Global Software Update for the DROID 2 on the Way to Fix Bugs

By Posted 18 Dec 2010, 04:22

The Motorola Droid 2 is a mobile that is the 5th Droid phone to be released. Currently Verizon has exclusive rights to it. As do many phones do these days, the Droid runs on Android, the OS created by Google. The device is respectable and has a decent spec.

The Droid 2 has a 3.7” screen, 8GB of internal memory and it normally comes with an 8GB SDHC card, these are just a few of the specs. You can read the full specs directly from the Motorola website here.

This device has so many positives but of course, it has its negatives. There are some fundamental bugs with the device that happen when you do specific actions. An example of this is, whenever you power up the device it says “No Service”, this will change following the update. The device will no longer be resetting it’s self when changing from GSM/UMTS to the Global mode either. These are just some of the planned bug fixes, there are more including improved audio and a reduction in user interface lock-ups. Droid-life.com have an article that shows the software update sheet from Verizon, the update sheet shows what the improvements are, you can see it by clicking here.

Again, according to Kellex from over at droid-life.com the update will need to be done by going to Settings, then to About Phone, and finally System Updates to check for it. We don’t seem to have a release date for the update yet but we are hoping it comes very soon.

Have you been experiencing any of the problems that droid-life state? Is there anything that has been missed previously that you want in the update? Let us know in the comments below.
