Verizon Wireless Samsung Droid Charge FP1 update: Changelog
Samsung released its Droid Charge almost a year ago now and late last year owners of the device were treated to the Android Gingerbread update, and today we have news of the Verizon Wireless Samsung Droid Charge FP1 update.
The carrier has revealed it will begin rolling out a system update for the device, which before you get excited is not Android ICS. The latest update will add the same diagnostics tool that Verizon recently made available to the LG Revolution, which will allow Verizon support staff to remotely access a customer’s device when trouble shooting.
This update will also fix a number of bugs along with enhancing the handsets performance, and users will be notified once the software update is ready for their handset. Users are advised to download the update when it is available, and brings with it a number of features.
These include a new user interface, wireless alerting system, USB tethering when in Wi-Fi mode, simpler data activity view with the Wi-Fi icon located in the status bar, no longer lose data connectivity when the USB cable is connected or disconnected, calls can be completed without experiencing audio issues, and users will no longer receive a promotional notification popup when using Mobile Hotspot.
Other changes include VZ Navigator has been updated to version 188.8.131.52, updated Google Books, Market, and Gmail applications. The software update now protects the device from losing data caused by some third party applications, and the Desk-dock crash issue has also been addressed.
The default Internet browser is now Google.com and the system update file size is 85 MB, which should only take between one and two minutes to download and the same time to install it to the handset. For more information including instructions on how to download the update click here.
