We heard rumors earlier in the week that Verizon’s high-end Android phones could all expect to see Android 2.2 next week. With a leak of Froyo for the HTC Droid Incredible and a Sense-enabled Android 2.2 being sent to the EVO 4G soon, it seems likely that this rumor could stick. Confirming at least part of the claims is a report over at Engadget where they received word from Verizon that the original Motorola Droid would be getting the updated firmware sometime in the next week. The hasty announcement is no doubt spurred on by the “competitive” release of Froyo for the EVO, the first handset to get an official update to 2.2 other than Google’s own Nexus One. Good news for owners of the original Droid who just can’t pull the trigger on the Droid X or upcoming Droid 2, as it should breathe some life back into the device that is currently on its way out at Verizon.
