In a recent email sent out to Motorola Feedback Network members, Motorola states that it’s currently looking for users to test an upcoming software release before it launches. This could be the simple 2.2.1 update that we have heard is coming, or it may be something bigger – Gingerbread anyone?

The full email to potential testers is as follows:

Thanks for joining the Motorola Feedback Network. We value your input!

We recently learned of an opportunity to test new software for the original Droid in advance of wide release. These pre-launch “soak” tests are becoming increasingly common for Android phones. Naturally, we want to get as many Motorola Feedback Members involved as possible.

If you are interested in taking part, please re-register for the Motorola Feedback
Network using this link. The new registration process is much shorter than the older one. If you register and provide the required information and permissions, you will be invited to take part in the upcoming test for Droid. We will contact you about the test when the time is right.

If you are now using a different Motorola phone, please re-register as well, so we can include you in projects for your current phone. (If you click the link above and find you don’t end up on the survey, but on a forum page entitled “Thanks for registering for the Motorola Feedback Network!” please read that page for an explanation.)

Please respond as soon as possible. There is a limit to how many Motorola Feedback Network members we can include, and we will work on a first come, first served basis.

Very interesting indeed. We can certainly hope this is a major release and that Gingerbread is already in testing on the device, but chances are this is just a minimal update to 2.2.1.
