Verizon Wireless Thursday began pushing the Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread) OS upgrade to users of the popular Droid 2 smartphone. Verizon has posted on its Web site a list of benefits users get by installing Gingerbread as well as update instructions. Verizon recently began offering upgrades for other Motorola Droid models, including the Droid X on May 27, the Droid Pro on May 31 and the Droid X2 on July 29, according to Computerworld blogger JR Raphael.
As of Thursday, a Gingerbread upgrade to the Droid 2 Global phone is still pending. The newer Droid 3 has a 4-in. touchscreen, larger than the 3.7-in. touchscreen of the Droid 2. Droid 3 runsGingerbread version 2.3.4. A Verizon spokesman confirmed that slightly different operating system versions of Droid 2 and Droid 3, but didn't describe how the differences affect users.
Verizon and Motorola finally began pushing out the Gingerbread update for the Motorola Droid 2. Unfortunately, it’s Android 2.3.3 and not the latest version of Gingerbread, Android 2.3.4. Hopefully, fingers crossed, the update works out better than the Droid X Gingerbread update did. Droid X owners endured a nightmare with Gingerbread until Verizon and Motorola rolled out a fix.
The update brings Android 2.3.3, and includes the usual Gingerbread upgrades along with a newer version of Motorola's don't-call-it-BLUR interface. Users should be able to download the update from the software update section of About Phone in the Settings app.
