DROID2 Global Gingerbread Available “Soon After” DROID3 Launches

The Gingerbread update for the DROID2 Global was primed and ready to rock back on June 15, but for reasons we have been led to believe were due to bugs that needed to be worked out by Motorola, it was pulled.  Some conspiracy theorists would argue against that after seeing this note from a D3 training document that just popped up.

Would Verizon and Moto really hold back 2.3 to make the D3 look a little more appealing?  Not likely.  In fact, no where in that note does it mention that as a reason, nor does it mention that the D2G’s GB is even ready.  It’s “expected” to be ready which means they still have work to do on it.  Also, if Moto is holding back updates to launch their newest slide-out with the newest software available, why’d they already give it to the DROIDX and skip the DX2?  Exactly.

To help out the D3 side of the argument though, they did release the original DROID as the first with 2.0 and the DROID2 as the first on Verizon with 2.2, so they could try to do the same with this phone.  Although, it would make most of us DX owners a little uncomfortable to see them running around bragging about 2.3 on a phone when we’ve all had it for weeks.  The D3 is launching with a newer version of Blur though, so…who knows.

What we do know is that the GB builds currently available from Moto are filled with bugs – and once they get them all worked out, they’ll be made available to their entire lineup of 2010 devices including the D2, D2G, Pro and DX2.

And enough rambling from me for one night.

Cheers nessa!

    I intended to write you this bit of word to be able to say thanks over again considering the beautiful tips you’ve contributed on this site. It is simply surprisingly open-handed with people like you to deliver extensively all that a few people could have advertised for an electronic book in making some profit for themselves, especially since you might have done it if you decided. The guidelines additionally worked as the easy way to know that most people have a similar fervor like my personal own to learn way more on the subject of this issue. Certainly there are a lot more pleasurable periods up front for many who scan your blog.

    Based on your comment “… we do know is that the GB builds currently available from Moto are filled with bugs…” it is clear that moto should stay clear from developing software and completely scrap blur.

    Think about it, Google hires elite computer scientists, real computer programmers. Computer science and software is Google’s business. On the other hand Moto is composed of excellent electrical and hardware engineers that I’m sure they have good intentions at their attempts at developing android, but surely software programming is their second hat and sending out half baked goods out the door is bad business. Case in point the Xoom. Moto, scrap blur, unlock the bootloaders and pack your hardware with software that works -vanilla Android-

    What’s the frequency Kenneth?  LTE, YES?!?

    I only read a very small part of this post (honestly, it would be a waste if I read the whole thing), but I have had Gingerbread on my original Droid for months now. There’s no reason Motorola and Verizon should not have gotten these updates out months ago, considering that a kid in a dorm room is more than capable of doing so.

    Also, YAY for stock unlocked phones.

    Im sorry but 2.3 isn’t great on DROIDX. DROIDX wasn’t built to handle a version that complex. It would be nice if they would test it more completely before sending it to the public. Ego needs to dim just a few feet.

    • lil nuffin

      You don’t want GB via V until they get it fixed up.  For cereals.

    There needs to be some sort of easy reference chart with upcoming phones and their possible release dates. The chart can be updated as new info becomes available and then slapped with a “CONFIRMED” sticker once the phone has been announced.

    Motorola being the major company that they are should’ve had this out months ago

    • Therobotcow

      but if that new version on blur is what we’re getting it might be worth the wait
