    The Motorola Droid might feel like it's getting a bit older after turning 1 year old last month (that's like 35 in cell phone years), but it's still holds the title as the most popular Android phone in the galaxy. If your worried about the end of life for software updates, your in for a treat. Motorola has just sent out an email to members of the Motorola Feedback Network announcing a pre-launch "soak" test. While we are crossing our fingers for an official Gingerbread version coming to the Droid, it could be simply an update to 2.2. Complete e-mail posted below:

    The pic used in the blog post was of the original announcement for FRG01B, with some changes made to it.

    No one is sure at this point whether or not this really IS 2.3; I for one have a feeling it might not be, and is more likely 2.2.1 (perhaps the FRG83 leak that is floating around). Just speculating, but I have a strange feeling i'm close to being correct.
