    There is a new update, version 5.6.890, rolling out now for the Droid 3. The update brings with it a number of bug fixes and improved battery life, but it also brings some added functionality. The primary new added feature is Google Talk with Video. In order to grab the update now, go into Settings>About phone>System updates. Enjoy!

    do you know if you have to be stock and unrooted? in order for this to work? i tried it last night and it failed after rebooting to the software install page (page with the box and the android guy) it just went away and than booted up all the way and said that the upgrade failed.

    Thanks.

    Weird...I've had mine for 2 weeks, and had Google Talk with video for at least 1 of those 2 weeks. Could mine have shipped with the update? (It's not rooted yet, btw). I can say for sure I never woke up to find it announcing an update. I'm pretty sure one didn't get installed while I've had it.

    Oh, I checked and yep the version number is 5.6.890. FWIW it's worth I get AMAZING battery life. Some days I go home and still have 80% left.

    Yes, I've seen one or more other people saying that some new phones already have the update on them.

    You are a BIG, FAT TEASE!!! Yeah, sure, just leave us in double-suspense. :(

    So hey I'm almost 14 days into my Radio Shack 30-day return period. Can you at least PM me the thing, and I'll SWEAR not to share it???
