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.
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.
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.
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 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.
