Verizon Upgrades the OS for Motorola Droid
The new system will let the smartphone user to benefit of a faster phone and the companies which are using these models for their employees or managers will be also happy with this phone, because its improved business capabilities make it one of the best at this time. In fact, a survey revealed the fact that a lot of people are very satisfied with Motorola smartphones, some of them declaring that they prefer these phones instead of iPhones. The iPhone in return has the advantage that both the software and hardware components are produced by the same manufacturer. When speaking of Droid, the hardware is designed and produced by Motorola and the software comes from different other manufacturers in collaboration with Motorola.
The companies will benefit of new Gmail facilities and a whole new Microsoft Exchange. This news comes from the same eWeek news website. A business phone could not be a business phone if it would not have a WiFi hotspot. Now that the Android 2.2 version will be launched to open source, everybody is wondering what smartphones will benefit of this Froyo system first and when this will happen. The fact that Verizon is planning to upgrade their smartphones manufactured by Motorola has not been yet confirmed by Verizon. The news was reported by eWeek, which transmitted further the information from droidforums.net.
The Motorola Droid smartphone was released by Motorola together with Verizon, having the Android 2.0 operating system. This was some of the first phones that used another system coming from a different software manufacturer than Microsoft or Apple. The same website that released the information that the Droid X will be upgrated in August 2010, droidforums.net, states also the Droid X smartphone will be released to the large audience on July 15. So, the phone must be first released and only after that upgrated. It is curious why Motorola chosen to release the phone and only after that to let Verizon to upgrade it, instead of releasing a phone already upgrated. The phone will cost 199 dollars, with 100 dollars rebate.
Google has already began to use the new Android 2.2 version on its Nexus One smartphone in June 2010. Sprint, another Wireless carrier and telecommunications company had promised to enhance their smartphones with this new system. The targeted phone in the Sprint’s case was HTC Evo 4G. Also, HTC Droid Incredible is rumoured to be chosen for this upgrade, but HTC isn’t saying a word. Another futuristic news refers to Google Music which will be launched on devices using Android 3.0 operating system. This system or Gingerbread, the other name of it, will be released in october 2010. If Google wants to use the new Android 2.2 version, which was recently released, the date for revealing the new system, in October, seems a little odd, taking into account that there are smartphones which don’t even use yet the 2.2 version. The best thing is to wait for Google’s decisions, because they know best what to do and when to do it, with their products and services.11
