Will The Motorola Droid Receive Android 2.2 By July 13?
We already heard the Motorola Droid would receive the Android 2.2 update well before the Motorola Droid X, but the only time frame given was a vague late July. However, today we have a new rumor about the Droid saying it will receive the Froyo update on July 13. This information comes from a “most reliable source” according to Droid-Life and they are taking it pretty seriously. July 13 does line up with the reported time frame of late July, although I would be more inclined to say July 13 is mid-July as opposed to late July. Moving on, July 13 is a mere two days before the launch of the highly anticipated Motorola Droid X and perhaps Verizon and Motorola want to make all Droid users happy during the week of the Droid X launch. It could all be a publicity stunt to gain more hype by launching the Motorola Droid X and rolling out Android 2.2 to the original Droid. Just for people who believe in superstition, Android 2.1 was rolled out to Droid devices on a Tuesday as well. Check your calendar, July 13 is also a Tuesday. Let’s just hope Android 2.2 won’t keep being postponed like Android 2.1 was for the Droid. Lastly, Google has already rolled out the official update for Nexus Ones in the form of Build FRF84B so Android 2.2 is ready for prime time whenever the manufacturers are ready to push it to their device. Remember, this is still only a rumor and we have yet to hear official confirmation from Verizon or Motorola.
