    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

    Turbo Power Activate
    ^^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

    I honestly don't know if you're being sarcastic or not lulz.

    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. =[
