We're totally cognizant of the fact that we're going to need to call out when updates aren't Gingerbread
for a while, so let us be clear: the Droid X
update that's being pushed out right now from Verizon is still very much based on Android 2.2
(despite the confusing build version, 2.3.340). That said, this feels like a pretty awesome boost, featuring a whole host of bug fixes along with a flip-to-mute option ("turning control" in Nokia parlance), preloaded Flash 10.1, and both EA's Madden and a new MyVerizon app in ROM. It's getting pushed now, so enjoy, you crazy, fun-loving Droid X users, you.
