We heard earlier today that EVO owners would be getting Android 2.2 starting next week. Don't fret, Moto DROID owners, as Verizon has just confirmed that your device will also be receiving the update to Froyo beginning next week. There was no news on exactly when the upgrade will hit or if any other devices will get the call. As long as Froyo is hitting more devices, though, I don't mind.
This is great news for DROID owners, and I'm sure the next time we see Google's Android OS distribution chart, Android 2.2 will see a significant increase. Considering this announcement kind of came out of nowhere, I wouldn't be surprised to learn that VZW threw this together after learning that the EVO would be getting Froyo next week. We'll be sure to keep you updated as we learn more, like precisely when we can expect the update to hit.
