Hot on the heels of word that the Motorola Atrix 4G is about to get its Gingerbread "soak" test, we've now learned that the Motorola Droid X is about to get a soak of its own. Motorola's asking for a few thousand testers. MFN members are being contacted and asked to complete a survey, after which they may be accepted into the beta. We're not sure if it's going to be the Gingerbread update, but we've got a feeling that it will be. Here's the survey intro:
Several thousand Droid X2 owners will receive the update. Only a percentage will be Motorola Feedback Network (MFN) members. If you sign up, your phone will be included.
This is what we call a "pre-launch soak." We'll watch what happens for about two days, just to make sure there is nothing wrong with the update or the update process.
You will be trialing FINAL software. This is not a beta test. In most cases, this is the software that will be released, unless we find an extremely serious issue. Your feedback will help us identify issues that may require a later fix, and help us prepare others for getting used to the new software. Your feedback will be extremely valuable and we do hope you will take part!
When you receive the update, we would appreciate your quick feedback. You will be provided a link to a private community. All of your comments and questions should be posted there, and that's where we'll provide more information.
We will also distribute one or more surveys to get your evaluation of the process and the software.
So it looks like we'll be seeing this update -- whatever it is -- in the coming weeks. Huzzah!
