When Verizon’s Droid X received its update to Gingerbread, we hoped it would mean smooth sailing for the rest of the carriers high-end handsets from Motorola on their path to Android 2.3. A Gingerbread “soak test” followed shortly for the Droid 2 Global, but a few weeks later the update has yet to rollout to the general public. So what gives?
According to a report by DroidLife, Verizon hasn’t been all that pleased with the quality of the updates being provided by Motorola. Bugs uncovered in the Android 2.3 upgrade for the Droid X have led the carrier to reject the current round of updates prepped for the Droid family until Motorola can work out the kinks. This includes the Droid 2, Droid X2, and Droid Pro (which had its own flirt with Gingerbread last month). Motorola is apparently hard at work getting the updates up to standard, going so far as to assign new members to the teams working on the Gingerbread builds. Still, there is no telling when their labors will actually result in the final release of Android 2.3 for Moto’s Droid lineup.
