    I looked everywhere on his Google + page, and he never said anything about "early Q4".
    Where did you see him say that?

    He didn't. Indirectly he said december 31st is unacceptable and the Bionic will receive ICS much much sooner.

    Yeah, "it will be way sooner" is the quote. And if you look at my post that he +1ed a few posts down I get the vibe he's just covering his a$$ for 10/1 being in Q4.

    You know, come to think of it - if it soaked next weekend, October 1st or 2nd WOULD be the earliest it would possibly push. You might be onto something here.

    What do we think the chances of that happening are?

    Given the very solid and stable condition of 246, I'd say the chances of it being released earlier are very good.
    They have almost, if not all the bugs worked out of it. They can't really do much more to make ICS better on
    the Bionic from what it seems like. So why delay it further? At this rate, I think the Bionic build of ICS is
    actually more solidly built than the Droid 4 or the Razr series. And how appropriate too.

    I'm holding out that they're going to get everybody from the time period up to JB as quickly as possible. Maybe we see an ICS in 2-3 weeks and then JB in another 2 months? Or maybe my glass is just half full!

    You gotta look at a couple of things. 1. A smart man always hedges, and Punit is probably the brightest crayon in a 1000 Km radius wherever he happens to be, background originally in quantum physics which led to IT after he got sucked into how their analyses actually got run, father of google plus, so one of the 5 shining stars of google. 2. He's definitely our friend, the bull geek of our herd at the moment so to speak (with respect to google, android, and motorola), and then literally in double digit hours from the time he said he was going to make things right, what appears to be GLOBAL motoogle/VZW chaos ensued.

    Exciting time to be a motoogle user.

    If you pick at the thread like we do over here, he's also pretty much promised the 'loader and rootability (when I and several others asked him about rooting the atrix 4G and RAZR M) for all.

    I'm gonna take an engineer's perspective, no half empty or half full, that glass is just twice as big as it needs to be. Well see.

    MOToogle: The revolution starts now.

    My gut is telling me that Verizon HATES the Bionic and is trying to purge them out of the system. The Bionic is vastly underutilized on the GB OS, and if it updates they have a TON of people owning a powerful phone on unlimited data.That said, it also has the ability to change its battery out when it dies (which the new Razrs can't) so you are looking at the potential of years being off contract.I know most folks upgrade as soon as they qualify, but I will hold off if my hardware can perform well.

    I 1000% agree with you.

    Verizon realized that the Bionic is powerful enough to get up to Jellybean and they don't want people getting such a major software update for free, because all they care about is making money. Motorola couldve chosen to side with Verizon and say, "Yeah, we're just gonna leave the Bionic at GB. We want people to buy our new phones now." But they didnt. As old as the Bionic is, Motorola actually cares about the happiness and satisfaction of its customers, and they're going to try and push the Bionic to its software limits.
