Incredible owners slated as latest Android users for upgrade

Great news, Droid Incredible owners! You will be the next lucky batch of people to get upgraded to Android's "Froyo" operating system, otherwise known as version 2.2.

Apparently, Verizon employees have already been installing the update to their personal Droid Incredibles. It will start going over the air to other users on Wednesday.

The 2.2 update adds support for the latest mobile Flash video codec, increases speed and functionality, and being able to run apps directyl from a microSD card.

And, unlike their Droid-owning bretheren, Droid Incredible owners will in fact be treated to the mobile hotspot functionality that lets them use the Internet on a laptop or any other Wi-Fi device through a virtual hotspot. Verizon is charging customers $20 a month to use the feature, though.

Android 2.2 has been slowly working its way through the device list, with Google's proprietary Nexus One device getting it first earlier this summer. Sprint customers with HTC's Evo 4G also picked up the update recently and it is making its way through the Droid user base right now.

Additionally, the just-released Droid 2 comes with Android 2.2 pre-installed. Droid X and Samsung Galaxy S owners are currently awaiting their official update announcement.

One other little nugget that Droid Incredible owners will get is a new bootup animation when they turn on their phone. Check it out below as you count down until Wednesday's update:
