Verizon originally promised that Droid X customers would be getting their upgrade to Android 2.2 this summer. Well, summer ends during the day tomorrow and it appears they might just barely meet that deadline.
According to a report from Droid-Life.com, a Motorola representative has confirmed that Droid X will be getting the upgrade to Android 2.2, also known as “Froyo,” tomorrow. This comes without any sort of official notice from Motorola or Verizon.
But that’s kind of how Android 2.2 has worked up to this point. Phones have been getting the update in random order and at random times. There has not been a point where two phones got the update simultaneously and as such, it has become kind of a way to highlight every high-end Android device as they go down the line.
The Droid X garnered a media frenzy when it launched earlier this summer, with stores instantly selling out and demand far exceeding Verizon’s expectations. However, it was quickly overshadowed by the subsequent release of the Droid 2, the official successor to the #1 selling Android phone, the Droid.
Every device with the word “Droid” in its name is now fully equipped with Android 2.2 except for the Droid X. Hopefully that will change tomorrow, if the report is correct.
Google’s Nexus One and HTC’s Evo 4G are among the non-Droid phones that have also been upgraded to Froyo. Hundreds of thousands of people with Samsung’s new Galaxy S phones, though, are still waiting.
