Since Monday, Verizon Wireless is rolling-out its Android 2.0.1 update for the Motorola Droid. Like the T-Mobile Cliq ROM update, the 10.2 MB Droid update is also distributed over the air (OTA) which means not all users will get the the firmware version AP:ESD56/BP:C_01.3E.01P at the same time. However, Verizon Wireless has now given further information which describes the improvements of the firmware update. As expected, Android 2.0.1 mostly features bug-fixes and improvements but no new functionalities. Most notable is the fact that an improved Android OS stability is mentioned first.

Other improvements includes an enhanced battery life is improved, an enhanced camera auto focus functionality with reduced time between shots as well as enhancements for three-way calling, improved audio for incoming calls and a couple of Bluetooth functionality improvements.
Furthermore, after closing a GPS application, the GPS icon will now automatically be removed from the notification panel as well as users can now receive SMS and MMS messages after an EMS message is received. Furthermore, SMS and MMS may now be sent to seven-digit addresses and the Google contact merging has been updated to accommodate seven-digit numbers. Last but not least, Visual Voice Mail notices now arrive instantaneously and the corporate calendar widget user interface was updated.

Still not available are information when and if Motorola plans to roll-out the Android 2.0.1 update for Motorola Milestone users (the GSM/UMTS equivalent to the CDMA Droid). A manual update search still ends with an error message, that the Motorola server isn't reachable at this time.
