Motorola Sending Email to DROID X Users About “Project” [Gingerbread?]


Reports have flown in from you guys regarding an email sent to you from Matt of Motorola regarding the Motorola DROID X. They speak of a project they’re working on and are asking for users’ participation to help test and give feedback on it. We figured it could only mean one thing – Gingerbread.

That’s no confirmation of any sort, of course, but we can’t think of anything else Motorola would send an email about. Users will be restricted under NDA regarding the upgrade if they are selected, but we’re sure something will pop up before too long. Read on for the full email text. [Thanks _____!]

Dear Motorola Owners’ Forums member,

We are preparing a project for Droid X owners and would like to invite you to take part. We are now opening the project for registration.

Please click this link to take a short enrollment survey if you are interested. Please note that this is a confidential project under the terms of the Motorola Feedback Network. Do not post any details or information about this project on any public sites.

At this time, there are few details to share, but if you register we’ll provide more information. If you have any questions, please e-mail me here.

Thanks again, and we hope to be in contact with you soon.

– Matt

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. What part of ” Do not post any details or information about this project on any public sites.” wasn’t clear?

    1. Technically, no details about the project are published. We just know that there is a project.

      1. I think by them saying do not post any details of this covers EVERYTHING, do you really not understand this, or are you just replying for the argument factor??  I know when I tell my child not to discuss ANYTHING on a subject they can only talk to me about it and not to anyone else.


        1. ” I know when I tell my child not to discuss ANYTHING on a subject they can only talk to me about it and not to anyone else.”
          You sound like a molester. But either way, when a corporation tells me what I can or can’t tell people, they can blow me.

    2.  If they didn’t want anyone to post it, they would have sent it to only Motorola Employees or people who have signed NDA’s with the company.

      1. Actually, the people that received it are part of the Motorola Feeback Network and there are (I believe) non-disclosure clauses associated with joining that program and participating.

        Whether this particular communication is covered or not is kind of unknown…it’s general enough that they may not be overly concerned with it being generally known (as Quentyn points out).

        However, after signing up for this particular project specifically as offered in the email, the NDA definitely applies.

        *disclaimer, I did *not* sign up for this particular project.

    3. Get over yourself moron

      1. Would you prefer moto stopped asking for user participation? Because that’s what happens when you take advantage of something good. The few shitbags ruining it for the rest of the population.

  2. oh shuut uup… if you don’t want to see it don’t read it? 

  3.  Why does Motorola insist on being so secretive about everything?  From that email, you’d think national security was at risk or something.

    1. It’s the thing to do as a big business. Gives the people an impression that what you are doing is very important. Oh, I guess it’s how the gubmint works, too; seeing as how it is pretty much a big business nowadays.

  4.  I don’t know what they’re farting around about. The most current version of Gingerbread (.595) works great.

  5. It can’t be Gingerbread… I ate it all the other day. Maybe it’s one of the following:
    1. Honeycomb-ified Droid X
    2. An upgrade program to change out the 3G chip to the LTE 4G chip
    3. Ice-Cream (hey I’m dreaming with all these)
    4. Support for hooking the X to a laptop dock, like the Atrix (this dream is getting funky)
    5. Unlocked bootloader (Ok, time to wake up)

  6. Nice, beautiful song!

  7. its a great way to keep delaying this update.  call it a secret project, setup a test group.  keep burning time Verizon. way to go.

  8. I too am rocking GB build .595 and love it.  No sense in waiting for VZW to get off of their collective asses and release it to the public.
