Unlike its QWERTY keyboard-touting brother, the Droid 2, the Motorola Droid X has been stuck on Android 2.1 Eclair until now. Obviously, Droid X owners were anxiously waiting for the upgrade to Android 2.2 Froyo.
And it looks like that much awaited update is coming tomorrow. Your Droid X should notify you that there’s an update available, but even if it doesn’t, you can manually check and install it. This 67.6 MB update will bring your device to “version” 2.3.15.
Here’s the official word from Verizon:
“Verizon Wireless will begin pushing Android 2.2, Froyo, to the DROID X by Motorola tomorrow. Customers do not have to wait for the over the air push, they can obtain the official update via the device itself by following these steps: “Menu” > “Settings” > “About Phone” > “System Updates”. For more information and step-by-step instructions please visit www.verizonwireless.com/DroidXsupport.”
And here’s a list of all the different enhancements and improvements that Froyo will bring to the Droid X:
The Droid X will shortly join the growing number of Android devices to run Google’s latest and greatest mobile OS version, which is good news no matter how you look at it.
