Verizon to Push Froyo to the Droid Next Week!

In an email communication from a Verizon analyst in Corporate Communications named Albert Aydin, we received the following message:

I just wanted to share with you that Verizon Wireless will push Froyo, Android 2.2, to the Droid by Motorola (introduced November 2009) next week.

This came to our inbox just a few minutes ago, confirming all the rumors that we have heard talking about the Froyo push from Verizon.

On a side note, this coincides with our own Aaron Kasten on the AGTN Podcast, who during our Summer Extravaganza dropped that the Droid would be the first Verizon phone to get Froyo officially.

Droid owners, rejoice!

    Can you say Incredible? When, where?

  • Tomaco

    Ok, so you write about every possible phone getting froyo, evo, samsung galaxy, droid but you doesnt do a 'peep' about Htc desire's froyo which was annonced on wednesday, interesting…

  • Theo

    does being pushed mean the ota update will be available? or they will try to make it available?

  • Anyone know if the new update has more battery management on the Droid Incredible?
    The thing is a power killer. Even with AppKiller, I need to recharge once a day with minimal use.

  • Hey I love it. I need something keep it fresh. Thank you for doing this in a timely manner.

  • I have a Droid Eris. Where is my Froyo?

  • Craig Taylor

    X? Watta 'bout X?

  • So, will Verizon ship 2.2 with the wireless hotspot disabled so we're forced to use their solution?

    Time will tell….

  • morad

    I will believe it when I see it. Remember 2.1 disaster?

  • Daniel

    I am a patient man. I appreciate that Verizon is taking the time to get it right.

  • I still don’t have the update…..I’m not patient anymore. I placed a tech support email last week and didn’t even get a response.
