Gingerbread heading to Droid X, May 27th is the date (for some)

Motorola-Droid-X1-500x560
Even though the Droid X2 is out and ready to be purchased, Verizon still knows that it's an incredibly popular device. As such, the company has announced the availability of a Gingerbread update for the original Droid X starting tomorrow, May 27th. As usual, the software will be pushed out over a period of time to different waves of users, with the manual update being available on the first of June. 

Now, this is great. It really is. But it couldn't have been updated earlier? The fact is, skins stink. I find it incredibly hard to believe that Motorola hasn't heard the constant, horrible complaints about MOTOBLUR. And I find it even harder to believe that Motorola wouldn't want to please their customers. There was a time where they almost died, you know. This can't possibly be helping them, even though they're better now than they were. 

This obviously isn't a selling point for the original Droid X, especially since the second iteration promises Gingerbread really soon . . . with a Tegra 2 processor and a crazy-high res screen, to boot.
