    The D2G is too powerful a phone to go without updates... It'll eventually get Gingerbread, though I don't know when. I'm guessing somewhere around the same time that the DX gets updated.

    I'm with Dorian, but I'm going to say it'll probably be a couple weeks if not a full month after the X update because the D2G isn't as popular, so it's lower on the priority list.

    Why do you sppose that is. Dont get me wrong the X is an awesome phone but i definitely think the d2g is better with the exception that the bootloader is locked. Anyway thanks for the input i appreciate the quick responses especially from the super moderators.

    The X is "sexier" with the bigger screen, so it's sold more units. The Droid 2 Global was positioned as a business phone, whereas the X as a consumer phone. Since most business still issue Blackberries (with good reason), the demand for it was already restricted.

    I agree with poon. D2 is a lost cause. And it sucks.

    With all do respect good sir. Your off you rocker. The D2G is an awesome phone. Quadrant advanced marks it as the overall top phone (for now anyway). Yah i agree that the locked bootloader really puts a damper on the full capabilties of the phone and yah had i done my homework before getting it i probably would have "gone elsewhere". but at the same time aliasxerog is working hard on cracking the bootlader for the droidx (which is clearly a great phone as well) so i'm sure once he completes his work that shortly after that it will be tweaked for most locked devices. see for yourself Project Bootloader Freedom - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum

    The biggest component as i see it is that the droid 2/global suck from a hacking standpoint but motorola couldnt care less. For the vast majority of users it is a solid phone. I would be baffled if it didnt get gingerbread.

    ... So rumor has it that gingerbread 2.4 is around the corner thus delaying updates for most phones getting the update and may not go to several phones that were originally expected to get the update. However rumors are just that "Rumors". Penny for your thoughts...
