Android 2.1 will make its way to the Samsung Moment on February 22?
There are a lot of Android handsets that are anticipating to see Android 2.1 land some time soon to existing models, but now the Samsung Moment can be added to the list with a potential date lined up. Although the Moment is still running Android 1.5 and could've been easily lost among the other big named Android phones expected to make the transition to 2.1, it may see light sooner than expected – the first wave is expected to happen beginning on February 22. Unfortunately it will not be an over the air process, instead it will require owners to visit Sprint stores to actually get it installed. It's still not a terribly bad thing when you consider that the Samsung Moment is reported to get 2.1 as opposed to 2.0. If you do plan on skipping the first wave, then you can sit back at home as the second one will go live on March 8 – that one will be pushed out via OTA process.  It's yet another reason why Samsung Moment owners can rejoice – let's just hope it comes out on time with the latest version

i can understand why the phones with custom UI's on their android havent gotten it yet (ie, hero/eris, cliq) because of having to make the UI's compatable w/ the newer system, but why the heck havent ALL the base androidphones been updated to atleast 2.0? It has to be some kind of exclusivity window for the nexus one to get people to buy the phone.. thats really all I can think of. Get all the androids on one platform dangit. enough of the staggering!!

Speaking of the Hero (CDMA, its a nice phone!) HTC released a refresh of the MyTouch...How about a refresh of the Hero? There is a design flaw as the menu and home buttons are "foil" and ive seen them fall apart around 60-90 days of use. Put a real button there like the MyTouch and make the phone thinner... If Sprint would have more subscribers and sell more phones they would have more phones, get new phones faster, and then as a result subscribers would not have to wait forever for software updates. Android updates should have been released a month after the droid was released. With out the update Sprint customers have missed out on apps requiring the updated software like Google Goggles among others...its things like this that convince me that Sprint offers an inferior wireless experience. Stop the disappointments and get out there and do it big like the 4G gangsters you are!!
