Motorola CLIQ to See Android 2.1 Next Month?

Those of you who have stood by your Motorola Cliq, watching other phones pass by, get ready.  Your day is coming!  Android 2.1 is rumored to arrive at some point in the middle of November.  According to information obtained by TmoNews, T-Mobile is set to begin training their employees on the update come November 7 with the rollout expected shortly after.  Finally a bit of good news for early MOTOBLUR adopters, but don’t even begin asking about Android 2.2!

Motorola Xoom Android 3.2 Update Rolling Out, Includes SD Card Support

We first heard about Android 3.2 when Huawei announced their 7-inch MediaPad last month, and we learned that it is essentially a version of Honeycomb that was built with more processors and smaller displays in mind. It would appear that the guys over at DroidLife have gotten their hands on some information, and they’re claiming that the Moto Xoom is getting a 3.2 update that’s already begun to roll out in small batches.

    Umm right, this is about the 5th release date we’ve seen for a CLIQ upgrade. Do you believe it? I don’t!

    I’m rooting my phone this weekend and going to 2.2. Motoblur sucks the life out of the phone anyway, I’ll be glad to get rid of it.

    So, maybe this is a stupid question, but: Why 2.1? I mean, 2.2 has been out for what, 4 months now?

      Because Motorola is terribly slow. That’s why.

        And because the Cliq hardware likely can’t handle 2.2, or it can’t handle Flash which most people would look for with 2.2.

          It’s going to have Flash in it. Even with 2.1. Just like the Cliq XT has with 1.5

    Ahh…remember when this was supposed to be out in June? This was the phone that was supposed to save Moto’s bacon when they were doing so shitty. It’s good to see that they reward those who got it with lies and inattention.
