Motorola Droid: Android 2.2 Froyo Update before Desire?

By Alan Ng - May 25, 2010

We have some good news for Motorola Droid owners now, as Motorola has issued a statement regarding the pending update to Google’s latest version (Android 2.2 Froyo) of their operating system.

As reported from Phandroid, Motorola has confirmed that the Droid will be receiving the update to Froyo, but revealed that this will come ‘in the near future’.

Here is a portion of their official statement regarding the update: ”We do expect DROID by Motorola users will receive Android 2.2 as a software upgrade in the near future.”

The news comes straight after a HTC rep let slip that the HTC Desire would be receiving the update to 2.2 Froyo on June 23rd. That is obviously still over a month away, so do you think the update on the Motorola Droid will happen first?

It is hard to interpret what ‘in the near future’ really means, especially when an Android update is mentioned. Let us know your thoughts on the news.
