Motorola DROID Pro gets its Gingerbread update

Motorola DROID Pro gets its Gingerbread update
The Motorola DROID Pro might not be the most imposing handset wearing the DROID name, but what it has inside is enough for Motorola to update the phone with Android 2.3.3. The DROID Pro and its BlackBerry-esque QWERTY keyboard will also be adding the new Blur skin along with Gingerbread. Unfortunately, since the update is not to Android 2.3.4, Google Talk is not supported by the handset just yet.

Just this past weekend, Verizon's former flagship phone, the Motorola DROID X, was upgraded to Gingerbread as well. And as we reported, besides the two already upgraded handsets, the DROID 2 Global and the just launched Motorola DROID X2 are the remaining two Motorola produced DROID phones expected to receive Gingerbread. Owners of the original Motorola DROID are out of luck, although they can drown their sorrows in a Netflix streamed movie.

The manual update will supposedly be available in the daytime today. I hope so, I think the fact that I have the leaked Gbread build on my phone is preventing me from getting the official update OTA.

No word on when it's coming out yet, but yes, the X2 will have Gingerbread. It already has new Blur, which by itself seemed to improve the performance of the phone.

is it better to run launcher pro on droidx2 or leave it stock?

i personally use GO Launcher EX on top of my Blur experience. it doesn't have the developer back bone that Launcher Pro has but it adds more functionality and they're always coming out with good updates for it.

Okay, it took me most of the night, but I got my phone onto the final build of Gingerblur. :)

Okay, so why did I get thumbed down? I had to revert my phone to Froyo because I was running a leaked build, then had to hard reset the phone because it started to bootloop, then had to set the phone up, activate it, restore accounts and information, download the Gingerbread update, install it, restart, and finish restoring data to my phone. I started around 2:30 and finished around five in the morning.

I just downloaded the new Ginerbread for my Droid X. I LOVE it but the only thing is that my "Contacts" are not opening. It says that my contacts are not installed on my phone? Helllp please
