I’m sure you’ve heard the rumor regarding the upgrade to Android 2.2 for Verizon’s Motorola Droid X coming on September 22nd (2.2 on 22, if you want to be cute), and you may have passed your own judgment on its believability. It looks like the 22nd might be the date after all, though, as it’s still technically qualified as end of summer and because the PDF file dedicated to the upgrade to Android 2.2 for the device has just made its way online courtesy of Verizon themselves. Let’s take a look inside, shall we?
+ Improved Web browsing with pre-installed Adobe® Flash® Player
10.1 for Android.™
+ Easily switch between the eight most recent applications.

either to the left or to the right when moving from portrait to
landscape mode—to work with apps in more directions.

downloaded with automatically updated Android Market™

This is versioned “Version.2.3.15.MB810.Verizon.en.US/BP _ C _ 01.09.07P”, though the document doesn’t give us a specific date to expect it (only “today”, which is useless given we have no hard evidence to go by to determine relativity.) I can feel it, folks. Just keep on holding on!
Take a look inside the PDF file for yourself for the full (and better organized) text. [Thanks, Mason!]
