Gingerbread for Droid 2 R2-D2 Starts to Roll Out

After the Motorola Droid 2 and Droid 2 Global both got boosts up to Gingerbread, we figured it would only be a matter of time before Verizon’s special edition Droid 2 R2-D2 handset would see the update and sure enough, shortly after the other Droid 2′s got Android 2.3, owners of the Star Wars branded phone are now seeing the update rolling out over-the-air.

The update doesn’t appear to be available for a manual grab which means that many of you out there might not be seeing the update right now. Be patient, it’s coming and it probably won’t be long until you’re able to play around with your new software.
