Next Motorola project is for the Motorola XOOM
Motorola has been recently sending out emails from the Motorola Feedback Network inviting the owners of certain Motorola manufactured devices to allow their device to be included in an unnamed project. To be included, one must be a member of the Motorola Owner's Forum. With the latest email going out to those sporting a Motorola XOOM tablet, that makes three the number of devices being involved in a project recently, which includes the Motorola DROID BIONIC and the OG Motorola DROID.

The email says that the project is confidential, but that hasn't stopped us from hearing that the DROID is receiving some security updates with one anonymous source passing on to us the news that his model has been updated from Android 2.2.2 to Android 2.2.3. A firmware update is the likely result of all of this clandestine activity as Motorola usually sends out similar letters following a "soak test" used by the manufacturer to see how a limited number of a specific device responds to an update.

When the dust settles, will we see Ice Cream Sandwich for the Motorola DROID BIONIC and the Motorola XOOM? And besides closing the security gaps on the OG DROID, is there any chance that we might see Gingerbread on the handset that started Androidmania?

What "bootloader unlocking situation" are you referring to?

You think they're trying to find a way to lock down the OG's bootloader like they did to every other Android phone they've released since then? If so, that would suck. It would also be ironic because it would simply prevent people from being able to easily update their phone to the latest version of Gingerbread that's available (like I have, 2.3.7), which would fix the inherent security bugs in Froyo to begin with...

I received my OG update two days ago. I own the Droid Razr now but I have my old standby. Although it has no phone capability, it still receives mail through Google mail and my att mail account.
