Gingerbread said to be coming to the Motorola DROID X, DROID Pro and DROID 2/Global

Those who just bought or are planning on buying the Motorola DROID X2 have no worries as the manufacturer has already announced that the phone will be getting Gingerbread. But those still clinging to their original Motorola DROID will seemingly be stuck with Android 2.2 as Time Magazine's 2009 Gadget of the Year just doesn't have the processing power to handle the newer version of the Android OS.

if you look at some of the video reviews of the Droid X2 with the new Droidblur Interface you'll see there are a few new widgets including a much needed bookmark widget and new gallery features that aren't in the leaked build.

For those like me who downloaded the leak, apparently we don't have the final build. Which is good, as there are a couple of bugs I uncovered which have probably been fixed. I'm actually happy that Moto is taking the time to iron out bugs before releasing the update. I'm going to check and see if I can download the final build when it's released. In the meantime, Gingerblur has still been a revolutionary experience.

Well I guess its a good thing I installed a gingerbread based rom over a month ago on my original Droid. Also been running it at 1.1ghz for over a year. Seriously, I've never owned a gadget with a longer shelflife than this phone.

Really MOTO/Verizon? I've been running 2.3 on my original DROID for months now, AND ITS UNDERCLOCKED TO 500MHz!!! It's not the processor, its the bloatware they put into their builds.
