Verizon: Froyo update for Droid Incredible starts today, new Droid Incredibles will ship with Froyo

Remember that rumor from yesterday, that Verizon’s HTC Droid Incredible would get Froyo starting today?

Well, it turns out it was true. Verizon confirmed as much via Twitter. So, all those of you who somehow managed to buy a Droid Incredible despite its continued shortages, rejoice! But do keep in mind that, as usual, the roll-out of the update will be in stages, so unfortunately your device may not get Android 2.2 today, but in the next few days. Just a bit more patience is required. On the other hand, you could just install that leaked build of the update that we talked about yesterday, but official is always better than unofficial. Or at least should make you feel better.

Also in Droid Incredible-related news, future Droid Incredible smartphones will ship with Android 2.2 Froyo preinstalled. This makes sense, but it’s nevertheless good that it has happened this fast. Also, for the first time since its announcement, the Droid Incredible seems not to be plagued by any delays anymore, so if you’ve been unable to get one, now may be a good time to place that order.

However you want to look at it, this is a very good day for Droid Incredible owners. Let’s just hope that many more Android powered smartphones will get updates to the latest and greatest OS version soon.

    I have it the problem is that Verizon the SOBs want you to pay for tether. To the tune of 15 dollars a month. We as a community should really do something about this. How dare they censor our database usage. 5 gig is 5 gig . That what I pay for. I put it out there that some one write an app that pulls data down via versions network every time you charge your phone and keeps pulling data right up to you alotted 5 gig amount . That my fellow customers might make this company stop trying to Nikle and dime every penny out of the pockets of It’s loyal customers.
