Update smooths out X's kinks, Froyo coming incredibly soon
Verizon's top-tier Android devices, the HTC DROID Incredible and
newly launched Motorola DROID X
, are both receiving OTA software updates. According to
oy Genius Report
the Incredible will be getting some much anticipated Android 2.2 Froyo love in the next few weeks, while the X's upgrade will merely smooth out some kinks in the handset.
Verizon began rolling out the minor upgrade to the X yesterday. According to the carrier,
Version 1.13.604.MB810.Verizon.en.US/Baseband: BP_C01.09.04P
includes the following:
+ Improved battery charging status indicator.
+ Smoother transition for camera and camcorder functions.
+ Redesign of weather widget icons.
+ Faster Exchange ActiveSync® email loading.
+ Streamlined organization of newly downloaded applications.
+ Organized favorite contacts by call count.
+ Updated Bluetooth® connection for enhanced video
+ Coordinated date and time across phone displays.
+ Cleaner looking status bar for GPS symbol.
+ Improved sync capabilities for 3G Mobile Hotspot.
+ Faster Visual Voice Mail loading.
+ Take advantage of the enhanced, preloaded My Verizon application.
+ Preloaded Amazon Kindle® application lets you read Kindle books on
your AndroidTM phone, including thousands of free books.
As for the Incredible,
received a tip from an HTC e-mail that promised an upgrade including Froyo by "the end of the month/first part of August". Other upgrade highlights are 802.11n Wi-Fi support, 3G Mobile Hot Spot, a couple new HTC widgets, 720p video recording, and Skype.
Both handsets are available from Verizon Wireless for $199.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate and a qualifying two-year service agreement. The devices are very similar in features and form factor, but the Droid X boasts a larger 4.3" screen that rivals
Sprint's EVO 4G

Moto's eFuse is the deal breaker for me. I have an Incredible, and if someone handed me a free Droid X, I'd keep using the Incredible. Aesthetics don't even come in to play.
