Has Verizon and Motorola Suspended Android FroYo 2.2 Updates?

Has Motorola and Big Red suspended all OTA updates of Google Android 2.2 to their Android smartphones?

If MyDroidWorld and Droid-Life (link 1, link 2) are correct, there seems to be problems between the new Android OS and Adobe's Flash Player, and Pandora.

"Motorola and Verizon are pulling all FRG Froyo builds and ceasing any current plans to update to Froyo. Seems there is a problem between Google and Adobe concerning flash, rights, and royalties. This comes as quite a surprise to us as it will others."

Personally, I'm a little bit skeptical of that statement.  You would think that Google and Adobe would have there ducks, and lawyers, in a row before the software goes out the door.  I quick Google search, ya, I should have used Bing this time out, finds an article from Examiner.com that seems to backup the Google/Verizon/Adobe claims until you start checking the links and see that they reference MyDroidLife too.

So how about it Droid Nation on Big Red; are you getting your FroYo on? Drop us a line and let us know.
