Verizon pushes out first Droid 2 update, doesn't cure signal woes

Chris Ziegler

As is becoming almost customary with high-profile smartphone releases these days, Verizon and Motorola have already gotten around to releasing the Droid 2's first over-the-air firmware update just days after its initial launch on the 12th. There's not much here -- the most important fix seems to be that you can scroll text and picture messages now -- and most notably, the severe signal strength issues we saw in our review unit don't seem to have been addressed here (and we've verified that after updating). All we can hope at this point, we suppose, is that it's squared away by the time the R2-D2 version or the dual-mode version launches... whichever comes first.
