An update for the DROID Charge looks like it has been approved by Verizon and is just awaiting their pressing of the “Go” button. The new 9.9MB EE4 build will introduce a slew of bug fixes, but whenever we see something mentioning better 4G LTE connectivity, it needs to be highlighted. And I guess we always like it when call quality and GPS tracking have improved as well. Overall the update should be considered pretty minor, since it’s not Gingerbread.
Update: Looks like the update could be rolling out now…
+ Improved battery life when placing a voice call.
+ Easily return calls within the call log entry by pressing the phone icon.
+ Outgoing calls from the Visual Voice Mail application will be placed properly.
+ Pressing and holding the ‘1’ key will automatically route the user to the Voice Mail service (*86).

+ Improvements in the Email and Calendar sync.
Additional Device Features
