    if your email looked like this then i think you will hopefully be trying gingerbread!!

    Thanks for joining the Motorola Feedback Network. We value your input!
    We recently learned of an opportunity to test new software for the original Droid in advance of wide release. These pre-launch “soak” tests are becoming increasingly common for Android phones. Naturally, we want to get as many Motorola Feedback Members involved as possible.
    If you are interested in taking part, please re-register for the Motorola Feedback Network using this link. The new registration process is much shorter than the older one. If you register and provide the required information and permissions, you will be invited to take part in the upcoming test for Droid. We will contact you about the test when the time is right.
    If you are now using a different Motorola phone, please re-register as well, so we can include you in projects for your current phone. (If you click the link above and find you don’t end up on the survey, but on a forum page entitled “Thanks for registering for the Motorola Feedback Network!” please read that page for an explanation.)
    Please respond as soon as possible. There is a limit to how many Motorola Feedback Network members we can include, and we will work on a first come, first served basis.
    Regards,
    - Matt

    Hope you are correct about this being Gingerbread & not just a small update or UI.

    you know someone is going to get this, and hand it to the DEV team and us rooted guys are going to get it a day or two later :) i have a feeling it is 2.2.1 (which i am running already with PEv3) tho and not gingerbread.

    while this is possible moto usually does not go through this much trouble for a small update.

    I just hope it makes my phone capable of multitasking again. With 2.2's changes to the way apps close and how it "manages" memory, anything I try to leave running in the background gets automatically killed.

    Gotta be honest, 2.2 made me fall a bit outta love with my droid.

    Yes, I agree & it has opened the door to me looking at other smartphones OS when my contract is up.
