    Pretty much straight from the horses mouth the Bionic update won't be until early to late December. :mad:

    "I know everyone is eager for updated software. We have been working diligently on a software update for DROID BIONIC and have a version in the testing stage; we expect to deliver it to users in 30 to 60 days. The update is targeting issues identified through owner feedback and we’re confident it will improve device performance. "

    pretty sure Matt misspoke on that one.. either that or he was instructed to "under promise and over deliver".
    the update is still expected in the next 2 weeks from what I've been told.. soak test is supposedly scheduled for roughly 10 days from now unless a major bug is discovered.

    Just wondering though...where are you getting your info from that could counter a statement made by a Motorola employee? Don't get me wrong i like your reply better but I'd like to compare sources :)

    I'm guessing it will be out much sooner than 30-60 days. If moto says 30-60 days and it takes 2 weeks they come off looking pretty good. If they say 2 weeks and there's a problem that causes it to take 30-60 days its a PR nightmare and people will start talking about class action lawsuits.
    I'm thinking this is just a CYA move by moto.

    No. We won't see that for a couple of quarters at least.

    The first update the Bionic gets will NOT be ICS.
    The 2nd update (roughly 60 days after the first) MIGHT be.
