    Rumor: Motorola DROID Receiving Android 2.2 July 13th

    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…

    1. We’ve already seen July mentioned in a couple of Verizon systems.
    2. 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.
    3. July 13th is a Tuesday, and if you remember the 2.1 update, Verizon tends to like Tuesdays.
    4. We saw the release of an extremely polished Droid Froyo build (FRF84B) this week which should mean we’re closer than ever.

    Sounds about right to me. I figured they would push it out before their newer phones become available. With the X have a release date that is set in done, they are some real motivation to get this out quickly.
