Motorola and Verizon push out DROID X2 OTA maintenance update

For the most part the DROID X2 is a welcome update to Motorola's original 4.3-inch slate phone, but the Gingerbread update it received this summer is not without its issues. Users have reported iffy keyboard detection, camera issues and random shutdowns. Hopefully those problems will be gone, or at least diminished, when the latest over-the-air update is applied. It's available now - go to the "System Updates" section of the Android settings menu to download it. The DROID X2 was favorably reviewed back in May, with highlights including an improved 960 x 540 screen and the new dual-core processor. The phone lacks 4G LTE bands and so isn't quite in the same class as more recent devices like the HTC Thunderbolt and Motorola DROID BIONIC, but as an original DROID X owner who lives in a 3G-only area, I can tell you it's still a pretty solid phone. The Gingerbread update came in late July to a grateful userbase. Other fixes in the "1.3.380.MB870.Verizon.en.US" update include skipping in the included MP3 and YouTube apps, improved functionality with the official desktop dock, a more secure Mobile Hotspot app and better 720p video recording. You can head on over to Verizon's official page to see the full list of changes. Users who don't initiate an update manually should see an install message pop up on their phone sometime this week.

Motorola Droid X2 Gingerbread SBF Leaks

With the Motorola Droid X2 recently being updated to Gingerbread users might be a little cautious with flashing custom ROM's or anything else that may potentially cause issues for the phone. In case you don't know SBF files will save your handset and bring it back to stock life if you mess it up while tweaking or hacking it.

DROID X2 Gingerbread Out Today

According to no less than Verizon Support themselves, as well as the post we made a couple days ago, the Motorola DROID X2 is today receiving the Gingerbread update, rolled out in stages to users across the country. This update will give you a whole SLEW of new features, fixes, and general bug hammering out, PLUS Android 2.3 Gingerbread, so go see if you've got it right this second! For those of you still on the fence for some reason or another, we've got the whole list of updates coming your way right here in this post.

Motorola Droid X2 Getting Gingerbread Soon

Just last week Verizon started testing the Motorola Droid X2 Gingerbread update in what we call a "soak test". It looks as if things went smoothly and everything is a go because the official update page is now being shown right on Verizon. This should bring the Droid X2 up to Android 2.3 as well as the exciting new enhancements to Moto Blur or whatever they are calling their user interface enhancements.

Motorola Droid X2 Gets a Custom ROM, Looks Nice in Black

Today a custom ROM for the Droid X2 was made available. It's still in beta but this is the first ROM for the phone. I say beta but from initial reports almost everything seems to be working great and it appears to be a pretty stable and well put together ROM. It has a pretty all black theme that looks nice without being overdone.

Asurion Insurance out of Droid X, Sending Droid X2 for Replacements

Asurion is the handset protection and insurance offered by most smartphone providers like Verizon and T-Mobile, when your phone gets lost or broke they replace it and you only pay a deductible (if you have insurance of course). For high priced smartphones the deductible is around $130 to get your lovely android phone replaced. It looks like they are replacing users of the Droid X with the new and faster Droid X2, that is a nice upgrade if I don't say so myself.

Motorola Droid X Gingerbread Update Hinted via Project Invite

It's good to know that even though the DROID X2 is being sent out now, that the original Droid X wont be abandoned. By no means! A message has been sent out to developers and users of this cool classic Droid at Motorola's Mobility forums asking owners of the unit to participate in a project of little detail. This project requires you to go through an enrollment survey and sign a non-disclosure paper so that you don't spill the beans to the world before they do. What could it possible be? Perhaps they'll update their software to X2 proportions?

Motorola Droid X2 Review

We have had a few days with a couple new Android devices lately, they were both sporting 4.3" qHD Displays and boy do they look good. Today we have a few more details and pictures as well as our review of the Motorola Droid X2. We have had our paws on it all weekend and I must say I am impressed so far, from the nice and simple touches to the UI Overlay, all the way down to the hardware (even though its identical to the first Droid X). We have put Verizon's first dual-core beast through a test run and it is time to share our thoughts.

Droid X2 Hands-On and Unboxing [video]

The war is on! It's time for the qHD battle to begin, and it's begun this morning with no less than a HTC Sensation taking on the DROID X2, and wouldn't you know it, we've got both. Let me introduce you to the newest member of the DROID side - DROID X2! This is a Motorola device that appears at first to be ever so slightly different from the DROID X it replaces - will it be too much for those who love new specs to bear? And what about other phone comparisons? Would you like a couple of pics of the DROID X2 next to the G2x? Sure!
