Motorola DROID to get Froyo July 13th?
With Nexus One users running around using Flash 10.1 on their browser, owners of Android 2.1 models can't help but be jealous. Most of the models at 2.1 will be joining the N-One possibly as soon as this quarter. The next phone on the list to get Android 2.2 is the Motorola DROID. Reports are circulating that July 13th will be the date when DROID owners can expect the OTA upgrade that will give the unit Flash capabilities and a speed bump among other things. The date is interesting because as we reported, on the 15th, the DROID X is expected to launch with Android 2.1. That device is not expected to get Froyo until some time in August. Motorola and Verizon could have launched the DROID X first and forced owners of the first-gen DROID to make the tough decision on whether or not to upgrade. By giving the current owners of the first-gen machine the upgrade first, it allows them to see if having Flash and the extra speed is enough to let the DROID X go for a while. The DROID 2 is expected to launch August 23rd and that device is supposedly going to have Android 2.2 under the hood, right out of the box.

Droid yet another update continuing to make it better and better, odd though, you've never really had to update for software "issues" just improvements making the device more capable of doing more things....I guess that helps when you dont have to focus on holding the phone a certain way, you have time to hone in on actual desires of equipment users...

I really hope we don't have another "when are we getting 2.1" frenzy going around.

Its official, well at least thats what they said. Droid for later this month, and Droid X for summer ending. But I think that if nexus one still has not the final version of 2.2, MOTO is going to release it on time, because they maybe will work with lastest version

I've had Froyo for...oh....about a month now! Root baby - root. The sad part is the custom ROMs I've run are probably faster and more stable than the official build yet to be released! Gotta love the devs - shout out to Pete! Thanks, bro!

from a company standpoint it doesnt make sense to release the update BEFORE DroidX. As a business you would prefer people go the DROIDX instead of getting the update. Guaranteed wont release before July 15th. And you can come back and quote me in a week and a half. anywho... INCREDIBLE FTW!
