Motorola DROID BIONIC to get Android 4.1 in Q2
Motorola DROID BIONIC, pictures were leaked of the Motorola DROID RAZR. And not terribly long after that, Motorola introduced the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX with the 3300mAh battery.
What brings all of this up is the word from Motorola that the Motorola DROID BIONIC will be updated to Android 4.1 some time in the second quarter of 2013. With Motorola DROID 4 owners now already using Google Now and taking advantage of the actionable notifications, this will be the next to last of the handsets promised to receive Android 4.1 to get the update. All that remains to be updated to Android 4.1 is the Motorola PHOTON Q 4G LTE on Sprint.

If I recall correctly, pics of the Razr were around at least a month before the Bionic went on sale, they just weren't calling it the Razr yet.
Anyway, I'm gonna pass up on tis update for a while after all the crazyness I've been hearing about on various Razr forums. My Bionic is still running well and 4.1 isn't worth losing that. Hopefully it'll be bug free at launch.

Great news for their users who will now experience JB4.1.2 and hopefully soon getting 4.2.1.

it's hardware, the Droid Bionic is powered by an OMAP4430 w/ 1GB of RAM, pretty much the exact same thing as the Droid Razr and the Galaxy Nexus, the Atrix and the Photon are powered by Nvidia Tegra II's and the only Tegra II device from ANYONE to have gotten updated to 4.1 was the GE Motorola XOOM. why don't you just go ahead and be done with Motorola already and quit complaining?

I no longer use this phone, but it's good that it's going to get JB! It was very reliable and worked fairly well and with out incident. Everyone with a Razr had issues with ICS, but by the time the Bionic got it, it worked just fine and had about zero issues! Hopefully this will be the same.
