    It is much more likely, from what Ive heard, that Google is more or less skipping 2.3 to push out a 2.3+honeycomb (a.k.a 2.4) variant that incorporates dual core optimizations with optimizations for single core phones to run dual core apps.

    The fear is that single core phones will have major issues running apps that will be developed to run natively on a dual core.

    ^ what he said..

    There's only one phone running 2.3 in any official form and that's the Nexus S. Everything else is going to skip to 2.4.

    i highly doubt the droid 2 will get gingerbread officially. The droid 2 will reach its "end of life" AKA discontinued next month. Verizon isnt going to waste their time/money rolling out an update for a phone thats going to be discontinued within a few weeks.

    im almost willing to bet the droid 2 wont see anything official past froyo.

    the droid x is also being discontinued next month too so it most likely wont receive gingerbread either.

    lol there is no way they are going to give up on the D2 and especially not the DX, after the D1 the DX is motorola's best selling phone. why would they piss off so many people off by not updating the phone?

    i believe we will see an update but who knows how long....

    because both of those phones are scheduled to be EOL/discontinued at the end of march.

    once a device reached EOL there are no more updates regardless on how many sold.

    I'd like to think that all these people under a one or even two year contract get some recognition and support regardless of the manufacturer's EOL. Verizon wants to make money, money comes from customers, pissed off customers dont give money.

    Or are there really 26 million smartphone users who actually upgrade to the latest and greatest, out-of-pocket, every single time something new pushes their model into the grave?

    **** That

    i'm pretty sure the droid 1 got updates well after its end of life. p3droid has a gingerbread build for his development droid x so i'm sure it will come to both phones eventually.
