Motorola DROID BIONIC to get Android 4.1 in Q2

Motorola DROID BIONIC to get Android 4.1 in Q2
Back at CES in 2011, eyes were focused on the Motorola DROID BIONIC with many Verizon customers already penciling the device in as their next handset. Then, inexplicably, Motorola pulled the handset and said it would be replaced by a model with a better form factor, but with the same name. This set off a long summer of rumors and sightings of the model which was finally launched on September 8th of that year.

What really ticked off Motorola fans and Verizon subscribers was that just a tad over a month after the launch of the revamped 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.
