Motorola Europe announced on their Facebook page that they released a software update for the XT720 in the UK and Germany which increases the phone's processor speed to 720MHz, as well as adding DLNA connectivity to the handset. The XT720 shipped originally with a 550MHz processor, but now it seems that the handset will finally have the processor speed that the device was likely named after.
Below is the full statement from Motorola Europe:
Hello. XT720 of either UK or German origin can now download new software that
increases the processor speed (to 720mhz) and also introduces DLNA
functionality. We have also produced a top 5 tips and tricks video to maximise
the camera functionality of the device. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_dYgpnoY6tc
As for the reason behind the choice to only release the update in Germany and the UK, one comment on the Facebook page suggests that Germany and the UK were the two largest markets for the phone. Expect an update for later countries later on.

Engadget adds that users should be able to download the app today onto their device or wait for it to get pushed to their device OTA.
Sound off in the comments if anyone got the update and notices any change in performance or battery life.
