Anybody holding out for the Gingerbread update for the Motorola DROID 2 Global will need to practice a bit of patience, as leaked documents pertaining to the release of the Droid 3 suggest that the update to Android 2.3 won’t rollout until after the successor device has launched. It’s just another wrinkle in a saga that began when the Motorola DROID X received its update to Gingerbread, quickly followed by a “soak test” for the Droid 2 Global. We had hoped this would mean the update would come to all D2G handsets soon after, but here we sit weeks later with nothing to show.
Yesterday we learned Verizon rejected the latest round of Android 2.3 updates from Motorola for being riddled with bugs and glitches, and the revelation that the Droid 2 Global won’t see Gingerbread until after the Droid 3 launches has us thinking there is still work to be done. Of course, VZW could be holding off on the update in an attempt to steer people towards the upcoming handset, but that seems unlikely. The latest rumors suggest the Droid 3 will launch sometime in the first half of July, but that hardly has us hopeful that the Droid 2 will be getting an update in the same time period.
