For those not in the know, Google releases updates for the operating system they run called Android. Each of the updates gets a pet name after some sort of treat, 1.6 was cupcake, 2.1 was eclair, 2.2 was frozen yogurt and 3.0 is planned on being honeycomb when it comes out next year.
This update has been waited on for a while because of internal changes it almost double the browsing speed of the phones that it's installed on and the phone in general runs a lot faster. After seeing the Nexus One, the Droid, the Droid 2, the Evo on Sprint, the Droid Incredible all get their dues, the Droid X is finally getting in on the action. Anyone who has the phone who hasn't gotten the over-the-air update already can pull the update to them by doing:
- Settings -> About Phone -> System Updates
