Motorola promises CLIQ upgrade this week; DROID 2.1 upgrade for end of month with Flash?
Web site droid Life was told the reason for the Android 2.1 upgrade delay for the DROID. A contract worker who does work for Big Red asked a Verizon manager what happened to the update. He was informed that Verizon now plans on rolling out Android 2.1 at the end of this month with Flash included! If true, Verizon and Motorola would be killing two birds with one stone bringing pinch-to-zoom to the browser along with Flash capabilities. DROID owners might call it the happiest day of their life.

In the Deja vu department, Motorola sent out a tweet promising that CLIQ owners would be receiving an upgrade this week. Raise your hand if you've heard this story before. Before you get too excited, no, this is not the 2.1 upgrade. It merely takes care of some light housekeeping like extending battery life and fixing bugs with the GPS and the touchscreen. Again, we will believe it when we see it. Motorola's track record in this area is not exactly golden.

Yes it is, that list you saw was for 2.1. The CLIQ isn't getting 2.1 this week, just a minor upgrade. Please read.

you know, i think you shouldn't complain about it. first off, the cliq came out first, so it should get it first. besides droid has gotten ota's to improve battery and many other bugs. just because the droid sold alot and may be on big red mean diddly squat to me an probably the rest of the community. remember, tmo was here first. not only with the G1, but with the first moto device too. so even if they did get it first you shouldn't cry about it. you'll get yours too. just grab a kleenex and and wipe your keyboard and hug your droid. and yes i commented on your comment. waht are you going to do? type back?
