Here’s the latest round up on the Android 2.2 (“Froyo”) over-the-air updates coming to Droids.
- Motorola Droid 1 — Froyo is rolling out now in stages. The version of Froyo being distributed is sans Adobe Flash 10.1, which will be available as a download from the Market later this summer.
- HTC Droid Incredible — Mashable’s Ben Parr stuck his neck out and predicts a Wednesday rollout of Froyo. His post suggests that the version rolled out to HTC Droid Incredible’s will come bundled with Adobe Flash 10.1. I want to point out, however, that I reached out to someone in-the-know at Verizon and the Wednesday rollout is UNCONFIRMED.
- Droid X — According to some clues in a Motorola help forum, it appears that the Droid X Froyo rollout will occur in September, not in late August as predicted.
- Droid 2 — The Droid 2 comes with Froyo installed, along with Flash 10.1. I’ve been kind of quiet on the blog but I was itching to write about the Droid 2. As successor to the wildly popular Droid 1, this phone will sell. It looks good but I’m disappointed to see that it has a processor < 1 GHz because there are rumors out there that Android 3.0 (“Gingerbread”) will require 1 GHz or better.
Froyo runs substantially faster than Android 2.1 (“Eclaire”) and brings many new features. Among them, wireless hotspots, USB tethering, and Chrome to Phone to push information from your computer’s Chrome browser right to your phone.
On the Droid Incredible, I would like to see improvements in the antenna, battery life and bluetooth capabilities. Even one of those three would make me a happy camper.
P.S. In case you hadn’t figured it out, “Froyo” stands for frozen yogurt.
