Verizon Motorola Droid 2 Global and Droid Pro Android 2.3 Gingerbread updates finally rolling out now

Today is a big day if you own either a Motorola Droid 2 Global or a Droid Pro. The updates to Android 2.3 Gingerbread for both devices are now going out, after a few false starts here and there. The update for the Droid 2 Global was supposed to happen in September, but got pushed because of some last minute issues. The update for the Droid Pro was reported as going live a couple of weeks ago, but either that was a small test rollout, or simply wishful thinking, for it’s today that Verizon officially announced that these updates have started rolling out.

The updates come over-the-air, you won’t need a computer to download and install. All OTA rollouts are staggered, so it may take a while before the update you need arrives on your particular device. Don’t fret though, it is on the way. If you’d like to manually check for the update, or just review Verizon’s instructions, go to this PDF for the Droid 2 Global and this PDF for the Droid Pro.

If you’d like to know what fixes and enhancements these updates bring, aside from the Gingerbread platform, all the necessary details can be found in this PDF for the Droid 2 Global and this PDF for the Droid Pro.

    This update absolutely sucks.  Lag?  My Droid 2 Global rarely had lag issues before, now when I simply slide to another menu window all of the icons will be gone on the new page, then slowly fill in from top left to right bottom.  And the damn thing won’t shut off!  If I power it down, and then put it in my pocket it restarts itself.  In order to completely shut it off I have to select power off and then hold it in my hand for the almost 2 minutes it takes to power down.  I actually need to shut it off because of where I work I can’t have it on in the building.  2.3 is a POS.

    Some features are improvements. Some no better – like voice calling. Phone is still deaf 1/2 the time and contines to ask for a command. One huge annoyance is that attached Wav files in email will no longer play. That was great feature for office VM.
