The software update for the Droid X is just a regular maintenance update that aims at fixing some bugs in the current build. The update also fixes the annoying virtual keyboard freezing issue with the Droid X, post the Gingerbread update.

However, the update for the Droid 3 packs in a lot of enhancements, including Google Talk with video chat. There are a lot of other enhancements including improved GPS performance and battery life. Other changes include improved camera shutter speed and addition of multi-shot capability, new version of Swype, and improved audio clarity. Verizon has also made full use of this opportunity to pre-load more bloat ware on the handset.

The Droid X software update carries the version number 4.5.605, while the update for the Droid 3 carries the version number 5.6.890. Both the updates are live now, and will automatically be pushed to Droid X and 3 owners in the coming weeks.

Alternatively, users can manually pull the update from Verizon’s server by going to the Settings-> About Phone, and selecting the Software update option.

    I guess Droid X software will make phone performance much more improving. Can you recommend me where I can find original new update in the net except Amazon? Thanks in advance.
