Motorola Says ‘Q3’ for Droid Bionic Ice Cream Sandwich Update

Last week, we told you that a Motorola seemed to confirm the Droid Bionic Ice Cream Sandwich update for September. Well, it now appears that the company is singing that tune officially as the company is now telling Droid Bionic owners that the update will indeed be rolling out in Q3.

On Facebook, the company is publicly telling owners that the Droid Bionic that the update will be rolling out in the third quarter of this year which means September is the likely month for the Droid Bionic’s Ice Cream Sandwich roll out.

This of course differs from Motorola’s official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade page which listed the Droid Bionic’s Ice Cream Sandwich update as having an “early Q3” roll out, something that the company has yet to change.

Early Q3 has come and gone with the arrival of September.

Motorola is now saying Q3 for Droid Bionic ICS.

However, the company remains mum about any sort of specifics, even as that deadline has seemingly come and gone without the arrival of Android 4.0 for the aging Droid Bionic.

This comes shortly after we told you that at least one Motorola rep acknowledged that the Droid Bionic ICS update was still in its development phase and that it would be rolling out to owners, after testing, at some point in September.

That rep did not specify a specific date for the roll out either which again means that Droid Bionic owners might have to brave the entire month of September.

Motorola rolled out the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX ICS updates on the last day of the release window and it’s possible that the Droid Bionic’s ICS update may not roll out until the end of its new release window as well.


It’s our hope that that doesn’t happen and the Droid Bionic update is graced with Ice Cream Sandwich sometime in the early part of the month but at this point, the release date is up in the air.

The good news?

It appears that the update is still coming.
