Motorola DROID 2 Global new 2.3 Gingerbread update rolling out now

It's that time again and those of you rocking the Motorola DROID 2 should have an update hitting your device sometime over the next few days.

Official DROID 2 Global Gingerbread update is coming soon

Good news, DROID 2 Global Edition users, your long-awaited Gingerbread update is 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]

Developer Creates Bloat Manager for Droid 2 Global, Users Demand Same for All Androids

If you're a user of basically any Android product outside the few that are released without any Bloatware, Bloatware being apps on your device when you first take it out of the box, you might be wishing you had a solution for them, aka a way to get rid of them as MOST Bloatware is impossible to get rid of without a complex solution. Take a peek here: a developer by the name of Nalthos has created a utility that re-names Bloatware apps in a way that makes them not be able to be activated by your phone, therefor making sure they no longer eat up your resources (great since you're not using them at all anyway, right?)
