You may remember that earlier on this week we informed you that official Android 2.3 Gingerbread updates were finally on the way for the Motorola Droid X, Droid Pro and Droid 2 handsets. Well we have some even better news for you now, the Droid X update is coming at the end of this week.

The news follows various leaks about the forthcoming Gingerbread updates mentioned above, and as a result of this, Verizon has now come out officially and stated that the first update will be given to the Droid X.

You’ll be pleased to know that it will be made available this Friday, 27th May and it will be an OTA update weighing in at 112MB on your Droid X. The official build number will move to 4.5.596.MB810 and key changes include things like the Gingerbread UI enhancements (obviously), a handy download manager app, geotagging, improved battery life via Bluetooth, autofocus camera improvements and much more.

You can view the full list of changes in Verizon’s official document over at Droid Life here. Sadly, no news on when Gingerbread will be hitting the Droid Pro and Droid 2, but we’ll let you know as soon as Verizon make that official too – hopefully it will be next week!
