Hey Droid Chargers/Chargites/Chargians! Verizon has that Gingerbread update you’ve been waiting for and they’ve slapped the “coming soon” sticker on it.

Motorola Smart Actions automates tasks, features, and battery life to improve Droid Razr

One of the best Android apps that I’ve ever had the pleasure of using is Tasker, which automates functions and settings on Android based on triggers. I love it because it can launch Foursquare as soon as I check into my favorite bar or turn off auto-sync when my battery drops below 20 percent.
