Froyo could be coming to a whole swath of next-gen Android smartphones in the immediate future. AndroidSpin reports that 2.2 is expected to hit on the Droid, Droid X and Incredible at some point in the next week.Updates can be performed over the air….

With each recurring release of Google’s Android mobile operating system comes a whole slew of new features. The open source operating system first launched back in 2007 as Android 1.0 with the release of the T-Mobile G1. At the time it wasn’t a very full featured mobile operating system but it did show immense potential especially thanks to the fact that it open source allowing the community to update and upgrade the operating system on their own.

However, the only problem with Google’s Android mobile operating is the slow roll out that carriers have had with the software. If you’ll remember, the chart we showed you not too long ago of Android market share let u know that just about 50% of Android powered devices were running version 2.1. However, it showed that only about 3.3% of devices were running Froyo, the latest version of Android.

We’ve just been dropped a brief note from Verizon that the original Droid will be getting the full Froyo treatment at some point next week.

Luckily, the time of official roll outs is growing ever closer with various manufacturers announcing that they will be releasing the Android 2.2 across their lineup of handsets at some point in the near future. Today, it was announced that Motorola will be releasing the Android 2.2 update for their popular Droid handset starting next week.

There isn’t much else Motorola has decided to announce on top of the fact that Android 2.2 will be released tomorrow so many have speculated that Motorola rushed things to compete with Sprint’s announcement that the EVO 4G would be getting upgraded to Android 2.2.

If you’re not familiar with Android 2.2 it will bring with it performance and speed improvements to the operating system, a faster and more powerful web browser and some new enterprising capabilities.

Considering the brevity of the announcement, it’s entirely possible that this was thrown together in response to Sprint’s EVO news but who cares? The more Android 2.2, the better, right? No official word on other Droid variants most of which are likely going to see Froyo updates soon but we’ll be keeping our ears firmly planted to the ground.

    You would think such a slick electronic piece would come up with a more creative mascot. I thought that green alien represented a cartoon.
