Android 2.1 making its way toward the Motorola DROID?
According to a report by Engadget, the Android 2.1 update is on its way to the Motorola DROID, undergoing testing by Verizon. The good news is that there will be multi-touch in the browser which will placate all of the pinch-to-zoom fans. Although it is already available in the Android Market, Google Goggles will be part of the update as will be the news and weather widgets that we have seen on the Nexus One.

What is not coming over with the update? The animated wallpaper that has become a trademark of the N-One will not make the move to the DROID, leaving the latter with the static homepage it currently has along with the pop-up app shelf.. For some DROID owners, that might be a disappointment. On the other hand, there are many owners of the Time Magazine 2009 Gadget of the Year that are not as thrilled with the Nexus One's wallpaper and are just as happy to have the home pages as they currently are. It would seem that as long as the multi-touch crowd gets to flick on the browser, anything else is just gravy.
