Droid getting a quick, minor OTA update?

Chris Ziegler

It seems there are a handful of Droid owners reporting in forums today that they're receiving over-the-air updates to their precious handsets -- and no, before you ask, it's sadly not the Android 2.1 bump that we've been promised. Actually, it's unclear exactly what this particular update is doing, but early leads suggest that it improves support for the Facebook app in the Marketplace -- users who'd previously been unable to download the latest version are now able to do so. We'll keep an eye on the situation, and naturally, drop us a line in comments if you've got any insight on the sitch.
