    We first got word about the Motorola Droid X update a few hours ago, now Verizon has updated the support page for the original Motorola Droid to include a new update as well. While the update doesn't include any of the new features from Android 2.3 or Madden NFL, it does include a handful of improvements as well as the new gmail user interface. Check out the complete list below:

    Improvements:
    • Updated Twitter® application with new authentication support.
    • Updated Amazon widget.
    • Updated News & Weather widget.

    Improvements to Microsoft® Exchange ActiveSync®:
    • Handles server-side inactivity timeouts of 34 minutes
    • or greater.
    • Continues to sync emails after a policy refresh.
    • Support for Exchange 2010 connections.
    Enhancements:
    • Added new Gmail® user interface

    I honestly don't use any of these I was hoping we would get the madden app like the droid x because that's the one game I wanted

    I got this update a few days ago and some of the things i noticed...

    Increase in battery life
    Better response in app drawer

    I don't use Twitter, Amazon, or News but I'm glad to see better performance out of my phone. Solid update in my opinion even though I wished for other things from this update.

    Guess this definitely means we're not getting GB. That sucks, I was looking forward to getting that.

    You can pull the app from the. Zip for the new update and install it on your phone. Should work just fine.

    Also, anyone who is rooted and running a custom rom should not take these updates. For one, the developers will most likely include the fixes in their roms (through proprietary files). But the big thing is that they like to try to plug exploits and put in new methods of stopping custom rom users, which makes it tougher to root.

    Well the D1 is still leading the airways in traffic volume by a large amount. I'd think they'd want to update the most used phone and the phone that put them on the map.

    You don't have to do anything - it will come. And they roll it out over weeks so don't worry.

    it doesnt mean we wont get gingerbread cause the droid x got the same little update the droid did and we know the droid x is getting gingerbread.Also a reason for them to give the droid gingerbread is becuase it is still the most used android phone out there by a very good margin.

    I've gotten phone calls a few times around renewal times. And they have generally been from Verizon resellers, not VZW corporate. I think there's something fishy... as they are trying to take my business from corporate sales. Pretty sure they are not supposed to do that, but who knows.

    As to the update, I've pretty much resigned myself to not getting any further "official" releases on my D1. Might take a look at this new update to see what it improves or not.

    Nothing in the update I really care to have.
    Stay with what I have right now. I have no complaints.

    Yes... but the hardware is seriously dated. (In this world, anything more than 4-6 months is old). The new things they are adding need more umph to run and I don't know that the D1 is going to have the needed horsepower to keep up.
