Slow Droid Bionic Ice Cream Sandwich Update Frustrates Owners

The Motorola Droid Bionic Ice Cream Sandwich update release date, which was supposed to arrive in early Q3, remains a mystery at this point.

Motorola promised the update for sometime during the early part of the third quarter, though it never gave any sort of definition as to what it meant by early. Many Droid Bionic owners, judging by comments and email, interpreted that as meaning a release in the month of July.

Q3 makes up the months of July, August and September.

However, now that July has come and gone without any sort of an update, Droid Bionic owners waiting for Ice Cream Sandwich are confused and left to wonder about what exactly Motorola meant by early Q3.


The Droid Bionic ICS update is still slated for “early Q3.”

It’s possible that the company meant by August 15th, the exact middle of Q3, though they could have easily just have said mid-Q3. We have heard that the Droid Bionic update is on track for a possible release in the middle of August though Motorola and Verizon have stayed silent about any sort of progress.

We’ve also heard that the update should have been out by now, however, the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX ICS updates made sure Droid Bionic owners would have to wait.

Both of those updates were and still are plagued by a number of bugs.

If that’s true, it would have been nice of Motorola and Verizon to say something. Motorola’s Ice Cream Sandwich roll out page still lists the software as coming in early Q3, something that is now debatable.

While we had hoped that the word “early” would truly mean that the update would roll out “early” it now looks as if a mid-Q3 roll out is what Droid Bionic owners have to look forward to.

We’re digging for new information and we’ll let you know what we find.
