Software Updates Are Being Released for Verizon’s DROID handsets
A software update has been released for three handsets in Verizon’s DROID lineup DROID 4, DROID RAZR MAXX and DROID RAZR. This is only an enhancement/bug-fix update, so users still won’t get the Ice Cream Sandwich just yet. An update with serial number 6.12.181 is delivered to DROID RAZR MAXX, which improves WI-Fi hotspots, battery life, visual voice mail performance, text message delivery as well as fixing a few bugs. Another update numbered 6.12.219 brings better test messaging, Motocast widget, better battery life and Bluetooth fixes for DROID 4.
Depending on network condition in your area, the update process should take less than 20 minutes to complete. It’s a good idea to completely backup your data and then leave your phone alone during the actual update process to avoid unnecessary problems.
In March, Verizon announced the planned update for Android 4.0, which will add new features such as improved camera, new user interface, Face Unlock and Android Beam. A new DROID handset, the Incredible 4G LTE is arriving in the Verizon’s network and it comes with Android 4.0.
