Verizon pulls of an unusual and surprising move, releasing an update to its Motorola Droid X. While not bringing in anything earth-shattering, the update does include fixes and improvements that should make current owners of the three year old device feel less abandoned.

long overdue software update that fixes a host of bugs in the latest official Gingerbread build. DX users can get the update now via the manual method, or just wait for the update message to appear on your phone. And if you're still running stock, you'll definitely want the update.
DROID X for those concerned. Apparently they launched a beta "soak test" software update late last week for a few forum members to test out. Today it is finally official as Verizon is giving us all the update details. Currently listed as coming soon we expect the DROID X update to land this week, more details and change log available below.
DROID X remains one of the most popular models of Android phones on Verizon, and no one who bought one on a contract back in 2010 (like me!) is eligible for an upgrade any time soon. So it's great to see an active modding community around this solid phone, despite Motorola and Verizon's continued stance on a locked bootloader. The latest project from RootzWiki for the venerable DX is a port of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
known for doing these sorts of deals so this shouldn't be all that new to anyone. Wirefly adds phones to the list of FREE devices almost every week and in case you miss them, I'm here to remind you. Last week they had the Thunderbolt for $99, and this week they have some top-tier phones all for free and they include: HTC EVO 4G, Motorola Droid X, Droid 2 Global and more.
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.
Pantech Crossover - the first Android device by Pantech to hit the United States. T-Mobile’s HTC Flyer tablet hit the FCC early in the week as well; unfortunately, there is still no information regarding any type of 4G capability.
@cvpcs and you can follow him on Twitter for news and updates as things progress. Obviously this is a BETA and is still a work in progress but this is exciting news and a big step against Motorola's bootloader issues.
slew of Verizon Droid devices getting 2.3 soon. Apparently the 2.3 update was approved back at the first of May, but better late than never right.
