Motorola Droid to Get Android 2.2 (Froyo) in “Near Future”

Not content with their Android 2.1 update from a few weeks ago, Motorola Droid owners are already looking for 2.2 (Froyo) information.  Our inbox and twitter feed has been hammered with requests from Droid users begging for the latest Android release.  “How long will we have to wait?” seems to be the question of the week.  The guys over at SlashGear decided to reach out to Motorola to see if the handset maker has an update in store.

“We’re excited to see Google’s news of the next version of the Android operating system and look forward to integrating it on our Android-based devices as it’s made available to the open source community.”

While I can’t comment on specifics, we do expect DROID by Motorola users will receive Android 2.2 as a software upgrade in the near future.

Until someone can get Motorola to pin down an actual time frame, ‘near future’ will have to suffice.  It could be worse Droid owners – you could be running MOTOBLUR on Android 1.5 like Backflip, Devour, Cliq, and Cliq XT users.

According to a leaked screenshot obtained by AndroidCentral, U.S. Cellular will be carrying the 10.1-inch, dual-core processor tablet sometime in the second quarter.

    Here we go again. Didn't we get to wait months before the first "(2.1) upgrade coming soon" announcement and the actual update occurring? I'm not going to waste energy this time wandering the boards, I'm going to let myself be pleasantly surprised when I get the actual update notice.

    Near future will turn into a rushed expected date and then a delay! That is my prediction.
