New DROID Incredibles to Ship with Froyo? Maybe, Maybe Not?

The Droid Incredible order page on VerizonWireless.com has been updated to include all of the features the device will see once it finally gets Froyo over the next few days.  What’s interesting is that it sort of leads you to believe that new versions of the device will ship with all of this update goodness, however we understand the unlikeness of that happening.  After all, the Droid has been updated 2-3 times now and if you were to somehow find a brand new one today, it would come with Android 2.0 (in some cases 2.1) and simply force you to update it immediately.

Nice to see VZW acknowledging the update everywhere though.

    I don't know what to get! Monday I can choose ANY phone I want! I want a D2, but I want an incredible!

    It shouldn't have taken this long. Hopefully with Gingerbread updating phones will be easier for the manufacture.

    Pre-ordered my Dinc and got it on day one. Had 2.1 on it.

    HTC Sence 1.6, eh? Someone didn't proofread.

    Ya I know a buddy who just got a d1 last week and it was running 2.1 update 1 and then later that day he was propted to update to 2.2

      Out of curiosity, I wonder how was he prompted to update to 2.2 last week…when the 2.2 update didn't begin until today?

      • Mavcable

        Scratch that… I was thinking about the Dinc, not the D1… My mistake!

    • Mavcable

      That would make sense as the Droid 1 2.2 update was available then. The information above is about the Dinc, not the D1.

    I received my DROID awhile back and it was running Android 2.1 out-of-the-box…

    • kellex

      Well maybe these will ship with 2.2 then. Could be huge actually.

    • villian1998

      I had 2.1 out of the box, when I picked it up in February. I think it was that 2.1a or 2.1.1 or whatever os

    “it would come with Android 2.0 and simply force you to update it immediately.” ?? — I didn't even get my Dinc until the end of June and it came out of the box with 2.1 (and that other little OTA update) already installed. Whenever I'm able to snag Froyo (finally), this will be the first actual update I've ever had to do to this phone.
