Verizon has announced an update to their just released Droid X, offering a range of minor fixes and speed boosts. The update is reportedly being pushed over-the-air (OTA) to Droid X devices on July 19th, however Verizon has not yet announced the official day. The update comes after criticisms of the highly anticipated device denounced it for numerous instances of lag and software hiccups.
The Droid X packs a 4.3in Touch Screen with an 8MP camera and a 1GHz processor, capable of the impressive speeds that have led recent high-end Android devices to become extremely popular. Sales of the Droid Incredible were delayed by nearly a month due to shortages in hardware under the extreme demand, and the Droid X is already experiencing delays of at least a week.
Additionally, the Droid Incredible is announced as having an update due either in late July or early August, adding originally a higher recording resolution of 720p and the option of wireless tethering. Tethering would allow the Incredible to act as a mobile hotspot, if your data plan allows, and the higher video recording would put it on par with the Droid X and HTC’s Evo 4G available through Sprint. Recent rumors have speculated the addition of the much anticipated Android 2.2 to be pushed to the phones at the same time, though Verizon has yet to confirm.
