Froyo OTA update expected to hit the DROID X tomorrow

It looks like Motorola’s DROID X is finally ready to step up its game with a fresh dose of Froyo.  Motorola promised their customers an Android 2.2 update before the end of summer and it looks like they are delivering right before the buzzer.

The usual Froyo improvements include support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1, improved JavaScript performance in the browser, an improved Android Market with automatic updates, and better search functionality.  Verizon has thrown in a few improvements of their own, such as improved visual voicemail, updated Verizon Navigator, and an improved 3G hotspot app.

Verizon is expected to make the Android 2.2 update available tomorrow.  We’re expecting the update to take a few days (or weeks) to roll out, but if you’re in a bit of a hurry, the DROID X support page has posted up details instructions on how users can download and install the update manually.

Be sure to let us know how Froyo tastes on the DROID X.
