It was in late January that we reported about the original Motorola Droid Android 2.2.2 update is under testing from Motorola. Today, Droid-Life is reporting that Motorola and Verizon are done with all their tests, and will be releasing the OTA update to Droid owners today itself.
The FRG83G OTA update will update the Droid Android OS version to 2.2.2. The Android 2.2.2 was released by Google so as to fix the famous ‘SMS’ bug.
Here is the official change-log from the big Red itself -:
* Sporadic issues with unintended recipient list corrected for text, audio, picture, video and audio multimedia messages.
* Correct message populates when messaging application is quickly opened and accessed.
It is more or less certain that the Droid won’t get the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update. However, it is nice to see Motorola still releasing minor Android OS update a handset which is more than a year old now.
The Droid is the first handset in the market to get the Android 2.2.2 update, excluding the Nexus One. Other manufactures should learn from Motorola and release the Android 2.2.2 update for all their Android handsets.
The FRG83G update for the Droid weighs in at 3.4MB, and will be pushed to all Droid handsets beginning from today.
