Over the weekend, we learned that the Motorola Atrix 4G will soon be taking part in a pre-release update soak test, and now it looks the the DROID X2 will soon be getting a similar treatment. An email was recently sent out to members of the Motorola Feedback Network indicating that several thousand DX2 owners will soon be selected to test out a finalized update before its rolled out to regular folk like you and I. There's no mention of the update contains, but many feel that this may be the X2's helping of Gingerbread. You can find text from the email below.
So when can DROID X2 owners expect this mystery update to roll out to the public? Tough to say with any certainty, but it wouldn't be a shock to see the new software to be pushed out in a couple of weeks. If you just can't wait that long, you could always mosey on over to Motorola's site and sign up to be a MFN member. As they say, membership does have its privileges.
Several thousand Droid X2 owners will receive the update. Only a percentage will be Motorola Feedback Network (MFN) members. If you sign up, your phone will be included.
This is what we call a "pre-launch soak." We'll watch what happens for about two days, just to make sure there is nothing wrong with the update or the update process.
You will be trialing FINAL software. This is not a beta test. In most cases, this is the software that will be released, unless we find an extremely serious issue. Your feedback will help us identify issues that may require a later fix, and help us prepare others for getting used to the new software. Your feedback will be extremely valuable and we do hope you will take part!
When you receive the update, we would appreciate your quick feedback. You will be provided a link to a private community. All of your comments and questions should be posted there, and that's where we'll provide more information.
We will also distribute one or more surveys to get your evaluation of the process and the software.
