Well this is certainly unexpected. The HTC Droid Eris for Verizon (remember the one that isn’t getting Android 2.2 Froyo and that seemed relegated to its current firmware) is receiving an OTA software update. We shouldn’t have to tell you it isn’t Froyo, but it does boost the software version to 2.41.605.6 and the radio to 2.42.01.04.27. The list of enhancements and tweaks includes:
- Improved Bluetooth connection to Mercedes-Benz E350 automobiles (random much?)
- New Twitter authentication
- Visually improved Received Signal Strength Indicator
- Pre-loaded Visual Voice Mail
- Sync-able Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 calendars
- MMS can now be sent with or without text, and devices on other carriers will now receive multimedia messages
As you can see from the above list, not a whole lot going for this update to get you too excited, but improvements it brings nonetheless. Anyone receive it yet?
Good news for long-suffering Nexus One owners – Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread has finally begun rolling out for the original Nexus and its big brother, the Nexus S over-the-air. For the Nexus S, 2.3.3 will introduce new near-field communication (NFC) capabilities. For those still rocking a Nexus One, this will be the first official taste of Gingerbread on the device.
The news was broken via the official Google Nexus Twitter account, which advises users to be patient, and says that the OTA update process will take several weeks. Of course, direct links to the OTA update package should start to emerge long before then for anyone feeling a little impatient. [GoogleNexus on Twitter]
