Android 2.1 Update Will Hit Verizon Droid Phones Tomorrow

The Android 2.1 update is coming to the Verizon Droid tomorrow!

What can Droid users expect to get with the Android 2.1 upgrade?


New features will include pinch-to-zoom multitouch support in the browser, Gallery, and Google Maps, the Weather and News widgets made popular on the Nexus One, voice-to-text entry, a new 3D Gallery layout for photos, and even a nice surprise that most people thought wouldn't make it to the Droid: Live Wallpapers.

The update will reportedly be rolled out beginning Thursday March 18 in batches of 250,000. The transfer to the newer operating system will be performed over-the-air.

Android Central
estimates that the updates will begin hitting Verizon Droid phones at around 9 AM PT.
