DROIDX Froyo Update Delayed to September?

Droid X users, please take a deep breath before you read this.  And let me just say that “early September” is not that much different than “late August” when we’re talking about Froyo updates.  Why am I prefacing this?  Because the Motorola forums manager just dropped some interesting news on the DX community…

Some Droid X users are experiencing an issue using Exchange 2003 email. Though the email is arriving on the Droid X, no notifications are appearing. A fix for this will be included in the upgrade to Android 2.2 scheduled for deployment by early September.

He was responding to the growing list of people having issues with Exchange support on their device and managed to slip in a surprise timeline for Froyo.  September…not August.  Maybe Android 2.2 and Blur aren’t playing nice?  And maybe this is the same reason that we still don’t have an official date for the Droid 2?

Thoughts anyone?

    This version does not include flash yet, but in theory, this app could provide flash support even when your other browser does not.

    Well I have had my droid x since launch and personally I don't see a problem with it except when i first got it it had all this bloatware on it. Thanks for posting this. i really had good time reading this.

    Unexpected demand leading to back orders, buggy code leading to firmware delays, broken promises and frustrated consumers. Motorola and Verizon have a real mess here.

    It should be released later as an enterprise update instead of making those of us who aren't using it for business wait even longer.

    I think this time updates of DROIDX Froyo will be interesting therefore they had delayed it to September.And also i think they had delayed it to make it more perfect for us.

    I know to develop the site it is hard to do therefore you are delaying the date.Anyways we'll wait for Droid 2.

    Usually when people put down other people’s things, it’s to compensate for something they’re missing. Just a thought!free from Verizon and laugh at the people who are paying $200+ for the Droid and Droid 2 only to find out it is obsolete in a couple months.

    Just got my Froyo update and I am very satisfied. However yes I agree do away with blur and leave as open platform. I mean this isn't apple. Right?dx

    I believe froyo (2.2) containes V8 for javascript which will make many web pages up to 30% faster, it also has a better core Java JIT compiler, which will make most apps run about 10% faster, and of course flash. Im also fairly ceartain it supports a significantly higher level of OpenGL for better 3D gaming. Ive read alot in the last few weeks, so its all mixed up, but thats what i think i remember, and why its such a great update.

    I believe when they mention dates in the forums, take the date that Matt the Moto Forum dude says, add +1 month, subtract a random number between 5 and 13 days, and add the product of one fifth the day that the post was made rounded to the highest integer and then add a random number (between 25 to 50 days) for Verizon to decide if the update is ok for them (testing with V-apps etc). Now, I think patience is truly a virtue…

      I would like to say this to Motorola: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE hire more testers or if you do not have them, create a testing department! I know the public is full of great guinea pigs like us, however how long have you been around? For such a great company that made the first cellphone, I would have expected better especially with bugs…

    screw the updates im rooting my phone.

    i think the delay would be alright because they can make more modifications on the OS… they can make it better.( i hope )…

    This is the best android device out right now (aside from evo i suppose) and Verizon is already putting it on the backburner for the Droid2. Unacceptable. Anyone else feel like this device should have launched with froyo? After using my Droid X since July 15th, now when I hold my Droid (yeah, I still get my rom on) the screen is just SO SMALLLLLLL

    Gotta love new technology roll outs. Unexpected demand leading to back orders, buggy code leading to firmware delays, broken promises and frustrated consumers. Motorola and Verizon have a real mess here.

    Honestly i don't like the Droid X after i got it.
    I was expecting alot of things from the phone.
    1 zoom in video mode not just camera mode!!!!
    2 flash already on it, they even fu c kin talked about it at the confrence.
    3 NO motoblur or ninjablur or anykind of blur related.
    4 Motorola to go out of business
    5 no pre-installed shi ts on it, like blockbuster, 3g hotspot, need for speed the demo version (give a me a break, im still a kid, was expecting the whole game)
    6 hdmi out for all the media not just the gallery.
