    Well Android 2.2 was released and we are waiting for much improved 3.0 OS but I am very happy with Android 2.2 which give us more benefits as well much improved OS to us. Here I put some information about why it's important update for Android OS:

    the original droid wont be getting 3.0 officially as it does not meet the minimum requirements set by google.

    now would a developer find a way to do it.... sure its very possible.

    The minimum requirements to run G/B is a 1Ghz processor the Droid is sporting a stock 800Mhz (which was just recently upped from 550Mhz) not to say we won't see some 3.0 ROM's or at least some GingerBread crumbs, but the Official Release will not make it's way to the Original D

    The "leaked" minimum specs of Gingerbread were proven false by a Google engineer the day after the rumor surfaced. No one knows except Google what those requirements are. Stop posting false information please.

    bingo....

    requirements are 512 mb ram, and a 1 ghz processor .... the droid does not meet either of those.

    keep in mind those are the minimum requirements. So just because it can run on a 1ghz processor does not mean it will run well.

    Let me change my original statement...I would be very (very) surprised if G/B was Officially released for the Original Droid by Google or Motorola

    Just got off the phone with Motorola

    I just got off the phone with a Motorola technician that told me that if they were going to stop developing things for the Droid they would tag it with an "end of life" tag.

    So I'm sure something will be made to adjust on the original Droid.

    My Droid X says Firmware 2.1-update1. When I check for available updates, it says none are available at this time. When did you get 2.2 officially? Am I looking at the wrong place?
