Motorola Planning Soak Test for Droid 3 Update

Advertisement

While taking a look at the just-beginning release of the Motorola Droid 2 Global’s Gingerbread update, we noted how Motorola’s luck seemed to be improving when it came to readying software updates for its phones on Verizon. It looks like the company’s sights are now on the new Droid 3, with plans to get an update out sometime this month.

Owners of the phone have reported receiving notification of an upcoming soak test to try out the update with a limited number of users. If everything goes smoothly, we should see the “Sept. 2011” update come out on-schedule.

What would this new software bring to the Droid 3? We haven’t seen any official lists, or even leaked copies, but rumors are pointing to fixes for certain battery problems, and enabling video calls with Google Talk. If you end up taking part in the soak, we’d love to hear what changes you notice to your phone.
