Motorola Droid Pro Finally Getting Gingerbread Update

Motorola revealed back in May that it would be providing Gingerbread updates for a large portion of its Droid family of smartphones, including the Droid Pro. Just a week or so later, we heard that the Droid Pro’s Gingerbread update was already heading out to users. That turned out to be a false start, and marked the beginning of a summer plagued by such troubled software releases for Motorola phones. Now that fall’s upon us, Motorola and Verizon are trying their hands at this again, and it looks like Gingerbread for the Droid Pro is finally ready to arrive.

Verizon has updated its support documents for the Droid Pro to reflect this new release, bringing the phone up to system software 4.6.8.XT610. The major component of the update is, of course Gingerbread, and all the improvements we’ve come to expect from it. You’ll find plenty of fixes and system tweaks, as well, hopefully keeping your Droid Pro in tip-top operating condition; battery life should be a bit extended, GPS use won’t make the Droid Pro reset, and there have been several fixes to SMS behavior.

We’ve heard that some users are getting the update already, but don’t have word on how long it should be before it reaches everyone.
