    They have alot of us in a corner with that having to buy a phone at full retail to keep unlimited data. It could conceivably cost my wife and I 1900 for two new phones and that is RIDICULOUS and not happening. My bionic is going to have to fall apart before I buy a new phone.

    Yours didnt fall apart already? lol j/k
    Well I'm in a similar situation but thats because I'm on a company account and upgrading isn't an option for probably a good 8-10 months but I'll buy one if the opportunity arises and I have the pocket money. Or wait till one of my coworkers upgrade is up and use my seniority to take the early upgrade.

    Now that ICS has restored a few of the features I had to give up when leaving WebOS for Gingerbread, the Bionic is perfectly adequate for my needs. Jelly Bean will only improve things. When we start getting beyond minor changes in screen resolution and the like to actual next-step technology (notably voice over LTE, which allows simplification of the internal radio infrastructure), I'll probably end up doing the same thing I'm doing with the Bionic: wait until I can buy a refurbished unit for $30, then keep it until well after the end of the contract.

    I love how everyone was all "RAWR Give me ICS NOW!!!" while waiting for the OTA update. Dang thing wasn't even fully rolled out before people started wanting JB. I predict if it starts leaking/rolling out early because it got rushed, that these same people will start crying JB bad, and want ICS back even though they got just what they asked for. XD

    Changed your mind how? Do you like the Webtop 3.0? I played with it last night and really didn't like it. It's pretty much a tablet now, except I can't use my finger to do things, I have to use a mouse, which is in my opinion not as good. What about the new webtop do you like? What programs do you use specifically on the webtop? Also, do you think they'll keep webtop when we go to JB? It really won't be on any other phones, except maybe the RAZR and maybe the latest ATRIX.

    ..the point of this thread was to confirm that Motorola does plan to support the Bionic through Jelly Bean.

    I love it. Webtop 3.0 is smoother and performs better than the previous versions. With the previous version of Webtop, I was really only able to have one Firefox browser window open at a time. Open any more than that and performance would suffer greatly.

    Apps like Gmail, Email, stock Browser, and Chrome all open up in tablet mode natively.

    This is what Webtop should have been in the first place.

    Things can change though.

    See Atrix, Atrix 2, Photon.

    The Photon and Atrix are Tegra devices.

    But the point I was trying to make is that the Atrix and Photon were scheduled to get ICS. I believe leaks for at least the Atrix point to Motorola working on them. But all development stopped.

    BTW, the Atrix 2 runs an OMAP, like the Bionic.

    Yea, I hear ya Ry...at least its in the works. If they don't make it before EOL, oh well. I'm still blown away how much better the phone is now. It's like they slapped a turbo or supercharger on an already quick car. Now, coming from a BB Storm 2, I might just be easily impressed...

    And my point was that they ran into more hassles than they wanted to deal with on the Tegra processors, but did the job on the Atrix 2 because it had OMAP.

    The Xoom runs Tegra.

    The Atrix 2 isn't getting Jelly Bean.

    I think it's more of a volume issue. There are probably more Bionics than Atrix 1 and 2s and Photons combined.

    Ok I get it everone is skeptical of us getting jb because of all the bs with this phone. However now that Google owns moto and is trying to mend fences with bionic owners do you really think they would plaster all over the net we are getting jb just to turn around and not give us jb.

    Just like nothing is official until it's official, nothing happens until it happens.

    Well, you may or may not be disappointed there. The House of Bionic has changed over the last month or so quite a bit. At least in terms of how I support it. I won't be making update installers when leaks come out. It's going to be a more "self service" model. The House of Bionic will already support the newest leaks out of the box. You just have to know how to add the support for it. It's VERY simple in reality. When I get some time I'm going to be adding some built in help screens to the HoB and I've asked for volunteers to create some videos that we can post. I also want to work on a tutorial, as well. I was beyond overwhelmed with support issues when 246 was released and I have ZERO intention of going through that again. I want the HoB to be useful to people, but, I can't spend that much time hand holding people through it. So when JB does drop, the current HoB already will support it and all you'll have to do is follow some very simple directions that amount to creating a new folder, adding some text to a filename, and running the HoB with your phone connected. It already does all that but it's not well understood apparently. I'll make it more obvious somehow.

    Can't say I blame you there, Samuri. Creating a solution for people should not mean becoming their tech support when they can't read / follow directions. Your efforts are appreciated beyond anything anyone can do to thank you.
