Android 2.2 Coming to Droid “Soon”
Anyone with a passing interest in smart phones has heard a lot about Android 2.2 lately (or “Froyo,” as its known). If you’ve got a slightly older Android phone, you may be wondering if the improved version of the operating system is coming your way. The short answer is yes, it is – at least if you have a popular Google phone like the Droid. Here’s the official statement from Motorola:
“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.”
Excellent. Froyo adds several new features to the operating system and reportedly boosts performance speeds by 450%. As a Droid owner, I’ll be upgrading as soon as possible.
