Just a few short days after the flagship Motorola Droid X Android phone is released, it looks like Motorola and Verizon Wireless will be pushing out an OTA update soon enough that will bring some added improvements. Slated to begin rolling out today, Monday, July 19th.
According to BGR, the improvements include:
-Improved battery charging status indicator.
-Smoother transition for camera and camcorder functions.
-Redesign of weather widget icons.
-Faster Exchange ActiveSync® email loading.
-Streamlined organization of newly downloaded applications.
-Organized favorite contacts by call count.
-Updated Bluetooth® connection for enhanced video sharing experience.
-Coordinated date and time across phone displays.
-Cleaner looking status bar for GPS symbol.
-Improved sync capabilities for 3G Mobile Hotspot.
-Faster Visual Voice Mail loading.
-Take advantage of the enhanced, preloaded My Verizon application.
-Preloaded Amazon Kindle® application lets you read Kindle books on your AndroidTM phone, including thousands of free books.
As the Droid X already comes pre-loaded with a Blockbuster app for media consumption, the inclusion of the Kindle app will have the handset match the T-Mobile Samsung Vibrant, which has a Sumsung Media Hub app for rentals (though not available at this time) and also a pre-loaded Kindle app.
Android Froyo 2.2 is still slated for the device and Verizon and Motorola has promised that it will be coming later this summer. Android 2.2 will bring with it support for Adobe Flash 10.1 Mobile, which will give users a desktop-class browsing experience and nearly full compatibility with the Flash-encoded Internet videos, games, and interactive content.
