Earlier this week, Android 2.3 Gingerbread became available to Droid X owners online, as a tethered manual install. For some, manual updates are a walk in the park, and for others, a complete nightmare. Anyone’s whose impatience led to a bricked phone knows exactly what I’m talking about. Luckily, Motorola‘s Droid X will be receiving an OTA (over-the-air) update to get Android 2.3 Gingerbread, starting today.
Features of the updated OS aren’t anything too spectacular, when compared to the jump from Eclair to Froyo, but they’re not snub-worthy either. Android 2.3 Gingerbread includes faster navigation, a customizable dock, and a revamped camera application, so if any of that sounds worth your while, an update to Android 2.3 is that much easier, as of today.
