Motorola DROID X gets security update (and no, we don't mean the Motorola Moto X)
The Motorola DROID X was the result of the manufacturer's brainstorming on how to take advantage of what was then a major sensation with the Motorola DROID. Phone buyers who never heard of Android just weeks before, were all of a sudden offered a device with a massive (at the time) 4.3 inch screen. Even the 1GB OMAP processor, just single-core, was considered top-shelf back in  2010.

The phone also was the subject of a couple of ads that Motorola ran, aimed at the Apple iPhone 4's left-handed death grip. When Apple agreed to send iPhone 4 owners a free rubber bumper to prevent the user's body from putting the antennas on the phone out of tune, Motorola put out a full page ad for the DROID X screaming "No Jacket Required".

What brought on this trip down memory lane was the word that the 3-year old Motorola DROID X had received a security update on Friday. Software version 45.621.10.MB810 has two items on the changelist. First, enhanced accuracy and reliability of the Commercial Mobile Telephone Alerts (CMAS) has been achieved, and secondly, Google security patches have been integrated to reduce potential security risks. That's all there is to it. Surely you weren't expecting Kit Kat?
