Verizon Rolling out Android 2.3.4 for Droid X2 soon

Good news to all you Droid X2 owners! Looks like Verizon wants to give you a nice little update bringing you Android 2.3.4 with promises of fixing that annoying lock-up/restart problem when using the keyboard. The Verizon Moto Droid X2 support page has been updated (screenshot above) and the upcoming Build # is 1.2.380.MB870. The update is a healthy 55MB and no word on when Big Red will actually begin pushing it out but, rest assured, we will let you know as soon as it does. You can expect new features such as:

    I’m running Android 2.3.7 thanks to CyanogenMod. Why are these carriers, who have so much money, so far behind?

    I am running 2.3.4 as of Monday, 10/17. Everything is working well so far regarding the upgrade. However, skipping during mp3 playback in the Music app has not been fixed. If anything, it’s worse. I know it is not the mp3 files, because if I copy them to another device or my PC, they play just fine. Everything else is good, but this one is a fail.

    Just a SWAG, but, does the existence of the dual core processor make the port more difficult and time consuming?
