After several delays and a redesign, the Motorola Droid Bionic was finally launched by Verizon in September. Now, the smartphone is getting a software update which fixes bugs and improves quite a lot of stuff.
Here are some of the new things the update (build number 5.5.893) brings: improved data connectivity on both 4G (LTE) and 3G, support for up to 8 devices via Mobile Hotspot, messaging enhancements, Facebook posting enhancements, and Lapdock related fixes.
You can check out the full changelog and further details here at Verizon.
The version of Android the Bionic runs remains unchanged for now, but the handset will get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich next year.
Verizon is currently selling the Motorola Droid Bionic for $199 on contract. Amazon currently has it for less, though: just $49 (also on contract, of course). So, head over if you want to buy the Bionic for $150 less.
