This is hot off the press... Motorola is so apologetic for the delay in release of 2.2 they will be giving $100 gift cards to all DX owners. Honest - the gift cards will be transmitted via text message at the same time as the distribution of the update. I know this because I read it from a blog that was issued by the cousin of a man's wife who somebody knows.

Well Adobe released the Flash update, so if that's what has been stalling things....this might be good news.

If our update depends on adobe flash being secure, then it's never going to see the light of day.

You've go to start having fun with this stuff... I said in another post that, after the update comes, the subject of all these posts will switch to disappointment in the 2.2 version.

This is so much fun.

Most likely a Visa gift card to be used as a chg card or deposited into your checking.
That's how my rebate was.

Except the 2.2 rumors and yadda yadda are far far far more annoying. And will impact people so much less :)

I heard we have to pay $100 to get the update. Android is going to be like windows and charge for each major update.

One of these days 2.2 will arrive then we can move on to the next thing. So I'm going to get a jump on it:

When's 2.3 getting here? Why's it not here yet? What's the hold up? Dammit I want 2.3 now. I'm calling customer service at Verizon and Motorola.

I actually did call Verizon right before my 30 days was up and threatened to turn in my phone for the D2. So some of what I just wrote refers to me.

I hate to sound like a downer, but people are gonna be disappointed when 2.2 hits there devices, because aside from a few tweaks, it's the same phone, same experience.

It's not some holy grail of updates.

Just look'n out for that Flash player. When 2.2 dropped for the EVO, I couldn't tell the difference, aside from a few things. So no "Wow" factor yet.

I applaud your logic and reason.

The update will improve things (and add flash) but it's just an update....:)

Thank you for helping my sanity in these threads.

No after the 2.2 release everyone will switch to when 2.3 or even version 3 will come out. Then the rumors will start again. Its like a circle

I think we should start a limerick challenge for Froyo, here is mine:

There once was Droid and his boyo
who wanted the 2.2 Froyo.
So desperate was he,
that he believed in VZ
and now he has lost all his joyo.

I am sure you were referring to limerick right :p
Props for knowing what one is! :)

I bought my wife a Droid 2 today (which is a really nice phone BTW), and the manager mentioned that she has a Droid X and that she expects the 2.2 update to happen this week. I believe her exact words were, "really soon" and "before the end of the week." We'll see.

didwags - as soon as I posted that I realized I had spelled it incorrectly. Not sure why spell check didn't pick it up (or I just missed the red squiggly).

I can start my haiku with the lead in by Psychotic Penguin:

Holding my breath,
Upgrades of promised future
Distant horizon abounds
Awash in rumors
