An email sent from the Motorola Feedback Network asks original Motorola DROID owners if they would like to be involved in a project. You must be a member of the Motorola Owners Forum to participate. While the project, which is called confidential in the email, is not revealed, this type of email is usually sent out after a soak test which implies that a firmware update is coming to the device.
Will it be Gingerbread? Ice Cream Sandwich? Something else? Considering the age of the phone, Motorola DROID owners will most likely welcome any update with open arms. Many buyers of the original DROID are looking to upgrade to the Motorola DROID RAZR, the HTC Rezound or the Samsung GALAXY Nexus and while updating the firmware won't change the aged processor on the phone, it might make users more comfortable using the model until a decision to upgrade is made.
