    Why shouldn't it? It's just as deserving as any other phone.

    The keyword was next. There are other Moto phones that have better sales and some might ask why the Pro is priority be hind the X series.

    The Droid X already has GB and I am sure the X 2 will have it around the same time all Pro users get it. Don't even see the point is worrying about it Moto is going to do whatever they want, it does not matter what device we think should get what first. I think the Pro is being targeted because they are still trying to secure the business market from BB's.

    i think the pro got gingerbread because they just released the xprt with gingerbread for sprint (new phones should have the latest updates). no droid 2 global equivalent came out (yet) for verizon or a different carrier. in addition, they wanted the blackberry users in order to increase the popularity of the phone.

    they released a buggy, unstable phone (compared to the droid 2) and so they updated it to gingerbread quicker.

    It has not been updated yet and wont be for another 3 weeks... very few people received the ota and that ota ud was not a genuine moto gingerbread update. It was not released by Moto.

    Yeah all updates are not released by Moto they are actually sent directly to our phones from Apple to try and keep the OS down so we won't be better than them. I thought everyone knew that.

    Yeah dude they totally cracked the 2048 bit encrypted signed keys.

    Oh no wait, they held a gun to the moto engineers and had them turn it over.

    Yes that is exactly what I am saying they have done. Apparently you are only susceptible to it if u manually pull the ota ud. They advise u to wait for the notification that it has been pushed to your phone. Its amazing what people can do hacking these days. I have a feeling its only going to get worse before it gets better. Better security features are being developed but sure to bypassed soon after release. Vicious circle.
