Verizon Releases Update For Motorola Droid X

Verizon has released an update for the Motorola Droid X phone that adds some great new functionality.  The update is, confusingly enough, called 2.3.340.  But, despite the name, it’s not Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which was also in the news today.  This is strictly a Verizon update – or so far as I can see.  You can find it and download and installation instructions on Verizon’s Droid X update page.

Just a quick word of warning for those who don’t have a PDF reader installed – despite Verizon’s endorsement of Adobe Reader in that screenshot, I recommend using Foxit reader which is MUCH more secure and also free.

The new features and updates include:

The download and installation is pretty painless as long as you follow the instructions.  You should be back up and running in under an hour and probably well under that.
