Tagged: Droid 2 Global
Motorola DROID 2 should have an update hitting your device sometime over the next few days. To start, we've heard and seen plenty about the 2.3 Gingerbread update for the DROID 2 Global and after more than a few soak tests and trial updates from as far back as June, today it's officially rolling out again and should be smooth and ready to rock.
right around the corner. Verizon updated its support page today, announcing that the newest system update would bring Android 2.3 to the popular handset. The page doesn't give an exact date, but Verizon usually doesn't wait more than a week after an official update guide to begin rolling out the software. The Motorola DROID 2 Global was originally set to get a taste of Gingerbread last month, but some last-minute issues forced a retraction. According to Verizon's documentation, the new software version will bring new features like improved power management, keyboard detection, a revised user interface, new encryption and VPN options and an improved calendar. Speaking of calendars, it's only been 11 months since Gingerbread was available to manufacturers - and we're expecting an official announcement for Android Ice Cream Sandwich any day now. Other improvements highlighted by Verizon include better email syncing, more stability (i.e. fewer device crashes), improved Bluetooth power and volume management, better WiFi power management and new versions of Google Books, Accuweather, the Amazon MP3 store, Blockbuster (woo), and Flash. The software update isn't available just yet, but keep checking the OTA update in the settings menu - you never know when the staggered rollout will begin. If you're the warranty-voiding adventurous type, don't forget that leaks of the update have been available for some time. [device id=312]
back in June it was quickly pulled and delayed after a few other Moto devices received updates that caused more harm than good. Thanks to a nice community member we have a leaked version 4.5.606 to try out for you guys.
DROID2 and Global, and that this update will improve Exchange Activesync functionality. This is fabulous news for all Droid folks for more than one reason, obviously, but the Activesync issue being fixed is like some frosting on an already delicious cookie.
