Creative is now listing the Creative ZiiO 7 as an Android 2.2 device on their online store, and will be shipping the devices with the firmware update for all international customers. This is inline with Creative's communication with various users for a mid-March Android 2.2 firmware update.

Creative is going to release the update for existing owners as soon as next week via an installable apk. Sounds easy enough.

Here's the full press release from CreativeZiiO on Facebook:
