For Motorola DROID BIONIC owners, Android 4.0 is finally within reach. Considering the effort it took on Motorola's part to get ICS on this device, we wouldn't expect to see the Motorola DROID BIONIC have an easy time getting past Android 4.0.

now, now, this wait has been because of Verizon. ICS leaks have been available for this FOREVER and they kept right up with the leaks for the Razr.

I really like my Bionic. It's snappy on the UI, the screen size and clarity is good, and I think it's better than the RAZR line, as I can swap batteries on a long day. The OEM accessories are dirt-cheap, and it has been durable. The occasional data drops are a pain, and sometimes one app or another will become a massive battery hog, but I see complaints on forums about many phone models that experience these issues. I do look forward to the increased performance and additional features ICS will bring to my device, and think we've waited far too long for an update that was promised almost a year ago. ICS, and JB, ASAP, Moto... and maybe I'll consider another Droid next time.
