The recently released Motorola Droid 2 is already getting its first firmware update pushed out to the device from carrier Verizon Wireless. The handset had already shipped with Android 2.2 Froyo out of the box, along with support for Adobe’s Flash plugin and support for Google Voice Actions app, so this firmware won’t add anything new to the mix, but does improve performance and stability.
According to the carrier, the update should improve the following items:
+ Enabled text and picture message scrolling.
+ Streamlined set up of Visual Voice Mail feature.
+ Improved contact sync with Corporate Exchange categories and groups.
+ View accurate contact pictures when reviewing Recent Call Log.
If you haven’t received notification to update your Droid 2′s software, you can manually check for the update by going to Settings and initiating a check that way.
Users and reviewers who had noticed that the Droid 2 had come with its own version of the so-called death grip still are noticing that the issue persists after the update, creating erratic jumps in signal strength. Hopefully, that issue is a software glitch that will be addressed by Motorola and Verizon Wireless in another future software patch.
