Verizon Preparing Android 2.2 Release for DROID X? Hidden Document Sort of Says So

A semi-hidden document was just sent to us from Verizon’s droiddoes.com site and shows the makings of a Droid X 2.2 update in the works.  While no dates are given, this is the first time we’ve seen an Android 2.2 document/mention which even included a few Froyo details for the DX.  It’s an odd page though, and simply references the support page that would normally feature updates including PDFs.

This page was created on 9/10 which would lead us to believe that an update could be just around the corner.  Of course we’re not holding our breath, crossing our fingers or anything that would require effort while waiting for this to actually happen, but it’s at least something.

Can anyone else find the page? 🙂

Cheers cmpx!

  • Awesome news! I just got my droid and love it. Of course it needs the update badly but now I am super happy to know it will be available, finally. Thanks for your great job and keeping us informed.

  • there are some minor bugs like the revert to the top of text messages and the text message convo lists out of order by time…

  • Then it was early September and now it’s simply by the end of summer. Personally I’m not getting my hopes up until the update is actually downloaded on my phone.

  • 2.2 has been “close” and “coming soon” since I bought my DX on launch day. First it was with the blanket statement of “late summer”, then it was the first week in August. Then it was August 17th, then it was to be a X/Inc rollout at the end of August. Then it was early September and now it’s simply by the end of summer. Personally I’m not getting my hopes up until the update is actually downloaded on my phone.

  • Thanks for writing such appreciative blog. It’s an odd page though, and simply references the support page that would normally feature updates including PDFs.

  • I recently got Froyo, and it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. The only plus point was the flashlight, and that’s it.

  • There are some minor bugs like the revert to the top of text messages and the text message convo lists out of order by time…

  • I won't believe an update date until the morning after the date… until then it's just an up-yours-date…

  • I was under the impression that it was coming out very quickly after the phones release. a phone that had most people thinking it was being released with 2.2, only to be repeatedly delayed by 2.2, getting extremely frustrated.

  • I trust DL will find some way for us to get to the offical when it is released.. while the leaked 2.2 is 98% perfect, there are some minor bugs like the revert to the top of text messages and the text message convo lists out of order by time…

  • There are some minor bugs like the revert to the top of text messages and the text message convo lists out of order by time, but not by day.

  • Well I reverted back to 2.1 from the 1st leaked version of 2.2 so i could get the official release.

  • The Droid X uses a traditional TFT LCD; the iPhone 4 uses an IPS LCD, which is a variant on TFT. Thanks for the information.

  • I hope so! It's not like the Eris isn't awesome just because it has 1.5 but it would even more awesome with 2.1 (:

    It will happen when it happens. Right now, i'm lovin this device!
