The Samsung Captivate isn't the only phone that's getting an update. The highly anticipated Froyo (Android 2.2) update is now making its way on to Motorola Droid X smartphones. The latest update provides all of the features you've come to expect with Android 2.2 including Flash support, Bluetooth voice dialing, better screen rotation, and an updated 3G mobile hotspot application. You'll also get a handful of bug fixes and other small improvements that are said to improve the handset's performance.
The update will be delivered over the air and should arrive on your handset in the next few days. Once your phone has received the update, you'll see a notification that lets you know it's available. If you're too impatient to wait, you can manually force an update by pressing Menu and opening the Settings menu. From here, select About phone and then choose System Updates.
For users who installed the leaked Android 2.2 ROM, you'll need to roll the handset back to the stock Android 2.1 (Éclair) release in order to receive the official update.
Here's a look at the full list of improvements:
