Moto Droid Supposedly Getting Froyo on 7/13
Just saw this over on Droid Life:
We just received word from one of our most reliable sources that the official Android 2.2 update will be hitting the Motorola Droid starting July 13th. I know, I know, here we go again right? After the pain we all experienced with 2.1, it’s hard to even mention a rumored Froyo update date, but this one feels legitimate enough to share.
Let me just toss out some thoughts as to why this could easily happen…
- We’ve already seen July mentioned in a couple of Verizon systems.
- The Droid X arrives 2 days later on the 15th. What better way to keep your millions of Droid 1 customers happy than by dropping a major OS update on them a few days before a new device takes over the Droid throne.
- July 13th is a Tuesday, and if you remember the 2.1 update, Verizon tends to like Tuesdays.
- We saw the release of an extremely polished Droid Froyo build (FRF84B) this week which should mean we’re closer than ever.
Thoughts? Fingers and toes crossed?
Rumor: Motorola Droid Getting FroYo OTA on July 13th
The folks over at Droid-Life are at it again! A "reliable" source has told Droid-Life that the Motorola Droid will start receiving the official 2.2 FroYo OTA on Tuesday, July 13th. According to Motorola, the 2.2 updated is expected by the end of July, so this may not be so far-fetched. Also, FRF84b has recently been leaked, and from the general consensus of the development community, this latest FroYo leak seems to be rather stable and ready for primetime.
Now we all know, considering the 2.1 debacle, we should take this rumor with a grain of salt. But rumors are meant to be, if not anything else, fun! Considering the Droid X will be debuting on July 15th, wouldn't it be nice for Motorola to show its customer base some loyalty by updating the Droid 1 before the X is released?
What do you guys think?
