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.
