As a response to Sprint’s release of the Froyo update for HTC EVO 4G, Verizon has just announced it’ll launch the Android 2.2 upgrade for its Motorola Droid units. The update will come this week, but no certain date was mentioned just yet. This means you’ll be getting mobile hotspot features on and 720p video capture support on your Droid.

Europeans should fret not, as their own flavor of Froyo will land on their Milestone units soon enough. Let’s just hope that this Android 2.2 release is less bugged than the one for HTC Desire.

    This is the second mention I've seen of the Froyo update comming out this week for the Motorola Android! Weather its bugged or not, I would still like to have the 2.2 froyo update (although id prefer it to be unbugged). The Froyo later releases can fix the bug issues but I'm die'n to have flash while browsing on my Moto Droid. I'm going to check youtube to see how people are reacting to their 2.2 update for the HTC desire.
