Motorola Droid X: Android 2.2 Froyo Delayed? – Release Date Update

While the Motorola Droid and HTC Droid Incredible are now enjoying the delights of Android 2.2 Froyo, Motorola Droid X owners are not so lucky. We have some more rumors for you to read about now, which may just turn that frustration into hope.

According to this report from Droid-Life, the official Droid X update to Android 2.2 Froyo will now happen in around 2-3 weeks time, as their tipster has claimed that the update has been delayed due to a problem involving Exchange features.

They say that these Exchange issues are deleting security policies on the handset when moving from 2.1 to 2.2, hence the reason for the delay, as Verizon are now back testing the latest build.

Should we now presume that Froyo will land before the end of the month? Let us know your thoughts on the potential Exchange problems. More over at Droid-Life.

Hey i updated my droid x using the leaked froyo. When the official update arrives..will I still have the choice of getting it? Or will I have to factory reset it to 2.1 to get it or something? Replies are appreciated..thanks.

These delays are starting to piss me off! I was going to replace my

IPhone 4 with the Droid X but if Verizon can’t even update with 2.2 without delaying constantly, I may just give it to my wife. At least Apple is usually reliable with their update release dates. Plus I’ve found the iPhone 4 has the much superior touch screen.

Although i do want flash on my phone now!!! I am hoping that the exchange they are fixing will sync better with outlook. Im a website designer and i am going to be so happy once i get the update and i know several people who are gettin the x for business use once flash and sync with outlook better becomes available. Awes can’t wait!

It's really pissing me off that features I've had and used for 10 years with my last 4 Motorola phones won't work with my Droid X until I get the 2.2 update. IE My HF850 bluetooth car adapter doesn't work. Also my home WiFi that uses the more advanced security features available for 2-3 years. Finally I tried to watch a video on Hulu yesterday and it says I need the new version of Flash. My buddy has got his update for his original Droid. I want my Mapo!

Well we were promised that by the end of summer it should be released so by September 23, 2010 we should except it to arrive.

its just because they didnt get to flog the droid 2 enough. its a lame excuse because they are saying that cant release it when its already broken. sounds like they just want to market some other stuff more. We know what they are doing. they have a finished copy they just wont release it.

flash. i'd really like flash. droid-based phones aren't really used much in the corporate world yet, can't the exchange thing just be 2.2.1?

Who cares about Exchange? Businesses give us Crackberries to check work email because the Crackberries can be locked down so tight to make them an extension of the office (i.e., useless). I have my DroidX for my real life. And I certainly don't use Exchange for my real email!
