Motorola DROID will get Android 2.2 in the "near future," but hazy for MOTOBLUR units
posted by John V. / May 21, 2010, 9:15 PM
Although there are some stark commonalities between the DROID and MILESTONE, it would be a safe bet that it could become available around the same time for the latter as well. Interestingly enough, it's a bit difficult to make out the public relations jargon that can some times be misconstrued. Yes, the DROID will see it in the “near future” while it's unclear if and when Motorola's MOTOBLUR devices will see it. Based on the conversation, Motorola is intent on integrating it in their Android-based devices, but it could potentially mean that MOTOBLUR devices could be left out of the mix. If it does become a reality that they will bring it aboard, there would probably be a bit amount of time before we see it as most of them are still awaiting Android 2.1

What are you talking about? Keep whining, it's very attractive. And learn to count.. the Droid started with 2.0, an update was released for it to version 2.1 weeks ago, but i guess you were too busy b*tching to catch that. That makes less than one version of the OS you're behind, if you call waiting for 2.2 just like the rest of the world "behind".

2009 all over again, if the droid will get it in the so called "NEAR FUTURE", then theres no telling when Mytouch 3g slide, HTC Evo 4g, or the Droid Incredible will get it. We all know its gonna come until at least fall,(if were lucky)..................smh

Thats nothing people - think about all the devices still running 1.5\1.6!!! You all complain that you need to wait for the 2.2 - but some devices are still on the waiting list for a newer OS.. like Samsung Android ones, the Sony X10 which still runs 1.5 iirc, as well as the hero, the G1 and the magic.

Well I did some research and indeed found that the G1 only has 192 MB of RAM.. so that must be the reason it didn't recieve any updates after 1.6.. but the Samsung Galaxy also has 192 MB of ram , and WILL be getting Android 2.1 as evidenced by this article http://www.techradar.com/news/
And even besides that - there are still quite a few other devices stuck in 1.5\1.6 out there.

MotoBlur seems like it's for teens. Now with the Shadow and D2 coming, why do they continue to use this junk? Unfortunately, I'm kinda turned of my moto since the Razr. That was 2 yrs I couldn't wait to end.
