Verizon Support Page Brings Droid 2 Owners One Step Closer to Gingerbread

Motorola Droid 2 owners are now one step closer to finally receiving Gingerbread according to a couple of Verizon support pages that went live yesterday. It’s been a long time coming for proud owners of the Droid 2 patient enough to remain unrooted. Barring any unforeseen issues, an OTA Gingerbread update for the Droid 2 should be ready to roll out very soon. Software update 4.5.601.A955.Verizon.en.US is a big one, weighing in at 106MB and chock full of enhancements. I’ll leave you to check out the full change logs but I will list a few key enhancements to get you started:

  • New App to manage all of your downloads from web browsing, email attachments
    and other apps.
  • Under Manage Applications, a new “Running” tab displays a list of active
    applications, as well as the storage and memory being used by each.
  • New ability to enter numbers and symbols with keyboard shortcut combos,
    without having to change to the numeric keyboard mode.
  • New capability to select a word via press-hold. A second press of
    the selected word copies the selected characters.
  • New widgets, icons and screens with refreshed colors.
  • 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. The Phone, App Launcher and
    Contacts icons are now within this customizable dock.
  • New App Menu allows creation of custom app groups, in addition to 3 default groups:
    All Apps, Recent and Downloaded.

I think Droid 2 owners have waited long enough so let’s hope this update doesn’t end up another one of those “don’t hold your breath” situations.
