Droid, Droid X To Be Next Android 2.2 Phone

After the Nexus One got the latest Android upgrade a couple weeks ago, Google is now working on pushing the so-called "Froyo" update to Motorola's Droid, and then shortly thereafter the Droid X.
The Droid X isn't even scheduled to be released until July 15th, and a report on PC Magazine says that the Android 2.2 update will come early next month. So in other words, users who buy a Droid X phone are going to be prompted to update it pretty quickly.

Even sooner than that, the original Droid which is the #1 selling Android phone in the country, will be getting dipped into the world of Froyo, according to Brighthand. The Droid will reportedly be getting the update in the middle of July.

The 2.2 update, which increases performance, adds a portable Wi-Fi hotspot feature, and gives support to the new mobile Flash standard, is expected to come out to the majority of Android devices by the end of the year. Older phones, however, like the G1, Hero, or Samsung Moment, will be locked out of the new operating system.

Samsung's Galaxy S series, should be among the next devices to get Froyo.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
