Motorola Droid has experienced a few ticks including problems with the camera’s autofocus and substandard voice clarity. So earlier this week, Verizon rolled out a software update and will be sending it to Droids for another week or so at low usage times. The Droid update features 14 upgrades including fixes for the aforementioned camera autofocus problem, better audio, longer battery life and overall improvement of the operating system. Analysts are praising the move, and it should certainly help to alleviate any user concerns and bad publicity over some of the early glitches.
Ross Rubin, director of industry analysis for the NPD Group, agreed that the update is a good step. He wrote in his e-mail: “The Droid update that Verizon is reported to be rolling out is a minor update, albeit one that can create a meaningful improvement to its users’ experience. In an age of advanced smartphones, it is still important to address established functionality such as voice quality and taking pictures. This is the case even if the problems affect relatively few users.” [via TopTechNews]
