Verizon pushing out one last update for the original Motorola Droid, mostly just security updates

 

The original Motorola Droid might be two years old and there’s dozen of Droid-branded phones since then, but it’s still not forgotten. Verizon is planning on sending out a new update for the device. It’s mostly just security fixes and it’s said to be “essentially invisible in terms of device operation”. Since the Moto Droid is still running Froyo, it missed out on the security updates that came with Gingerbread, hopefully this update will patch up some of those holes.

 

Verizon Wireless is pleased to announce a new software update, FRK76, for your DROID by Motorola. With this update, your device will be upgraded to Android 2.2.3 and you will enjoy improvements in browser security that help block rogue/unauthorized certificates.

 

There’s no word on exactly when the update is coming, but since the Verizon support page is up, it shouldn’t be long. Perhaps a week or two at the most.
