Motorola has updated its upgrade news page, https://forums.motorola.com/pages/00add97d6c. According to this, we are still in line for JB. It is just a matter of time.
Glad to see them update the look of that page as well Looks a lot better now. They have the Droid Rzr and Maxxx as being in line for a Q1 release which wouldn't surprise me if the D4 and Bionic are in line for Q2 release. But who knows right now as there is no other information to go by maybe they'll surprise us with a Q1 release as well.

Oh my God, I NEED latest and greatest, I need the latest and greatest. It's just a stinkin' phone. Keep getting sucked up with upgrade craze, people. Holding out for JB to get the full potential out of this thing. It's still just a phone.
JB isn't going magically unlock the full potential of this phone. There is no remaining potential, it is about out of gas (CPU and memory). I agree that it is still very usable. I guess I trolled this Bionic thread by mentioning I will likely go Samsung.

ICS unlocked this phone's potential IMO. I got mine in May last year free with a contract. Came off a DROID 1, so even on Gingerbread this phone was a heck of an upgrade for me (although I did love my og DROID). Even though it's aging, I do believe it still holds its own right now with the heavy hitters. I won't have an upgrade til may next year or so, but getting jelly bean will hold me over til then. ICS fixed the data drops and gave me 26+ hours of heavy use on my extended battery now that I've solved my drainage issues, so I'm content to wait.

The data all you can eat buffet deal that goes away, does not concern me. Been on the share plan and 6gb on three phones works for us. If I used as much data as the data hogs do, I wouldn't get any work done or have time to get laid. Get off the porn sites. Conserve you data use.
My contract ends in October. I'll see what's available then and make the decision at that time.
As for the JB upgrade, it would certainly be nice to have a phone running the same OS version as my Nexus 7. is it an essential upgrade? No. But it shows that Motorola is committed to support. Since ICS, i do find that my Droid bionic is sometimes sluggish, but more often than not, it's due to some app that i recently installed to try out. After removing said app, I'm back to peppy.
I'm Jim Barr, and I love my Droid Bionic.
Being free from Apple's grip is like that feeling you had when you were first unplugged from the Matrix. Remember that? I do. It was so cool.
