    Motorola's Droid 2 Global has a software update on the way, and while it may not be the Gingerbread you've been waiting for, there will be some fixes for several annoying bugs. Update 2.4.330 should be going out over-the-air any day now, as a flyer notifying retailers of the coming software patch was produced earlier this month. While many of the fixes deal with issues arising from the phone's international compatibility, general tweaks like better audio performance should be enjoyed by all. The full list of improvements and fixes is as follows: * Device now prepends 011 to Country Code to ...

    While today is the day to buy your first Samsung Nexus S Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread powered smartphone, Best Buy appears to be freezing the sales on the Verizon Droid 2 Global and Droid Pro handsets. According to a screenshot (above), Verizon is restricting activations for the Droid 2 Global and the Droid Pro -- both released on November 9 -- and directs stores to pull the mocks as well as quarantine the units existing on stock till further notice. We're not sure why Verizon is pulling this move -- maybe there's an issue with the devices that might make them explode or they might be ...

    Motorola may have killed the silver Droid X "SE" that we spotted last month, according to Verizon insider black_man_x, but may now be planning to release a Droid X worldphone a la the Droid 2 Global. Little was known about this so-called "Silver" or "Special" edition DX in the first place, other than the fact that it was rumored to sport the same 1.2GHz OMAP processor from Texas Instruments as the recently-released (and even-more-recently-launched) D2G. We'd have to imagine that a supposed Droid X Global would also benefit from a processor upgrade, but that's just speculation at this ...

    Verizon has finally introduced the Motorola Droid 2 Global through official channels -- over a week after the handset went on sale alongside the Droid Pro on the carrier's website. In one of the strangest rollouts in recent memory, the D2G quietly replaced the original Droid 2 in Big Red's lineup after literally months of leaks (remember when it was called the Droid 2 World Edition?), only now being acknowledged not by a press release but a short blurb on Facebook. Slotting in at the same price point -- $199.99 on two-year contract -- this revised Droid 2 brings a SIM slot with support for ...

    Verizon appears to have locked down the 850MHz and 1900MHz bands on its new Motorola Droid 2 Global handset, which essentially makes it impossible to use the device on AT&T stateside. Granted, Verizon clearly markets its worldphones as only capable of 900MHz and 1800MHz compatibility -- presumably to thwart exactly the type of network-hopping usage that the hardware technically facilitates -- so the end-user can't really complain of false advertising. Still, the temptation to use worldphones on domestic GSM networks is a strong one, and phones like the Windows Mobile-powered Touch Pro 2 ...

    The Droid 2 Global isn't yet officially available, but some customers are reportedly getting their orders early -- and some of them are already hard at work seeing what kind of trouble they can get into. Apparently the Droid 2 Global is similar enough to phones that are already available that many of the same rooting techniques work on it without modification. Some users are reporting issues with the "SuperOneClick" method, and are advising going with the "on phone" method mentioned in this post at DroidForums.net. In addition to root permissions, Koush's recovery image for the Droid 2 ...

    It turns out that the Droid Pro and Droid 2 Global, both world phones, can support the 850/1900 UMTS bands. That means that if you can unlock either of these devices, you can slip in your AT&T SIM card, and use it as if they were native to the AT&T network. In this past, this has successfully been achieved with the Verizon Touch Pro2, the Tour, and several others. This is great news for those that are on AT&T that want to be able to use either of these two devices, but naturally, it's going to cost you. You can either buy the devices directly from Verizon and try to get them to unlock it ...
