Motorola says Gingerbread in oven for Motorola DROID 2 Global, just not completely cooked

Motorola says Gingerbread in oven for Motorola DROID 2 Global, just not completely cooked
Certainly you remember the other day when we reported that the Motorola DROID 2 Global was ready to receive the Gingerbread update? Now, we can imagine the typical owner of the handset sitting in front of a table with the DROID 2 Global sitting on top and the owner pleading with his phone, " Update, please, I know you can do it". But all of the pleading in the world didn't help and every Motorola DROID 2 Global remains stuck at Android 2.2 all because Motorola stepped in and put the kibosh on the Gingerbread update for the model.

According to the Motorola Owner's Forum, Verizon had put forth some misinformation and there is no correct information on when the Motorola DROID 2 Global will be munching away at Gingerbread. So if you do own this device, you can stop staring at the screen and wishing for the new software to appear-it is not going to happen until Motorola says it will. And when they say it is time, we will let you know. Now go and play outside-it's a sunny day.

Even though Verizon gave a green light to the Gingerbread update for the Motorola DROID 2 Global, Motorola said the update is not ready

How about a Gingerbread update for the Atrix for goodness sakes! Droid gets the update but Atrix doesn't??? Not even a peep? WTF?

xD i keep telling you mr. droid the version of Blur coming to the X2 is different from that on the X. it'll be more like the Droid 3 & Bionic and also the Photon 4G.

Be careful what you guys wish for. 7 months after Motorola finally fixed all those 2.2 bugs from last September's update, we're plagued with a whole new set of 2.3 GB bugs on the Droid X. Pictures taken in portrait orientation are still rotated incorrectly when emailed or MMS. Keyboard is laggy in everything. Camera app takes forever to open, you always end up missing good photo-ops! Navigation randomly freezes and crashes and so on and so on... 2.3 really makes me miss 2.2

The only bug you mentioned which I've noticed is the keyboard being leggy, though this also usually only happens on a website like this. At least we don't have the bug from the leaked rom where the keyboard ended up refusing to stay up for more than a few seconds at a time. For you all whining about Gingerblur not being on the X2 and ATRIX, those phones came out way after the X and 2 Global. The latter phones are also in the hands of many more customers. Which is probably why the 2 still doesn't have the update, because it was only on sale for a few months.

I thought android had no bugs, mistakes, and was capable of everything. Oh wait....

Yes, and the iPhone has no design mistakes, like an exposed antenna that loses signal when you touch it - only owners who hold it wrong.

Felonius, just to answer you question the Atrix will be getting 2.3.3 later this month or early july, and then upgraded to 2.3.4, in july mmost likely. You can look up the video review in youtube or look up the articles on it in google.

I start thinking never buy a motorola ever again... I have a milestone 2 and my girlfriend a Defy... it take ages to update defy to 2.2 and will take even more to update the milestone 2 to 2.3 motorola knows how to irritate their costumers. motorola does not know that the onwers of smartphones want their devices updated as fast as possible and motorola does not want to update at all. they only do when their costumers complain about it....and we complain a lot just remember that statementthat said to buy the smartphone for what they are not on the updates they could take.

Name one Android manufacturer that consistently updates its phones faster than Motorola. Samsung takes forever, HTC got Gingerbread out to its customers slower than Motorola, and more Motorola models have Gingerbread than any other manufacturer.

people just like to bitch/moan bro...manufacturer's/carriers could release timely updates and you would still have some dirt bag complaining. you win some...you lose some.

Sniggly, please tell me that really isn't a photo of you as your avi. The fact that you would put a photo of yourself on a site like this and look like that scares me.

Moto it's the summer no one wants to eat gingerbread cookies that for Christmas. It's hot we would like an ice cream sandwich much more.
