Motorola Lets Loose Droid 2 Global Gingerbread Update

Motorola kicked-off September by finally releasing an official Gingerbread update for last year’s Droid 2. This was some much-needed good news, following a summer of missteps when it came to getting the promised Gingerbread updates out to many older members of the Droid clan. With the Droid 2 taken care of, it only seemed logical that we would see the Droid 2 Global soon tapped to get an update of its own. Less than a week later, Motorola has now announced that distribution of the D2G’s Gingerbread has begun.

So far, there are no indications that we could be looking at a repeat of June’s false start, when Verizon looked ready to start sending a D2G Gingerbread update out at any moment, only for Motorola to step up and announce that no such release was imminent. Since then, it seems like Motorola’s largely worked out whatever issues it was having with Verizon and update approval, and things have been going more smoothly.

As per usual, the update is scheduled for distribution in stages; no word on how long it might take to reach everyone. In the meantime, you can check out the release notes up on Verizon’s support page for the phone, detailing what you can expect post-update.
