Software update available for Moto Q: back up your data!

Software update available for Moto Q: back up your data!

We got a nice little note from Motorola this morning, letting us know that a free software update for the Q is now available. Much of the upgrade is centered around the Windows Mobile Messaging and Security Feature Pack, which brings direct-push technology, global address lookup, and enhanced security options. This release also adds dial-up networking (DUN) capabilities and improved browser navigation.

Current owners can download the update here. But wait, wait, wait. Before you do that, be sure to back up all your data, including music, pictures, ring tones, and screensavers, since all of this will be deleted during the update; you'll also have to reload any third-party software that you installed prior to this--guh, how annoying. That said, we're going to give it a try to see if it improves the Q's performance, so check back soon for an updated review.
