Droid X getting Froyo this Wednesday

A PDF posted over on Verizon's support website has revealed that Android 2.2 is coming to the Droid X this Wednesday.

It's Froyo time! Well, almost. Verizon has announced that the Droid X will finally be getting the Android 2.2 update this coming Wednesday, 22nd September.

A rumor surfaced a few days ago that suggested that the long-awaited update was but a few days away, but a PDF found over on Verizon's support pages confirms the forthcoming Froyo update for Droid X.

The Android update is reported to come in at a download size of 67.6MB, and it will actually include version 2.3.15 of Google's mobile operating system. Froyo is version 2.2 of the Android OS, so we're not entirely sure why the PDF references version 2.3.15, but we assume it's a special Droid X-specific build of Froyo. For those who don't know the latest update will bring improved application switching, Flash support, enhanced browser performance and more.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
