We have heard that there is a possibility that the long-awaited Motorola Droid Bionic Ice Cream Sandwich update could roll out as soon as next week.
A source has informed us that while a release date has not yet been set in stone, a release date is supposed to emerge internally in the near future, possibly at the beginning of next week. Our source says that there is a possibility that the update could be rolled out next week but that if it does, it might come with many of the same bugs that have afflicted the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX since they were updated with Ice Cream Sandwich.
Remember, Motorola promised the Droid Bionic update for early Q3 and thus far, we have not seen anything leaving owners to wonder exactly what Motorola meant by early Q3. It’s possible that it meant before August 15th, which just so happens to arrive next week.
More likely though, the buggy updates that afflicted the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX made Motorola and Verizon pause a bit with the Droid Bionic ICS update..
That being said, it looks like Motorola and Verizon still intend on rolling out the Droid Bionic Ice Cream Sandwich update in August, they just want to make sure that the update isn’t as buggy as the Droid RAZR ICS roll outs.
Last we heard, the Droid Bionic Ice Cream Sandwich update was still planned for an August roll out so again, all signs are pointing to the software coming this month and not in September, the last month in Q3.
Generally, there is a soak test that goes out before major Android updates, and we expect the same to happen with the Droid Bionic.
From the sound of it, Motorola seems to be under the gun again in terms of hitting its promised roll out window. However, the delayed route that HTC took with the HTC Rezound ICS update, it appears as though Motorola is working hard to stick to that “early Q3” roll out.
We should know more specifics next week but for now, assume that the update is coming out this month.
