Motorola DROID will get Android 2.2 in the "near future," but hazy for MOTOBLUR units
It's known for sure that both the Google Nexus One and Motorola DROID will be receiving an update for Android 2.2 Froyo, but we reported earlier that it'll be happening specifically some time in the “next few weeks” for the Nexus One. However, there was no mention of the time period for the Motorola DROID's expected update. When you really think about Android, you can't quite help think about the DROID's contribution to the platform and Verizon as well – it still has a decent following and sales continue to be top notch. According to SlashGear, they received some new information regard the DROID and Froyo that's sure to make anyone get excited. They spoke with someone from Motorola who went on to say, “We’re excited to see Google’s news of the next version of the Android operating system and look forward to integrating it on our Android-based devices as it’s made available to the open source community. While I can’t comment on specifics, we do expect DROID by Motorola users will receive Android 2.2 as a software upgrade in the near future.”

Although there are some stark commonalities between the DROID and MILESTONE, it would be a safe bet that it could become available around the same time for the latter as well. Interestingly enough, it's a bit difficult to make out the public relations jargon that can some times be misconstrued. Yes, the DROID will see it in the “near future” while it's unclear if and when Motorola's MOTOBLUR devices will see it. Based on the conversation, Motorola is intent on integrating it in their Android-based devices, but it could potentially mean that MOTOBLUR devices could be left out of the mix. If it does become a reality that they will bring it aboard, there would probably be a bit amount of time before we see it as most of them are still awaiting Android 2.1
