Motorola DROID 2 with Froyo release date could be August 23

The DROID 2 from Motorola is expected to ship with Android 2.2 (Froyo). Android 2.3 – the Gingerbread man – isn’t quite ready for primetime yet.  That means that the DROID 2 launch date is being pushed back, and based on rumors making their way to our news desk, the Motorola DROID 2 on Verizon will hit store shelves August 23rd. This gives the red checkmark of a service provider enough time to run stability tests for Froyo on the DROID 2.  It will also make things easier for their end users who painstakingly have to upgrade all by themselves.

This timeline fits with other rumor dates that have been thrown out there. The original Motorola DROID, for instance, is expected to get the Android 2.2 Froyo treatment some time next month. The newer DROID X should get the same in August.

    The Motorola DROID continues to present new possibilities every day. I’ve had it for about 10 months and We have had a Blackberry attached to my entire body because September 1998. Being connected is really a vital element of my life so I am usually reachable by household and co-workers. I’m a bit addicted to the Current market for DROID Applications. If the device had unlimited memory I would test the capacity. I think this OS may be the way with the long term and intend to develop with all of you to know it by means of and by means of. Thanks for the post.
