    No this has been mentioned in other threads, it is a demo version sent to stores for demo phones, from what I have read it is not a version we will see. Right now we have .886, .893 weather your 5.7.893 or 5.5.893 and 5.8.894 is supposed to be next with ice cream sandwich, whenever moto and vzw decide we have suffered enough with the absolute $#it the bionic was sent with. I just started climbing the complaint chain at moto since VZW takes little to no responsibility for this phone. Running 5..7893 with theorys kin3tix rom, best the phone has ever been but still drops data more than my D1.

    Why would they make an awesome version and only put it in demo phones? That's dishonesty if you ask me.

    No one knows how "awesome" it is until they've had it in their hands for a few days. The rest is just hearsay.

    Whatever this build is, build number notwithstanding it is actually older than the recently pushed 5.5.893 version.

    5.9.991's baseband version and webtop version are quite a few builds behind 5.5.893's

    I have a theory, thinking about it. This is probably a special "demo" version of the original build, but with a version number set purposely high to prevent customers from fiddling around with the OTA update functionality and/or to get rid of the chances of a OTA update interrupting a customer's evaluation of the device. 5.9.991 is probably safely higher than they ever plan on going with the OS version number, so the display phone will never recieve an OTA alert.

    When a major OS update comes out such as ICS, they probably manually flash their demo phones with it.

    Yeah that's not what i'm saying. My point is, the devices in the store always seem so much smoother than when you buy it. And that's with people jacking with the device all day.

    Makes u wonder if it's all a bunch of marketing b.s. kinda like getting a burger at your local fast food joint. Funny how the one you buy doesn't look like the picture. I wouldnt b surprised. If the stores had special demo units that work perfectly just so they can sell phones that dont.

    Definitely not. In fact, the x2 in the store didn't even work when I tried it today. They have a lot of other corporate/demo software loaded on there that probably slows it down more than anything.
