Two Ice Cream Sandwich OTA announcements from Verizon in one day? Pinch me. Both the Motorola DROID Bionic (6.7.246) and LG Lucid (ZV7) are set to receive Android 4.0 updates, with the latter's set to go out tomorrow. The timing for the Bionic's bump to ICS hasn't been provided, but considering the Verizon support site documents are up, it should be any day now.

Verizon even provided some pretty pictures to tell you what the respective updates do this time!

Bionic owners in particular have been waiting quite some time for this upgrade, which has been delayed again and again. It's also nice to see LG actually, you know, update one of its phones. Head over to the respective Verizon Support pages to learn more about the new features and find updating instructions.

    Too little, FAR too late. I gave up and traded my Bionic for a GS3 two months ago because of their lack of support of a flagship device. Unless they issue a full refund, I'm NEVER buying a Motorola again.

    Hopefully this make the wait for the Nexus 4 a little easier to bear... if it actually happens.

    Funny how when VZW touts ICS' new features, they never mention how it can disable apps and keep them from running.

    And I just flashed the unofficial and now they release. Hmm...

    Can we down grade if we don't like Verizon's official update, after doing its update?

    HOLY MOTHER OF GOD ITS FINALLY HAPPENING. It looks like my mom and brother will get their ICS afterall before my poor Thunderbolt gets it! (Officially at least, the ICS roms ive run so far are decent but not perfect yet)

    While I'm sure Motorola is not without fault I think carrier (read : Verizon) interference / indifference is the bigger culprit.

  • HIGH5orDIE

    I have a Lucid and the update bricked it. Had to use my warranty to replace it and the replacement is certified preowned... needless to say I'm not too happy. Can't explain why it happened as it said the update was successful but just boot looped the LG logo.
