Gingerbread update confirmed for Verizon's Motorola DROID X, coming May 27th
UPDATE: Verizon has confirmed that the update will be rolled out to the DROID X starting tomorrow, May 27th.

Verizon’s Motorola DROID X is one of the most popular Android devices, but up until now DROID X users were stuck with earlier versions of Google’s platform. Now, Verizon has posted information about the upcoming update on its website, so it’s as official as it gets. The only thing that’s still missing is an exact release date.

The 4.3-inch Motorola DROID X will get a host of new features with Gingerbread including improved copy-paste, a download manager app and new user interface. The update, romantically referred to as 4.5.596.MB810.Verizon.en.US, will take up 112MB of space if your current version is 2.3.340.

Verizon has estimated an average 20 to 40 minute for downloading and up to 10 minutes for installing the update, but we would also add a word of caution for users with rooted devices, who could take their time until it’s confirmed that their device is fully compatible. Impatient folks can navigate to Settings > About phone > System updates > Download to see if the update has already appeared for download.
