Droid 2 Global and Droid Pro Android 2.3 updates pushing now


There is a difference between hoping & just being delusional though. LOL!

People say the exact same thing when any new Android version is released but it's never going to happen for a device to completely skip an update & go to the newest.

NO ONE is going to get ICS (officially) before the Galaxy Nexus is released & only a few weeks or month after will the Nexus S (& possibly the Nexus One) get it. No other device will get it for probably a few months. It's been that way since before Eclair (2.1).

Yeah same here. I got that update months ago, I did it manually. I wonder if its the same version. If its a different one, will we get the update?

Well if it's the same version that my mom got weeks ago for her Droid Pro it's 2.3.3. I checked her phone today after I read this and it says there is no new updates.
