    Unfortunately, you'll be getting it a little later than the Moto users, but you should still get it. It's a side-effect of HTC's UI customizations; it's a lot faster to qualify the bone-stock OS for different hardware.

    Maybe the droidx shipping with 2.1 is a good thing. Since most devs are familliar with 2.1 there might be a fairly easy way to root it and byb some miracle there is after it does get the 2:2 update there will be a way to use sbf to get it back to 2.1 to root it.

    I'll second that seeing as my contact just told me yesterday it won't be til Aug at best. Latest frf84 build still needs to go to final testing and so forth before it is pushed out. Highly highly unlikely it would be Sept tho unless some disaster happened.

    Dudes,

    He got that from THIS forum.

    That's how the other stupid earlier rumor started. Stop worrying about it, you can't make it happen by constantly checking.

    Yeah, it could be there way of saying thanks to those of us who supported the Droid. Whatever the reason is, I'll take it.

    I was in verizon the other day and found out that the early upgrade is only if you are upgrading from a non-smart phone

    Not true! I and several other people currently with Verizon accounts and smart phones purchased the Droid X with an early upgrade. All we did is call 611. When I purchased my Droid X, my contract was not due for upgrade until 5/21/11.

    Are you saying that they let you have the discounted price ($199) for a DroidX even though you are not eligible for an upgrade for almost an additional year and already have a smartphone still under contract with Verizon?

    I was given the same upgrade. I bought my D1 in December 09 and they let me upgrade to the DX.
