The Motorola DROID Bionic was revealed to be getting a pretty massive maintenance upgrade but at the time we didn’t know when we’d be getting it. We knew what we’d be getting (check below) and expected an update within the next couple of weeks but we didn’t expect to get it this soon. The soak tests are now over and the upgrade is confirmed to be rolling out to users everywhere. Be sure to check your phone if you haven’t already automatically pulled it down over-the-air. Head to Verizon for more details and instructions on upgrading. [AC,]
