Droid X getting Froyo this Wednesday

A PDF posted over on Verizon's support website has revealed that Android 2.2 is coming to the Droid X this Wednesday.

It's Froyo time! Well, almost. Verizon has announced that the Droid X will finally be getting the Android 2.2 update this coming Wednesday, 22nd September.

A rumor surfaced a few days ago that suggested that the long-awaited update was but a few days away, but a PDF found over on Verizon's support pages confirms the forthcoming Froyo update for Droid X.

The Android update is reported to come in at a download size of 67.6MB, and it will actually include version 2.3.15 of Google's mobile operating system. Froyo is version 2.2 of the Android OS, so we're not entirely sure why the PDF references version 2.3.15, but we assume it's a special Droid X-specific build of Froyo. For those who don't know the latest update will bring improved application switching, Flash support, enhanced browser performance and more.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
