Verizon will issue an update for the HTC Droid DNA in the near term that tackles some of the more frustrating user problems encountered by customers so far.

In a blog post, Big Red promises to update the HTC Droid DNA. Sorry, but this isn't the Android 4.2.2 update currently rolling out to the Nexus line; this is far less ambitious.

Once installed, the handset will benefit from better connectivity and added functionality. There is very little new in the software, but most of the features outlined are listed with "improvements."

While the phrasing is opaque, the 2.04.605.2 710RD update should address issues plaguing hotspot, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth connections.

Additional details include corrected time stamps for incoming text messages, enhanced Recent Apps functionality, and better audio quality for wired headsets.

Verizon subscribers can manually attempt to install the update by navigating to Settings > Software update > Status on their phone.
