Motorola DROID getting full featured firmware update soon

I had a chance last weekend to spend a bit of time with the Motorola Droid from Verizon Wireless and was impressed by the display and solid form factor. I didn't think the keyboard was that great and prefer the HTC Sense flavor of the Android OS. Those of you who own the Verizon Droid will be pleased to know that a firmware update should start rolling out today that address a ton of issues, as listed on the Android Central website and copied below.

I didn't think the keyboard was that great and prefer the HTC Sense flavor of the Android OS.
