Motorola Droid Bionic Won’t Get Ice Cream Sandwich Until Q3

Motorola has updated its Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade page and it’s bad news for Motorola Droid Bionic owners.

The manufacturer has updated the timeline for its devices and while this is more confirmation that the Droid Bionic will be getting Android 4.0, it’s going to be a long wait for owners.

Motorola says that the device will be getting the upgrade at some point during the months of Q3 of 2012 which leaves Droid Bionic owners facing a large release window encompassing three months.

Droid Bionic Won't Get Ice Cream Sandwich Until Q3At the earliest, Droid Bionic owners will see the update roll out in July. However, Q3 also includes both August and September so it’s possible that owners could be waiting until September 30th to see Ice Cream Sandwich.


Obviously, this won’t be music to the ears of Droid Bionic owners who were hoping for a swift update to Google’s latest operating system.

The news comes shortly after we told Droid Bionic owners to expect a long wait for the upgrade due to the fact that an Ice Cream Sandwich build has not yet been leaked out to the public.

Leaked updates generally mean that the update is, at the very least, in internal testing, and unfortunately a piece of software has not yet leaked out for Verizon’s first dual-core 4G LTE phone.

Droid Bionic owners aren’t alone either. The Motorola Droid 4 also won’t see the Android 4.0 update until Q3 while newer devices like the Motorola Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX will both get the update sometime in the next month and a half.

So, now that you know it won’t be coming until Q3, how do you feel Droid Bionic owners?
