Droid 2 Global Gingerbread Update Rolling Out This Week, But Not for Everyone



It’s probably not the news many of you Droid 2 Global owners with Android 2.3 were hoping for as it appears that the Gingerbread update will be rolling out this week in a  “soak test” similar to the one that went on with the Droid X before Verizon released the update to the masses.

A soak test is just fancy wording for trial run and that appears to be what Verizon will be doing with the Droid 2 Global this week. According to Droid-Life, the update is ready to go and Motorola is apparently inviting owners to take part in testing the software out before it rolls out to everyone.

So, testers will get it this week and if all goes well, the rest of the Droid 2 Global faithful will get it soon after. Verizon also released the change log notes in case you wanted to see what the update was going to be bringing along with it. One of the highlights appears to be better battery life when using the Droid 2 Global in conjunction with Wi-Fi.

A little bit of a bummer that you have to wait a little while longer but the real losers here are owners of the original Droid 2 who appear to be last in line as the Droid X and the Droid Pro have already received their bumps up to Gingerbread.

    If it’s anything like the GB for DX; I’d hold off on the update – too buggy

    I LOVE this update for the DROIDX!!!!! It’s quick, looks really fancy, the messaging is MuCH better, the home page is a lot neater, the lock page is all faded that looks really nice too. And it’s a lot more organized like what I was expecting when. I got the phone from my husband. This is like a completely new phone and I now love it 10x more now! <3 I hope this "trail" is a keeper :D

    Just Talked to VZW Tech support.. Gingerbread update is rolling out officially tomorrow, and will take a few days to reach everyone.  But he said everyone should have it within a few days after!   Great news for me!

    Spoke with Verizon tech support last week, and Droid X Gingerbread was on hold again. Two of my colleagues got it this morning, so I guess it’s rolling out again.
