  • Verizon Wireless will begin upgrading its first Motorola Droid to the new OS by July 13, said the Brighthand blog, which noted “unofficial but stable versions of this ROM have already appeared on the Web.” Droidforums.net said the Motorola Droid X will receive Android 2.2 over the air in August. Android 2.2 features significant speed improvements over Android 2.1, as well as new enterprise capabilities for Microsoft Exchange and Gmail, WiFi hotspot enablement and tethering, and a cloud-to-device messaging API.

  • Verizon Wireless on Tuesday issued invitations to the media and asked them to attend an event to be held in New York City. The invitation said that speakers at the event will include Verizon Wireless’ marketing chief, John Stratton; Google’s lead Android architect Andy Rubin; Motorola Co-CEO Sanjay Jha, and Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen. The invitation clearly says that the companies will announce the next Droid handset for the Verizon Wireless network.
    Based on the list of speakers, we can make several assumptions about what’s being announced. First, the device will be made by Motorola (not HTC). Second, since Adobe’s CEO will be present, the device will likely ship with Android 2.2 Froyo and come with Flash Player 10.1 installed. There’s no other reason for Shantanu to be there. The invitation doesn’t share any details about the device itself. The event takes place at Noon on Wednesday, June 23.

  • Conceivably Tech cites anonymous MOTOEXEC who was a little more chatty, talking up a device intended to “incorporate everything that is technologically possible in a smartphone today.” Whoa.

    Manufacturers usually seem to avoid this “smartphone utopia” scenario like the plague, if for no other reason than to avoid destroying sales of current smartphones.

    However, if this 2GHz chip-packing Android-based device with Nvidia Tegra graphics, Flash 10.1, gyroscope, HD video recording and output, HD screen and a greater-than-5-megapixel camera comes to life — especially by the end of this year — we could be looking at just that.

  • Goodbye Shadow, hello Xtreme. New images and details have surfaced of Motorola’s Droid Shadow phone—now branded the Droid Xtreme—which was previously alleged to have been lost in a Verizon gym last week.

    According to DroidLife, the new phone is definitely sporting an 8-megapixel camera and an “HD Video” label around the lens indicates that it’ll be able to shoot movies at a resolution of 720p at least.

    The phone’s UI will run a partially customized UI based on Android 2.1 – at least according to the current batch of pictures that highlight the Xtreme’s interface. It’s unclear whether Motorola will opt for a last-minute upgrade to Android 2.2, or “Froyo,” prior to the device’s rumored July or August release.
