Motorola DROID 3 Soak Test Begins


The DROID 2’s younger brother DROID 3 seems to be joining the soak test party. DROID 3 owners have been notified of an impending update. Again, it’s always hard to tell what these updates bring without a full changelog. As a general rule of thumb we try not to hold our breath for an upgrade to the next major version of Android. Considering Verizon didn’t list the DROID 3 on its initial list of devices to receive Ice Cream Sandwich, we definitely would shy away from getting too excited.

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. Droid 3/Droid x2 users got screwed.. 8 month old phones with no upgrade, makes you worry about buying anything but a nexus..

    1. Droid x2 only has 512 of memory… Makes sense why its not getting it to me

      1.  You know the Nexus S has 512MB of memory, right?

    2. is the droid 3 really 8 months old ? i thought it was only like 6, but yea a dual core phone with plenty of ram not getting the update, they could have made a mistake on the list because that just sounds foolish  

  2. I had never heard of soak testing before.  I had to look it up.  At first I thought it was how long you could soak the phone in water before it would break.

  3. The update is likely to be the same 2.3.6 software as the Droid 4. However, I hear the Droid 3 port of ICS by the community is coming along quite well, so the device may see Android 4 yet.

  4. Moto is dragging ass on this one. I wonder if the soak has started and they found major problems with it.
