Verizon to Commence Gingerbread Update for Droid X

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.
