The worst part of the android operating system is the major delay in operating systems updates, but Gingerbread is FINALLY making its way around to the Droid X, Droid 2, Droid 2 Global and Droid 2 Pro.
The list of features in Android 2.3 Gingerbread update are impressive, with the addition of download manager, active app management, shortcuts, one-touch copy/paste, widgets, icons, app groups, updated calendar options, camera geotagging, improved email synching and camera auto-focus improvements.
Gingerbread 2.3 features also include user-interface refinements, audio effects, new media format support, and multiple-camera access.
It will take you approximately 20 to 40 minutes to download the software, depending on network conditions.
You can check for the update yourself on your Droid. From the main menu, Tap Menu> Tap Settings> Tap About phone> Tap System update> Tap Download.
When updating any Droid phone, be sure that your battery is at least 40% charged and that you have at least half an hour to wait for the process to complete. To be safe, you should also back up your contacts, photos, and note what software you had installed.
More details are available at the Verizon Droid X update support page.
