Motorola Droid 2 Global Gingerbread Situation Doesn’t Look Good
In the middle of June, everything seemed as right as rain with the Droid 2 Global’s Gingerbread update. After a soak test, it would start rolling out to the Droid 2 Global masses and the Droid 2 Global would be one of a handful of old phones with the Android 2.2 upgrade. Unfortunately, none of that happened (the Droid X’s update is likely to blame) and last we heard from the Droid 2 Global Gingerbread update, it had been rejected by Verizon.
Sadly, we have more bad news today as Verizon has apparently pulled the Gingerbread update information from its website and now lists the information of the previous software update.
So what does this mean? Well, there are two viewpoints. One, Verizon has been hard at work and it pulled the update info because it’s going to release another changelog in the next few days to reflect the stuff that it has fixed.
If you’re more of a glass half empty kind of person, then you’re probably thinking that this update has a long way to go before it’s released to the public and unfortunately, that’s the way I’m leaning right now.
I have a feeling that Verizon and Motorola want to iron out the issues with the Droid X and get Gingerbread out for the Motorola Droid X2 before anything happens with the Droid 2 Global. That means that it could be awhile before the update rolls out and while that’s a shame, take comfort in the fact that the companies didn’t release an update that was full of bugs.
