DROID X Android 2.2 Froyo update benchmarked: it's Fast!

Motorola's DROID X update – taking the Android smartphone to 2.2 Froyo – has only been in the wild for a few hours, but over at Android Community they've already put it through its paces.  Obviously Froyo brings plenty of neat features and a generally tightened-up mobile experience, but we're more interested in what extra speed it squeezes out of the DROID X's 1GHz processor.  Happily, according to Quadrant benchmarking, it's quite an impressive leap.

The DROID X on Froyo scores 1,370, edging ahead of a Google Nexus One running 2.2 and – most importantly – a good hundred points over the same smartphone running Android 2.1 Eclair.  That adds up to a generally faster overall experience day-to-day, and when you consider Froyo also brings with it Flash 10.1 Player support we won't argue with that.  More DROID X Froyo feedback over at Android Community.
