Rumor: DROID X Android 2.2 Update Launching 9/22?

Another Droid X 2.2 rumor!  The latest comes from level 2 Motorola support which normally would mean absolutely nothing, but when these service reps drop a few extra details in their conversations, sometimes they are worth at least a little mention.  Here is what we’ve got…

We know that Verizon and Motorola have stood by a “late summer” release timeline which if we’re getting really technical, would mean they have 2-3 days left to drop this on us.  What we also know is that the Droid X on 2.1 has some major exchange issues which caused Motorola to hook up DX business users with Touchdown licenses to pass the time until Android 2.2 is released.  When you put these 2 together, this is where we get interested.

One of our readers, needing Touchdown, had to call Motorola after not receiving his free license.  He was then told that Moto is out of Touchdown licenses and they are waiting until after the 2.2 update hits before they plan on replenishing license stock.  And when did he expect the update to hit?  September 22nd.  The last day of summer.  Two days from now.

Again, a rumor from tech support, so take it for what it’s worth.

On a related note, I can tell you that I’ve reached out to both Verizon and Motorola PR and received essentially the same answer.  They are working on the update and expect it to be ready “soon.”

Rather than crossing fingers, let’s cross shoe strings or something?

Cheers sonic!

    what i like most is With Android 2.2, we can rotate our screen 270 degrees—either to the left or to the right when moving from portrait to landscape mode—to work with apps in more directions

    I really didn’t care about getting Froyo on my DX given how great 2.1 worked out for me.

    It's really a bigger deal if you're developing for 2.2 and can't afford a Google phone.

    Now mine is being covered over by a black cloud ora type thing. The eye is almost completely covered. This is no rumor. This is the REAL DEAL.

    Do you have to pay to update the Droid X software?

    The transformation has begun. If you notice your droid eye wallpaper it was all gray with the red eye. Now mine is being covered over by a black cloud ora type thing. The eye is almost completely covered. This is no rumor. This is the REAL DEAL.

    There is a better chance of Michael Jackson releasing a new album from the afterworld than 2.2 pushing to my Droid X by the end of summer.

    Stop toying with my emotions!

    The average age of the people on this site must be about 14. Get a life people! It's a phone! Obviously Motorola wants to get this update right before they launch it so they don't end up with something like an IPhone reception scandal on their hands. Keep your pants on!

    I'm tired of caring about this. I have the leaked version which is still somewhat buggy, but slightly better than 2.1 was. I really love the form factor, but hating Motorola. The original Droid is what got me sucked in. Next time I'll know better and go with another brand.

    I just clicked on System Update and its tarted downloading software. I got really excited thinking this was 2.2. After the update which took 5 minutes I got a message stating that it was Firmware 1.13604.en US Version. So pissed. What gives? Upon searching the boards for this, I discovered many folks got this update in July. Again what gives as I have tried updating software many times before. Why didn't this download earlier if it has been out since July?
