Motorola Droid X: Android 2.2 FroYo Release Date Info

Good news for Droid X users now, as Verizon and Motorola are aiming to roll out the Android 2.2 Froyo OS update by early September.

Motorola let the news slip in one of their support forums that the Droid X would be getting the update in less than four weeks.

The topic of discussion was addressing Exchange 2003 issues on the Droid X, when this response was posted:

Some Droid X users are experiencing an issue using Exchange 2003 email. Though the email is arriving on the Droid X, no notifications are appearing. A fix for this will be included in the upgrade to Android 2.2 scheduled for deployment by early September.

This update will be welcomed by the DX community, as they will finally get a substantial boost to their overall performance, Google Chrome-like web browsing speed, Adobe Flash 10.1 support and an upgrade facility for Android applications when they become available.

The DX Android 2.2 update is set to come in the form of OTA (Over the Air) download, but beware as an earlier leaked Froyo ROM for the smartphone was found to be a hoax.

Hmm… It's Sept 20 and no Froyo update yet. The early Sept release date must be in lunar calendar. Still waiting…

Wasn't there a South Park about this, and Eric Cartman froze himself because he couldn't stand the wait… Only to be revived 500 years in the future. Strange how reality mimics social media mimicking reality.

I wonder if the newer DX will come with the updated Android system. I have yet to buy mine but, was just about too until I realized the software was missing things and had hardware issues. I've been told directly by Verizon that it will fix all that.

I'd rather wait for a late release and have everything work correctly. I remember when wireless cells just had a number on the screen. No info, pictures or downloads. Now everyone complains when they buy something new and updates don't come out immediately. It will come. At least we don't own Apple.

As long as they get it right, so what if it's backed up for a little while longer.

So last month the good news was froyo for Droid X in August, now the good news is early September and we're supposed to be happy? Reminds me of Orwell's book 1984 where the party reduces chocolate rations one week and next week the plebes are throwing a parade to thank the party for doubling the chocolate ration.
