All’s been quiet on the Motorola Droid Pro front for the past couple months, but the QWERTY Android is back on our radar as Verizon has begun sending out a new update to the smartphone, with a whole bunch of fixes and tweaks, but without the Gingerbread its users have likely been hoping for.
Droid Pro software 3.8.7.XT610 mostly focuses on email, with better Exchange ActiveSync performance. That includes fixing some delays that would crop up when transferring emails, properly handling calendar event sync, and letting you store local copies of emails in a secure, encrypted state.
The litany of bugfixes in this update will leave you with a Droid Pro that now properly reports radio status when functioning as a mobile hotspot, automatically manages Bluetooth microphone volume levels, and is able to roam globally without issues stemming from airplane mode. Apparently someone’s been forgetting to keep the Droid Pro wound, as the on-screen clock had been losing time; it’s all-fixed now. Verizon’s leaving its mark on the update as well, packaging in the latest V CAST apps.
If you haven’t received an update notification yet, be patient, as the OTA distribution process is currently in full-swing and should be reaching everyone soon.
