First-gen DROID to get Froyo before DROID X

First-gen DROID to get Froyo before DROID X
Sure, owners of the first-gen Motorola DROID have a reason to be a bit jealous. After all, the DROID X is coming with a massive 4.3 inch display, built-in apps like Swype and Blockbuster, and the new version has stolen all the thunder away from the original model. On the other hand, the DROID will be receiving the Android 2.2 upgrade and the things that go with it-the speed bump, flash support-before DROID X owners get to install the upgrade. According to a leaked picture of internal Verizon communications, the original DROID should end up with the update in late July. The DROID X will be getting the bulk of the attention, but it won't be getting Android 2.2 until late August. Both updates are scheduled to be done OTA, similar to the way original DROID owners received the Androids 2.1 upgrade all those weeks ago. It all reminds of that childhood taunt, "Age before beauty".
