    I realize that the official ICS has yet to hit but I've been reading a bit about Jelly Bean and was wondering, is there any reason why the Bionic can't run Jelly Bean? I, personally, see no reason why it couldn't but my knowledge of Android is admittedly low. Can anyone with some knowledge add some input?

    pretty sure it can run it .. but why would moto put effort into putting jelly bean on the bionic? google does not make money on android OS and look how long its taking them to get ICS.. smartphones are still new in they still have alot to be done to them.. plus everyone wants the next greatest thing..new android OS = no money....new phone with new android OS = mo money from a sucka

    I guess i'm being optimistic since i'm sure they already have a build that they could use. They would just have to move their focus to it instead of ICS. I'd wait one more month if it meant we'd get JB.

    Actually I've heard you can get a alpha build of keylime pie at www.fantasyland.com.

    The source code came out yesterday. There is no way they already have a working build. We'd likely be waiting a FEW more months if they were to abandon ICS and try to move directly to JB, minimum.

    Seriously?

    I didn't see that post, thanks for the link!

    I'm also grateful to be getting ICS...been running .232 for a few days now and it's great. What I probably should've posted was, since JB is more of an incremental update is it more likely that we'll see it?

    I'm sorry I couldn't resist. To be honest, I highly doubt we will get jellybean. It took them almost 9 months to get us ICS and as someone already stated there no money in it for them ( moto) to do so.

    Jelly Bean is not a new inneration of the os, it just an upgrade to ics. I think it would be up to verizon.
