    All,

    I have seen a few folks sending or posting messages to Motorola and their forms concerning the ICS updates for the Motorola Droid Razr and Droid Razr Maxx.

    Is Ice Cream Sandwich Coming to the RAZR and RAZR MAXX Today? Motorola Says They will Share Details “Soon” – Droid Life

    It looks like Motorola is "at least" responding, albeit, giving a vague delivery date. Has anyone attempted doing so for our Droid Bionic in regards to getting ICS?

    If you look at Moto's twitter feed (either yesterday or the day before) they give the same stock answer in regards to the Bionic. So it IS going to get ICS, as they've stated before, we just don't know the timeline.

    Moto has never given a date for the roll-out because they don't control it. They did it one time and it backfired on them. They announced a roll out for the Original Droid and quickly found out Verizon controls when an update is ready. After that their stance has always been "soon." Save yourself the time of sending emails and tweets. All your going to get is "soon" When the roll out is underway they will say it's pushing to devices and not a moment before.

    Sure they will take a look at how stable ICS is on the RAZR and manage whatever chaos ensues, then make tweaks/updates/add more bloatware, then make a decision on the Bionic. Would seem to make sense.

    Agree with you Cereal Killer... just enjoy the summer and read the RAZR forum to get the occasional reality check :)

    Was just looking at the RAZR forum, sounds like a Gingerbread update is anticipated, nothing on ICS. However, thought you'd find this amusing regarding the ICS leak

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/showthread.php?p=2072884

    Sound familiar? Maybe it's a feature! :cool:

    They don't have it either; it was just an update to GB.

    Someone needs to develop a Customer Support app. It works like a Magic 8 Ball. You ask it a question and shake the phone. You'll get answers like "In a few weeks" "Next Quarter" and "Soon."

    Isn't supposed to be the end of the world according to the Mayan calendar?

    Seriously, according to https://forums.motorola.com/pages/00add97d6c both the Bionic and RAZR are still in the "Evaluation & Planning" stage with "Further details to follow." If you have an exact date, where did you get it from?

    You answered your own question. It just ain't going to happen. RAZR's will get one day of joy and the BIONIC nothing. I went through enough of them to know the BIONIC isn't what they intended it to be and haven't and will not show it any love as a result of it failing. They will come up with an excuse why it will be even longer ie the processor won't support ICS blur build or something.
