Android 2.2 to hit the Motorola Droid next week?

Get your funny hats and noise makers ready, Droid owners: it’s party time! As long as the note that Verizon just sent over to our buddies over at Engadget holds true, the Droid should be seeing Android 2.2 grace its screen as early as next week.

It won’t be the first Android handset getting the update treatment, but you’ve gotta commend Verizon for staying on top of these updates even as they prepare to make the handset obsolete.
