I did, and I love it, so I'm glad an update will come this year.

Cool by then maybe all the bugs will be fix,i'd never buy one; not my cup of tea, by then there will be 2.2 or greater. Thats ATT always a step behind.

Yea...that's why the cliq on tmobile is behind and the devour doesn't even have a time placed yet for verizon...yea, all cuz AT&T is always a step behind. Get your facts straight.

fyi the reason the backflip is taking forever to get 2.1 is all on moto not att.....blur is not set up yet to work with 2.1 so until moto gets that worked out you will not see 2.1 on the backflip.....all other att android phones will be launching with 2.1.............

If they get any new Android phones. Verizon still has a step ahead of the rest.

What puts Verizon a step ahead? Actually, I don't think Verizon is ahead. They are all leveling up to each other.

Verizon has more Android devices than AT&T and they have the DROID. The DROID itself has really high ratings. Everywhere you go that has customer ratings gives the Motorola DROID really good ratings. I have one and I have to say its the best phone I've owned. Its not as "diva" as the iPhone but it does what its built to do, and it does alot! Also Verizon has the network to back it up, both voice and 3G. So thats why I say Verizon is a step ahead.

Hm, I think right now there's only 3 droid phones on verizon, right? Droid, Devour, and Eris, which is soon to leave sadly. AT&T has the backflip and technically the Nexus One since it's out. (I know verizon is getting it, but then we would have to go into further detail about the future since there are now more announced phones for all carriers and that would take too much time :]) T-Mobile has the nexus one, G1, Cliq, Cliq XT, and...I don't feel like looking it up. and sprint has quite a few as well, right? I wouldn't say they are a step ahead in Androids. Network wise, they will most likely pass sprint with their upgrade, but as for cell phones, I'd say its a pretty close game. I haven't seen the Droid (Ive definitely heard good things about it) but I've seen the Nexus One, which I will say is absolutely amazing.
