    Its rather funny how this thread isn't receiving much response since us bionic owners have been beaten down into submission concerning updates and waiting. Its like "oh updated timeline....whatever"

    The way I look at it; have it arrive now and have nearly 1-1/2 years of nothing coming or have it arrive later and have something to look forward to. When the OG Droid came out in November 2009, it didn't get Froyo until August 2010. My phone works fine now and I don't plan to root it. I can wait.

    Bionic has seen plenty of updates, and for many users they have been a significant improvement.

    Only Verizon phone that has ICS right now is the GNex, and it hasn't seen an update since it launched - 4.0.2 is essentially outdated.

    Go over to the RAZR forum, and you will see they have the same complaints as we do.

    In the time that it has been out, i'd say that the number of updates the Bionic has received is about average for a Motorola device.

    And once ICS comes out, people will be complaining about how Android 5.0 isn't coming fast enough. :icon_rolleyes:

    If the Bionic is getting ICS early Q3, there should be a leak in about a month and a half. The Bionic is the only one listed for early Q3; aside from the Droid Razr and Droid Razr Maxx, all Motorola devices that were listed for the ICS update were scheduled after the Bionic.

    I'd expect it before then. An "early Q3" release would at least put the release sometime in July (August would be mid-Q3, not early-Q3) - your estimate of a month and a half just to see a leak would put the leak halfway into July. Unless anything that leaks does so right before the official OTA. Of course, with Verizon being Verizon nothing is set in stone - ever.
