Motorola Droid 3 set to land new update
Motorola Droid 3 users are set to receive a new update that adds GTalk video chat. The new Android build is 5.6.890.XT862 and is 57.6MB in size. In addition to the new video chatting capability, users can look forward to over 30 bug fixes and additional functionality.
Among the bug fixes, users can look forward to a display that no longer flickers, Airplane Mode that works properly when toggling rapidly, GPS updates which now install properly, as well as the device no longer overheating when using the camera or camcorder for extended periods. The Blur interface has also been tweaked and is said to be cleaner, and more stable.
New functionality brought in the update includes faster camera shutter speed and the addition of multi-shot capability, improvements to SWYPE, and improved audio quality.
The overall update is expected to take 20 to 45 minutes to download, while the installation process should take 5 -10 minutes. Users can manually check for the OTA update, otherwise they will find a notification pushed from the update server when it is available.
