After what must seem like an eternity to Motorola Droid owners, Android 2.1 could start rolling out to handsets this afternoon. That is, of course, provided you believe the Engadget report from today.
The site got its hands on an internal Verizon e-mail that was sent out early this morning, and, from what we can tell, all signs point to it being legitimate. We've asked Verizon for confirmation and will let you know when we have a reply.
According to Engadget, 1,000 people will receive notification today that an update is available for their phones. Another 9,000 will see this message by midnight tonight, but the rollout won't hit full steam until Thursday when it goes out to 200,000 users a day until everyone is blanketed.
