It was confirmed last week that the original Motorola Droid will be receiving an OTA update starting August 2nd for the much anticipated Froyo version of the highly acclaimed Android OS.
For Droid-users this is a wonderful bit of news as summer draws to an end. This update should have many new features that users have been harping for since the Droid came out last year.
I, for one, am anticipating the addition of two new home screens as I have sadly run out of space on the three that comes by default. Curses on the devs providing so many fun widgets that I just don't have the room for.
But now the question is posed, will this be the final update original Droid users receive?
There are talks that the next release after v2.2 will require a higher processor capacity than what the original Droid can handle. That wouldn't be the smartest move by Google or their partners.
I understand shelf-life of technology is getting shorter every day. But when you exclude a phone from updates and its not even a year old yet? That is just poor business in my opinion.
Time will tell.
At the moment, I'm just eagerly awaiting my update this week.
I'll post a review of this once I have a chance to get my feet wet. Stay tuned...
