After a false alarm earlier this month, it looks like Verizon is finally starting to rollout a software update this afternoon that will update Motorola Droid users phones from Android 2.0 to Android 2.1.

The update will add support for multitouch gestures such as pinch to zoom, the new weather and news widget available on the nexus One, voice-to-text support for text entry areas, Live wallpapers, and a 3D gallery application. Google Googles also comes preloaded, and Droid users will be able to use Yahoo Mail.

According to Engadget the software update should be hit the first 1,000 users right about… now. Additional customers will get the update over the next few days.
