After the Android 4.0 update for the Droid Bionic was pushed out to soak testers a week ago, Verizon has confirmed that the Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade is coming to everyone who still believes in the greatness of the Droid Bionic, but probably can’t wait for their two-year contract to end.

The update, as announced on Verizon’s website, will roll out starting today on October 19.

The software bump will bring ICS-specific features to the device, such as a new direct access lock, enhanced notifications window, data usage monitor, as well as the ability to create folders by simply stacking an app on top of another. And of course, you can now download Google’s Chrome browser for Android.

Although the new firmware is being pushed out today, don’t be alarmed if you don’t get the over-the-air update right away — as it’s usually done in phases. What’s a day or two more seeing that you’ve waited for what seems like an eternity already, right?

Feel free to share with the rest of our readers once you’ve received ICS, and let us know how it runs on your Droid Bionic.
