    With the release of ICS for the RAZR imminent (most likely next week) has anyone heard anything about the Bionic?

    It's the latest version of the OS, and apps written for the Android 4.0 SDK will not even run on earlier versions. Right now might not be an issue, but is already a problem with apps such as Google Chrome beta.

    It's total BS if we get left behind on the outdated OS, and if the Bionic doesn't see a timely release of ICS after the Razr, mine might find itself smashed into a zillion pieces; packed into a padded envelope, and mailed to the CEO of Motorola's mobile device devision with a scathing note about how I feel about their company.

    They still got your money though. :p

    Seriously though the new apps only being for ICS is what I find most annoying about this new release of Android in particular. Especially since they are some pretty hefty app enhancements. Who wants to guess that Google Assistant will be ICS and above only.

    ^^^^^^^^^^ Yeah, well I was actually joking about smashing it and mailing it to Motorola, although if I had enough money to do things like that it would be funny.

    I'm not 100% sure we won't be seeing ICS somewhere around the same timeframe, though. Maybe they're using the Razr owners as the guinea pigs this time. If their soak test is successful, maybe we'll get invites next week.

    Despite Motorola's Software Update posting, it appears that ICS development and implementation is way ahead of schedule. Both the Razr and Bionic have been in Phase 1 - Evaluation and Planning. With Razr getting ICS next week, I would think we are next in line.

    Got ICS yesterday. It is amazing on the razr. The custom ics Roms were ok for a while but this build with moto blur built in is amazing!

    I know someone with the remix resurrection ics v9.7. He says it has boosted his battery life tremendously, and that his galaxy nexus no longer runs hot, fwiw.

    Just goes to show you the updates from Motorola are not worth the digital paper they are written on.
    They are just words that never mean anything concrete.

    I seem to remember saying on more than a few occasions that we would get ICS by the end of April. This has held true for every OS upgrade since 2.0 with motorola phones. I don't begrudge Moto at all for not releasing a concrete date for release. After seeing the reaction in the past to busted timelines (primarily the fault of VZW), can anyone blame them?? The bottom line is that Moto has NO control over when the final updates hit, it's entirely in VZW's court for approval. After the gingerbread upgrades of last year (if you weren't around then, the OS upgrades caused major issues with a lot of phones) I believe they have the right to be picky as hell with what they accept as a final OTA product.

    I myself, will NOT be upgrading to ICS until it's been verified to cause ZERO issues with the Bionic. My phone is running flawlessly right now and I will not be tolerant of any bugs that the ICS upgrade may bring.

    Is it really necessary to be so nasty about the whole thing?

    I think people would be a little less hostile about the whole thing if we even had evidence that a Bionic build exists. If one did, one would think it would have turned up on the Cheesecake servers. It seems no one has found it as of yet. This is disheartening. I feel for Droid 4 owners as well, since i've seen no mention of that device either.
