    Verizon officially announced today that the BIONIC (along with other devices) is indeed going to see ICS this year. Unfortunately they didn't give a date...

    We have all heard for over 6 months now that the bionic will get ICS but no one can give a time frame. I've heard January and February and March... Guess what? Still no ICS... At this point I dint even care.. There are ICS roms if you want it so bad. I'm not holding my breath.

    tappin and talkin on my BIONIC

    ^^Exactly. And there's no way they won't release ICS to the Bionic this year. Yeah it sort of fell into the dust, but it's not forgotten, and it's specs aren't incredibly different from other phones to make giving it ICS such a major challenge. Just relax, download go launcher or something, try a ROM, and wait for it to happen. When the time comes, it will be announced EVERYWHERE.

    It probably has a lot to do with the hardwares' upgradability... the TBolt was a solid piece of hardware when I had it, I can see why they are able to upgrade it to ICS

    Sarcasm all the way man!!!!

    On a side note, it amazes me that people actually listen to some random guy when it comes to stuff like this!!!! Until you see it in an official statement from either Moto or VZW don't believe anything you hear from a rep on either side of the house. Most of us on this forum know more about the phones and upgrades coming than any of the reps do!!!!!

    Agreed, too many people are easily persuaded by unofficial announcements. ETAs with technology are never accurate. =[

    What a app developer needs to do is to modify the "Magic 8 Ball" app so you can ask it questions about ETAs and get answers like "Coming out shortly" or "Not until next quarter" in addition to the usual "Check back later."

    Last night when the crescent moon had risen above the zenith I gazed upon the silver lake in the woods behind my house seeking answers about the ICS release date from the Wokathni the ancient spirit of the forest.

    His response was:

    "Woah unto those who speak unto the dim light souls of yesteryear. Their cries of anguish belittles the merriment of your own quest. Fear not- For all is not yet lost! What you seek lies only in the graven heart of a true warrior."

    I'm still not sure if he was pulling my leg (you can never trust forest spirits you know) but it's something at least. Although it did cost me the still warm heart of the great stag, so there IS that...

    Get so sick of these types of complaints - happens with EVERY device that gets released.

    It seems like people would prefer the manufacturers release these new OSes the minute they hit Google's servers. However, i'd venture to say that very few of you have ANY experience coding a new operating system/driver/etc. If they rush this out, IT WON'T WORK. If you thought you had it bad with the launch Bionic OS, i'd venture to say a rushed ICS would be even worse. Better to wait until things are working well, rather than rush things. ICS is NOT so earth shatteringly different that your very existence will change upon its release. It's just another Android version to get used to.

    Personally, I am happy with my Bionic as it currently sits. NOT looking forward to ICS (and the inevitable breakage of features).
