Droid X: Android 2.2 Froyo Release Date – Update from Verizon Employee

We have some interesting details for those of you patiently waiting for the Android 2.2 Froyo update for the Motorola Droid X. Some new information has been revealed on the update, allegedly from a Verizon employee.

As reported from Cnet, the information has come via AndroidSpin, as a Verizon employee has said that the update to Android 2.2 Froyo on the Droid X will start on August 6th. According to him, the rollout will start on this date (Friday), and continue until August 15th.

Both Motorola and Verizon have previously stated that the handset will be updated to Froyo before the end of the Summer, so there might be some truth towards this new information – what do you think?

If it is true, then you might want to hold off from rooting your device until a few weeks later. Full details over at Cnet.

Oh geez, I just want it for my original Droid. With all this fang daddled stuff Im alot better off just rooting it myself to ensure I get it today and now.

Making corrections to my previous comment. "Hangs Sprint apps". However, I did a manual restart and everything seems to run fine now.

Cons: Some apps were lost. Example: Navigation says its not available in my area. (Android 2.1 did not have this inconvenience). Bluetooth in car kinda cheap.

Pros: Processing speed increased dramatically. New apps included. Improved distribution of menus and app functions.

Its official, Sprint has Froyo available for EVO 4g. Downloaded it today Aug. 3 2010. Still playing with it but notice some instability. Hangs apps (browser, some print apps) and atleast 2 don't respond to touch commands correctly (messaging, boxing game). Flash works divine.

I am a store mgr for VZW and yes, the information is true. Just spoke with people responsible for loading OTA’s to the network and the 2.2 for the X will be rolling out in the time frame given in the story.

You must crave attention. A Verizon employee, huh? What could be a more reliable source than that? Thumbs down. Fail.
