HTC Droid Incredible 2 gets Gingerbread snack
posted by Alan F. / Jul 12, 2011, 8:29 AM
Besides updating the OS on your HTC Droid Incredible 2 to Gingerbread, the download also adds many features and improves others. One thing that will make you over the moon with joy is the improved battery life that comes from the update. A new download manager app is also included along with a new and improved method of word selection and copy functionality. The download will improve "device stability", adds a desktop dock app and also lets you charge your handset wirelessly.
Of course, some improvements are more important than others. Once you have downloaded the update, the New York Times web site will be able to be listed on your browser's bookmark list, mobile IM performance should show improvement and alarm notifications will turn off in emergency mode. So go ahead and install the update on your HTC Droid Incredible 2. Your handset will thank you for it.
- Display 4.0" 480 x 800 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 1.3 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S2, Single core, 1000 MHz
- Battery 1450 mAh(6.50h talk time)
A little nervous to download it after seeing what it did to the DroidX and X2....

that was through moto though..they have had some issues with the software updates in the past (not trying to bash Moto). usually HTC does a pretty good job..Just wish it was being sent out to the Thunderbolt. Oh well...

I download gingerbread and its working great. Some cool little features so far that I've noticed are instead of 3 lines where you pull up your contacts they are 3 little people. Before when I tried to download Fake Call from the HTC Widgets it wouldn't let me and now it does. It's a pretty cool widget btw. Some new widgets are automatically on your phone now. There is a new clock where instead of underneath the clock is the weather there is Facebook status updates. Also a Peep Twitter trends widget. There was no NY Times bookmark in my bookmarks either so that's good. Can't tell on battery life yet
