Back at the beginning of November, we heard that Motorola was at work on a much-needed update to the buggy Droid Bionic, and that it should be ready for release in a month or two. A couple weeks later, we learned that Motorola was recruiting
As Verizon is wont to do, it’s updated the Bionic’s support page to reflect this coming update shortly in advance of its release. As expected, there are a ton of fixes and improvements claimed with this system software 5.5.893.
Post-update, the Bionic will be able to share its cellular connection with up to eight devices over WiFi. Stability should be increased, with fewer unexpected resets or freeze-ups, and specific improvements to reliability when using Bluetooth, HDMI, or a Lapdock.
One really nice-sounding change is a faster, more responsive camera with better auto-focus. When testing the Bionic, we noticed some high-frequency audio interference, and Motorola blessedly reports that the issue should now be resolved. There are even more little changes than we can list here, so check out the PDF on Verizon’s support page for the full listing.
