Motorola DROID X2 software update focuses on maintenance

On the 12th of March, we reported that the DROID X2 by Motorola for Verizon would be receiving a software update soon, as made evident by a soak test that the manufacturer was planning on holding for the handset. Details of that particular update have become public courtesy of Verizon, and to no one’s surprise the update is meant primarily for maintenance, and isn’t a major update by any means.

Here is a list of the software tweaks and enhancements you can expect to notice after you update your DROID X2:

  • Verizon Video and VZ Navigator® 3D City are now preloaded.
  • A Google Security Patch has been added to improve the security level.
  • Purchased ringtones are now able to be saved and set.
  • Device is enabled with the Wireless Alerting System.
  • Shortcut names can be updated and saved.
  • The keyboard Input Auto Error Correction setting defaults to off.
  • The update will bring your DROID X2 to software version 1.3.418.MB870 and it measures in at 35MB. Not the biggest update ever, but any update is worth installing (as long as it doesn’t break your phone). There is no word from Verizon as to when this update will begin rolling out to owners, but considering it usually doesn’t take long between Verizon’s public reveal and the actual release, you shouldn’t have to wait too long.
