I've read different info on the MotoDroid update that started today and would like some details from BBOS members who have installed the update. New lock screen & other graphic changes??? Better battery life. What's the scoop?
I haven't gotten the update notification yet but did read on VZW's page the following (found here)
Enjoy improved performance with these OS enhancements.

• The corporate calendar widget user interface is updated.
Also according to BGR not everyone will receive the OTA update at the same time:
Here’s what we’ve got: a clear explanation from a VZW connect that outlines how the OTA updates work for the Motorola DROID. At noon today, approximately 1,000 people received the notification to update their handset. At around midnight this evening, 9,000 more will receive it. After the initial 10,000, there is a 48-hour waiting period. No one after that receives anything until December 10th at 12AM, which will be 200,000 people. It will continue at 200,000 devices a day until everyone is updated.
When I get the notification I will be sure to update here and let you know what I find.
I just read the BGR info a minute ago. I'm really curious about the graphical changes to the lock screen and a couple other things (using viigo & deleted read feeds... I miss FeedR!)
Thanks for the post though.
There was a photo of the lock screen change on phandroid. I'm mobile on my bb now so I don't have that address with me. It looked like the time font is larger and offset to the left. The unlock and sound button are now longer on a slide arch. It looks like u just slide left or right now.
