Droid Bionic ICS update now available to everyone
posted by Scott H. / Oct 23, 2012, 9:33 AM
We saw the official soak test for the update earlier in the month, and it was just a couple of days ago that Verizon updated their official pages claiming a start date of October 19th. It doesn’t seem that they quite made that target, but now all should be well in Droid Bionic-land. For those who missed it last time below is the official summary of what is new, although you could also check out our Ice Cream Sandwich review if you are on a slow connection and need something to read while you download the update.

my friend its a business strategy. apple makes them and presents them in a way where people have to buy it eventually out of temptation and the coolness factor for android its simply this. give them 2 software updates after that dont give em any. and that is why people will go buy new droid phones because how bad the updates are. these are just simply facts. but then again you have custom roms available. so root and mod till you can.death before dishonor to a droid phone

My Bionic is extremely laggy when performing basic operations. The 3G/4G connection does not immediately enable when it originally boots. Toggling Airplane Mode does correct the problem, but it is still struggling to connect to the network. I am about to do a factory reset. I had to do the same thing when I upgraded to Gingerbread. Make sure you backup all your data first!

Talk about timely updates. Phone is a year old and was supposed to be "flagship"--model--1GHZ dual core, with 1 gig of RAM, with stock Gingerbread...and now here comes ICS with it's timely update schedule--phone is now discontinued on Verizon. Good job Verizon and Motorola--that is why I don't believe anything you say anymore with your update schedule...You all will always keep customer's chasing phones and updates

It hasn't been the flagship for nearly a year, what are you on about? Anyone who really cared flashed an ICS leak months ago, but I guess that doesn't figure into the equation when you just wanna complain.
