False starts be damned, the Droid Incredible upgrade to Froyo is on its way today. An update was rumored to begin last week but things never panned out; however, the Verizon Support staff has confirmed that the Incredible update is beginning August 27, 2010. Looking at my calendar, that just happens to be today.

I’m sure you’ve stopped reading by now and ran to your phone to check if the update has been sent, but you may not be among the first batch of users to get the update. Keep in mind that not everyone will get the update today, so don’t fret if you see an update notice over the next two weeks.

The update will bring 720p video recording, which should make for better quality videos that you’ll be able to play at a larger resolution. Today’s over-the-air update also adds required support for cool Froyo features like Chrome/Firefox to Phone and Adobe Flash 10.1. When you grow tired of those features, as if, also look out for better Exchange support and numerous changes to the Sense UI.
