Motorola Droid gets new update -- and no, it's not Gingerbread

Chris Ziegler
Good news, original Droid owners: Verizon still hasn't forgotten about you, delivering a mild update today that includes a handful of enhancements and fixes. Notably, you'll be getting updated Twitter and Gmail apps in ROM plus updated Amazon and News / Weather widgets and a bunch of improvements to the phone's built-in Exchange ActiveSync support. Sure, it's not Gingerbread -- but c'mon, now, were you really expecting Verizon to announce craziness like that today? Look for the over-the-air update shortly if you haven't received it already.

*Verizon has acquired AOL, Engadget's parent company. However, Engadget maintains full editorial control, and Verizon will have to pry it from our cold, dead hands.
