Verizon Motorola Droid 4 Gets A Software Update

Do you still remember the Motorola Droid 4 smartphone? Yes, we are talking about the same device which was announced at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2012 in Las Vegas. The Motorola Droid 4 is a powerful smartphone which comes with a 4 inch qHD display, 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 8 megapixel rear camera and much more. However, the device runs on the old Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) Operating System.

Verizon Wireless will soon roll out a new software update for this device. It will be the first software update for the Motorola Droid 4 smartphone after its launch in February. Sadly, this update will not bump up the Android 2.3 to the latest Android 4.0. However, the latest update brings improvements to Wi-Fi connectivity, improved text message delivery, improved battery life and so on. Check out the complete changelog below.
