First-gen Motorola DROID to get an update?
At a time when most smartphones have been retired by their owner, stuffed away in a drawer never to see the light of day again, the 2-year old Motorola DROID continues to be a useful smartphone. Last updated with Froyo, the handset credited with kicking off the current run of Androidmania could be getting a firmware update from Motorola.

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.
