Gingerbread update for the Motorola DROID 2 is being pushed out pronto to handsets
There’s no arguing that the Motorola DROID 3 exudes that perfect combination of dreamy specs and improved design to make it one of the more substantial handsets for Verizon, but its predecessor is also seeing some love now that Gingerbread is making its way to it.

Today, the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update is being sent out and brings the Motorola DROID 2 up to spec with some of its siblings. However, it’s only packing Android 2.3.3 as opposed to the more recent version of 2.3.4 – still, we’re sure handset owners are going to be appreciative. Obviously, one of the more prominent visual changes with it is the fact that it sports a new user interface and color scheme. Meanwhile, some of the other listed new goodies include the following:

  • New Download Manager App
  • Under Manage Applications, a new “Running” tab displays a list of active applications, as well as the storage and memory being used by each
  • Multi-Touch Key-Chording
  • Improved Word Selection and Copy Functionality
  • New widgets, icons and screens with refreshed colors
  • Three swappable icons and the App Launcher icon are fixed to the dock at the bottom of all home screen panels for easy and instant access
  • New App Menu allows creation of custom app groups
  • Added Device and SD Card encryption
  • VPN enhancements integrate IPSec VPN clients into device security settings
