Verizon Wireless OTA Software Update

While the Motorola Droid X experienced a successful launch just a few days ago, Verizon Wireless is wasting no time in rolling out a new OTA update that makes several improvements and enhancements. The update is dubbed 1.13.604.MB810.Verizon.en.US/Baseband: BP_C01.09.04P and Verizon has a PDF article highlighting the improvements and enhancements.

+ Improved battery charging status indicator.
+ Smoother transition for camera and camcorder functions.
+ Redesign of weather widget icons.
+ Faster Exchange ActiveSync® email loading.
+ Streamlined organization of newly downloaded applications.
+ Organized favorite contacts by call count.
+ Updated Bluetooth® connection for enhanced video
sharing experience.
+ Coordinated date and time across phone displays.
+ Cleaner looking status bar for GPS symbol.
+ Improved sync capabilities for 3G Mobile Hotspot.
+ Faster Visual Voice Mail loading.
+ Take advantage of the enhanced, preloaded My Verizon application.
+ Preloaded Amazon Kindle® application lets you read Kindle books on
your Android™ phone, including thousands of free books.

Even though the software OTA update is not the coveted Android 2.2 update, it still should offer some nice fixes and additional features for Droid X owners. The roll out is scheduled to begin July 19, but as with all OTA roll outs, it takes several days for all devices to be updated.
