    I called verizon today a to report a black out in my area but some how we ended up talking about ICS for the droid bionic. he said the ICS would be pushed out at the end of feb cuz verzion was in the last stages of reviewing the ICS update before being pushed out to the populace. I called tier 2 tech at moto just to make sure an he confirmed that moto is waiting for approval before pushing out our long awaited soft served ice cream. So the question is should we believe that our long awaited day has come or is it just another all to common disappointment?

    I'm going to say fiction, but who knows. A lot of manufactures like SE and Huawei have ICS builds ready so maybe.

    I hope its not fiction cuz like u said those other manufactures have ICS builds but as we all know moto has a talent for disappointing us. plus instead of working on ICS they come out with 2 new phones an one of them u cant consider a new phone aka razr maxx. all they did was add an accessory to it. i cant believe they passed that off as a new phone but anyways i do hope this rumor is true

    It could be true. The original projections were for February 2012. Other devices have been shipped with it so we know it's a functioning package. Of course since I work in development at my company I know that deadlines are rarely met.

    So the question is if other companies are pushing out ICS updates like clock work. Then whats the hold up with moto cuz i have a friend with a HTC (dont know what model) an he received an ICS upfate 2 weeks ago an the phone is at least 4 months older than the bionic. What the heck

    According to the droid life article they cannot do math correctly. Also I wouldn't take half the things they say as solid statements. But they could be right, who knows. The fact is that a) don't believe a single thing that Verizon tells you and b) don't believe a projection that droid life makes. They both are biased by certain factors.

    I am sticking by my statements that it is coming in March. Plus blur ICS will probably look pretty similar to what we already have.

    I don't think that's correct. ICS has not been pushed to any device yet. The Rezound received a "leak", but it's not even a fully functional build yet.

    Current Phone Model:
    Droid Turbo
    I look forward to ICS simply because I want to play with it
    But I'm in no hurry
    Finally after .901 everything on my phone works rock solid
    I'm almost afraid to change anything for fear of messing it up

    I'm going to go with fiction too. When each someone calls Verizon there's a different answer.

    Here's one fact that you guys can count on: Verizon doesn't know the answers to your questions. They just know how to sell you a product and keep you interested in their brand. They always have some sort of motive to what they tell you.
