Well it’s not Ice Cream Sandwich which I know a lot, if not all of you were hoping the Droid Razr’s next update was going to be. Instead you’ll be getting a newer version of Gingerbread. It looks as if the Changelog is quite long on this update that will be coming anytime now from Verizon.

Applications:

  • Mobile Hotspot will now successfully allow other devices to connect to all Internet websites.
  • Improvements in the Mobile Hotspot security. + VZ Navigator® has been updated with the latest 3D map improvements.

Visual Voice Mail Updates:

  • Visual Voice Mail messages can be marked as read.
  • Visual Voice Mail message playback resumes when audio is switched to speaker.
  • Visual Voice Mail will successfully subscribe or unsubscribe while connected with Wi-Fi.
  • Successfully press back key after playback in Visual Voice Mail without error.

Data Connectivity:

  • Improved stability of data connectivity after Airplane Mode is disabled. + Improved data throughput performance in low-signal 4G environments.

Device Operation:

  • Improved Battery life when using Phone Book Access Profile (PBAP) Bluetooth® headsets.
  • Successfully save multimedia ringtones.
  • Favorite Contacts widget has been updated.
  • Improved device stability when moving between home screen panels.
  • Email icon has been updated for improved visibility.
  • When performing an Over the Air (OTA) update, the display will correctly show the remaining download time.
  • CMAS (Commercial Mobile Alert Service) feature has been added.

Aside from getting Android 2.3.6, you’ll also get some VCast apps now pre-installed plus, a.k.a. bloatware, MotoCast installation steps have been improved for ease of use.
