Just yesterday, Verizon announced that the official Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the Droid Charge was ready and will be pushed out sometime in the near future. Although Big Red made the announcement, they failed to include a changelog to give us an idea what to expect, until today. Verizon posted the full changelog this morning and it looks like the Gingerbread update will do the Charge some good.
The update should improve the device immensely and a few noticeable differences will be a couple of UI tweaks and improved speed and stability. The changelog says that improvements have been made to the GPS so I am hoping the device will not take 5 minutes anymore to lock on to a signal. A new download manager, “running apps” tab, and visual voicemail has also been added as well as improvements to the phones camera and sound output. Overall, if you have been having issues with your DROID Charge, I think this update will suit you well.
The new build is number EP4 and according to the rumor you can look for the update beginning November 29th. I have a feeling this will roll out over a short period of time so be patient, I too have a DROID Charge so I will be keeping a close eye on this one and will let you know as soon as the update rolls out.
Go here for more official details and you can check out the full changelog after the cut.
