Hell Partially Freezes Over as the Moto Backflip 2.1 Rollout Begins.
As the title says, the wait seems to be over for owners of the Moto Backflip, as Engadget is reporting that the Android 2.1 update for said device is rolling out on a limited basis as of today.
The image to the left says it all. AT&T and Motorola announced on their customer support dash that as of today, 1,000 volunteers are getting the 2.1 update, with the full rollout of the update happening on November 9th. What is interesting is that this is not going to be an “OTA” (over the air) update, but a sideloaded piece of software using a pc. Perhaps this means that users will not have to wait their turn in some virtual line to get 2.1.
Is this a good sign for owners of the Cliq/Cliq XT on T-Mobile? I wouldn’t hold your breath. If there has been anything we can count on with carriers having control of updates, is that said updates will never be on-time, nor will they come fast and furious. If you are the owner of a Backflip, let us know when you get the update!
