    Some of our Members that have the Motorola Droid Bionic received an intriguing looking email recently. Obviously it looks like a soak test for the Bionic's next update is likely coming. The question is: will this be just an incremental update with some bug fixes and feature enhancements, or will it be Ice Cream Sandwich? Fairly soon we may know. Here's the email in a quote,

    Updated: I accidentally had the old version Droid Bionic as the previous pic, and have since edited it to the correct version.

    I just got the email 12 minutes ago, I do hope that it is ICS.

    Not a chance, way too soon. It will take months and months for VZ to add and test their bloatware with ICS. Moto is focused on the remaining data drop issues. It will be the 901 update with some added VZ bloatware. That is my bet.

    That would be the bionic before it underwent serious design changes.

    I kind of wish we ended up with that phone. I liked how it looked

    Yes, but that design was based on the Tegra 2 chipset (XT865 Etna). We have a better chipset in our PowerVR based version.

    Ya I'm happy with our internals but the case on the old one was so much better. I don't like how similar ours looks to the Droid X.

    Some one will have to grab the file before they install it and share.

    We also got 1GB of RAM instead of 512.

    I actually like it, because it resembles my OG Droid in a way.
