Droid X Froyo coming on Wednesday, Verizon announces

The Motorola Droid X officially will get its Android 2.2 update starting Wednesday, according to a note Verizon just dropped in our inbox. Here's the word:

Verizon Wireless will begin pushing Android 2.2, Froyo, to the DROID X by Motorola tomorrow. Customers do not have to wait for the over the air push, they can obtain the official update via the device itself by following these steps: "Menu" > "Settings" > "About Phone" > "System Updates". For more information and step-by-step instructions please visit www.verizonwireless.com/DroidXsupport.

And you read that right: You won't actually have to wait for the update, you should be able to go and get it. (And there shouldn't be any shenanigans like with AT&T.) More in the Droid X forums!
