Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread update for the Motorola Droid Pro handsets is now being rolled out. Last week we reported that Motorola has done compiling the Gingerbread update for Droid line up but it was up to Verizon to approve it and rollout. And looks like the Gingerbread update for Motorola Droid X is also underway as we were promised last week along with the Droid Pro.
The new Gingerbread update for the Motorola Droid Pro will bring the new MOTOBLUR UI which we saw in the recently released Motorola Droid X2. This will update the current Android 2.2 version of the Droid Pro to Android 2.3.3. Note that it isn’t the Android 2.3.4 version that the current Nexus One and Nexus S users are enjoying with “Google Talk Video Chat” support. Motorola Droid Pro however doesn’t include a front-facing camera and hence the video chatting doesn’t really make sense. The other improvements include a new homescreen manager, app grouping and new keyboard.
If you own a Motorola Droid Pro, check your System Updates page to see if it is available for your handset. The build number for the Android 2.3.3 update is 4.5.1-110-VNS-11.

I got up yesterday morning and looked at my DX, but no advisory for GB, so I went to System Updates and there it was. I did the install, but then some of the icons were frozen and finally the DX was completely locked up. So, I took out the battery, went to my job (sub-teacher part retired) and rebooted. It came on and all was fine until I realized the hard buttons were not lighting. I shut it down and now all seems well.
I always liked my DX, but now I love it. The only thing I can comment on, at this point, is I’m not seeing more battery life. It’s fast, smooth and much more useable. I really missed copy and paste and that’s now installed and I’m already using it.
