Motorola DROID 2 Global to be Gingerbread free until after Motorola DROID 3 is launched,
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.
