Motorola CLIQ, CLIQ XT and BACKFLIP now set for Android 2.1 upgrade in early Q4
Motorola has updated its timeline for when owners of certain Android models can expect to receive an upgraded Android OS. For example, on T-Mobile, owners of the Motorola CLIQ had been expecting to receive their Android 2.1 upgrade in the third quarter. Now Motorola is pushing this back to Q4 along with the 2.1 upgrade for the CLIQ XT (also on T-Mobile) and the BACKFLIP on AT&T.

While we already reported that the Motorola DEVOUR was not going to be upgraded past the Android 1.6 build that the phone was launched with by Verizon, the official language from Motorola says that the phone will remain on Android 1.6 "for the best combined hardware and software experience"-a rather nice way to say that the phone doesn't meet the necessary specs for upgrade.

Now that owners of the first-gen Motorola DROID are kickin' with Flash 10.1, and with the sequel model loaded with Froyo and Flash Player out of the box, that leaves the giant DROID X left to receive an OTA upgrade among Motorola's DROID handsets. The latest word from the Schaumburg based company is that DROID X owners will get their Froyo in the late Summer. Unlike the two-part upgrade that first-gen DROID owners had to endure, owners of the "X" should be able to download Flash Player after just one upgrade.
