Verizon confirms original Droid will be getting second Froyo update


It still doesn't add mobile hotspot or tethering functionality, but it looks like users of the original Droid will soon be getting a second Android 2.2 (a.k.a Froyo) update. That's been confirmed by Verizon itself, which says that the second update will be following the just-released one in the "coming weeks," and that it will let users download Flash 10.1 from the Android Market once it's available. Details are light beyond that, but Phandroid notes that the rollout of the current Froyo update is expected to be complete around August 18th, and surmises that the second rollout will begin shortly thereafter.

Verizon owns Engadget's parent company, Oath (formerly AOL). Rest assured, Verizon has no control over our coverage. Engadget remains editorially independent.
