In case you own an old Motorola Droid X (and don’t want the new Droid X2), we’ve got great news for you: Verizon will start rolling-out an Android 2.3 Gingerbread upgrade for the Droid X this Friday, May 27 – a bit later than initially expected, but anyway.
The upgrade (software version 4.5.596) will bring not only Gingerbread, but also several enhancements, including a refreshed MotoBlur UI, improved word selection and copy functionality, and “improved battery life while using Bluetooth.”
More info on the upgrade is available here at the Droid X official support page (full change log included).
Although the new Droid X2 is available since last week, you can still buy a new Droid X – it costs $149.99 on contract (while the X2 is $199.99).
