Motorola and Verizon have started rolling out a minor update the Droid 2 handset. Like most maintenance releases, the update features general improvements, few new features, and the requisite bug fixes.
Chief among the improvements are better battery life, faster location tracking using GPS, and quicker hand-off between Wi-Fi and 3G for data connections. Other, less noticeable changes include the ability to view the weather widget in landscape and portrait mode and stream videos found in the help center application.
New enhancements found in the update include the capability to backup and export contacts to microSD cards and the option to assign pictures to contacts using the phone's gallery. Keeping with Verizon's recent update tradition, it is also installing its VZ Navigator software as part of the v2.3.20 update.
