Many owners of last year’s Motorola Droid Bionic have learned to expect the worst as far as an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is concerned. That’s because there have been numerous delays to the update’s rollout, including a few that led to the third quarter of 2012 coming and going without any update at all; this was after Verizon and Motorola had promised an “early Q3 2012” rollout.
Fortunately, a new report says that the ICS update for the Droid Bionic has just been approved. This means it shouldn’t be more than a few days before the update would be rolling out at long last.
This report comes almost one year after Motorola had initially announced that the Droid Bionic, an Android 2.3 Gingerbread phone, would be upgradable to ICS. As usual, the update was advertised as “coming soon”, and it wasn’t until months later that the aforementioned Q3 2012 rollout was ostensibly confirmed by both companies.
As nothing happened in the third quarter of this year, many Droid Bionic users quickly grew frustrated, but it does look like the long wait should be ending soon for all those who had complained through various mediums about the oft-delayed update.
Unfortunately, there are still a few other prominent Gingerbread devices that have yet to receive their updates to Ice Cream Sandwich. These phones include the HTC Droid Incredible 2 and Thunderbolt. If we find out something about the ICS updates for those two phones and others, we will let you know.
