Verizon Motorola Droid Bionic will get Android 4.1 Jelly Bean starting April 15
The promised official Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Motorola’s Droid Bionic will be finally rolled out starting Monday, April 15.
As always, the update will be pushed in phases, so it will take a while until all Droid Bionic users get to enjoy the benefits of Jelly Bean – which, in case you don’t know, include: Google Now, smarter notifications, improved Voice Search, enhanced keyboard, and many other tweaks and fixes. More details on the update are available here at the official Droid Bionic support page.
Slowly but surely, Verizon has managed to bring Jelly Bean to most of its important Android handsets released in 2012, or even 2011. The Droid 4 is still running Ice Cream Sandwich, though – but it should get JB, too, eventually.
Launched by Verizon in the second half of 2011 running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, the Motorola Droid Bionic is no longer available for purchase. You can buy newer Motorola smartphones instead, like the Droid Razr HD ($99.99 on contract), Droid Razr Maxx HD ($199.99 on contract), or the above-mentioned QWERTY-equipped Droid 4 ($99.99 on contract).
