Verizon’s Motorola DROID X is one of the most popular Android devices, but up until now DROID X users were stuck with earlier version of Google’s platform. Now, Verizon has posted information about the upcoming update on its website, so it’s as official as it gets…

Shouldn't take more than 30 minutes for the 1st person, with no evidence whatsoever, to claim that the update has hit their phone....

Who cares if they have evidence. They are releasing an update. People are going to get it. People are going to post about it. What was the point of your comment?

Why does Verizon constantly update phone that are doing good (software wise), but leave the Thunderbolt with an unstable software. G.O.D. I wish I could leave Verizon without forking out big bucks for breaking my contract. :(

The update was released for download over a month ago. I put it on my DX n it runs so much smoother than eclair or froyo BY FAR

Not this update, this is the official update from Motorola signed off by Verizon. There will be differences such as the official one will probably carry more crapware that no one wishes to use and you can't delete it...no idea why they force this issue at all, not like you can use a CDMA Verizon phone elsewhere to begin with.

Makes sense to update the older phones first as they are already more stable than the newer ones, and people already have them so it makes sense to keep those customers happy. New phones are new so that alone will make people want to have them, the TB is pretty much beyond saving. Also the it's a Droid X, last years flagship phone.

the official build looks to have more widgets (including a much needed bookmark widget) and an updated gallery.

If the new GB .596 can not be rooted for the time being. I'm not updating. I'm running an Odexed .595 GB leak. Rooted.
