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