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.

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
