Droid X to Get Android 2.2 Froyo Update Wednesday

Ryan Whitwam

Verizon's popular Droid X will finally be getting its update to Android 2.2 (Froyo) starting Wedsesday , according to multiple reports. Users will begin getting system update notifications around noon EST tomorrow. This update will bring the Droid X up to par with the Droid 2, which launched a few weeks ago with Android 2.2 out of the box.

There is one unique benefit of this update. Users will be able to manually update legitimately. By going to Settings > About > System Updates, the phone will actually download the update after it has gone live tomorrow. On other Android phones, this just checks to see if a handset has been provisioned for the push update.

Users can expect a number of improvements to the phone's software including support for Adobe Flash 10.1, a faster JavaScript engine in the browser, and better Android Market updates. Although, some new Verizon branded crapware , like VZ Navigator, might be making an appearance as well. Any Droid X users out there? Is this an exciting update, or are you over it?
