Motorola DROID 2 Global to be Gingerbread free until after Motorola DROID 3 is launched,
For all of you Motorola DROID 2 Global owners waiting for your update to Android 2.3, be patient as Gingerbread is apparently on the way. A leaked screen shot of a document dealing with the impending launch of the Motorola DROID 3 says that Android 2.3 is expected to be available soon after the launch of the latest build of the device that started Androidmania.

There was some thought that Motorola was still having trouble producing a bugs-free version of Gingerbread that would satisfy Verizon. As we reported, there has been speculation that the poor performance of the Android 2.3 update for the Motorola DROID X had led to a freeze on Android 2.3 updates for Motorola devices on Verizon which, of course, includes the DROID 2 Global. If that is the case, there is no word on whether or not Verizon is now ready to accept the upgrade for its Motorola DROID devices.

As we told you, the Motorola DROID 3 will ship for Direct Fulfillment orders on July 7th and is expected to be in stores a week later. This means that Motorola DROID 2 owners should not expect an upgrade until sometime after July 14th.
