Leaked Droid X Software get a C&D

Last week a early version of the Android 2.2 (Froyo) was leaked by My Droid World and received a C&D and demanded the OS be taken down. Some people ask why would this happen if Android is an open source platform, the answer is that the bare bones android is Open not the branded versions like MOTOBlur and HTC Sense. Once a company makes their own version of Android it becomes copyrighted. The Droid X is said to receive its update by the end of the summer, although I have heard that some Droid users have received the update so if you haven’t gotten your update then you should be receiving it soon. HEY!, SUMMER IS ALMOST OVER! 🙂

Galaxy S Gets Froyo In September

I can’t wait for Froyo to be released for my beloved Samsung Vibrant… With all the talk of the speed increase in Froyo and the fact that the Galaxy S phones are already amazing, I can’t wait to see how the new update performs. Above is the tweet that confirms the release of the update by Samsung UK Mobile. Right now the only phone with 2.2 is the google Nexus One, and next inline are the Droid X on Verizon and the EVO4G on Sprint.

Quadrant Benchmark results in a score of 1299 on the DROID 2 running Android 2.2. Since this is the official successor to the Original DROID some things that consumers complained about were fixed (per-say), the Gold D-pad was removed and replaced with four smaller arrow keys to make room to spread out the keys to make the physical keyboard more comfortable to type on.

The DROID 2 now instead of a ‘Arm Cortex A8 550 mHz Procesor’ it has a much faster ‘1GHz TI OMAP processor’. The device will use the sme version of MOTOblur found on the Droid X. Also included a 5MP camera, 1300 mAh battery and 8GB of internal storage.

So if you currently own the original DROID and are looking to upgrade without losing your physical keyboard that this will be the phone for you.
