The Motorola DROID BIONIC was one of Verizon’s most storied devices. It was on the wrong side of storied, however, as its history is a bit tainted. Even before launch, the device was being juggled about the offices of Motorola and Verizon, undergoing at least one major redesign and experiencing lengthy delays.
The fun didn’t stop there. Multiple software bugs absolutely plagued the device, and the Big Red gang wasn’t particularly lightning fast in regards to fixing them. Things eventually smoothed out over time, and while there may not be many of you left owning the device, the ones who’ve stuck through thick and thin are about to be rewarded.
Motorola has updated its device upgrades portal to show that Jelly Bean will soon be coming to the Motorola DROID Bionic. The release window has only been set to Q2, and while that’s a pretty wide net to cast we’re at least happy that’s set to begin in just a few days. It could be headed here April 1st or it could be landing June 31st. Either way, we’re going to hold Motorola and Verizon to a day between those two dates so we’ll be keeping our eye out for it, and so should you.
[Motorola, thanks to everyone who sent this in!]
