Droid X owners are advised to be on the lookout for a new software update this Friday. Starting on May 27th, the carrier will begin deploying Android 2.3 Gingerbread to the Motorola handset, tossing in a slew of new features. You’ll have to head over to Verizon’s support page now to get a full look at what’s in store, but we’ll share a few of our favorites.
- Dock Icons: Static Phone, App Launcher and Contacts icons are replaced within a customizable dock. Three swappable icons and the App Launcher icon are fixed to the Dock at the bottom of all home screen panels for easy and instant access.
- App Groups: New App Menu allows creation of custom app groups, in addition to 3 default groups: All Apps, Recent and Downloaded.
- Download Manager App: New App to manage all of your downloads from web browsing, email attachments and other apps.
