Earlier today Google released revision 1 of the Android 2.0.1 SDK. Android 2.0.1 is a minor update to the 2.0 software that is running on the Motorola DROID for Verizon Wireless in the U.S. and the Motorola Milestone variant that is being sold in some European countries. A new revision of the Android 1.6 SDK was also released.
Verizon spokesperson Brenda Boyd Raney informed us this evening that Motorola DROID users should expect to receive an over the air update of the Android 2.0.1 operating system on their phones in the coming weeks. We were told that the most notable improvements to the DROID will be found in the camera's autofocus function and in voice reception during calls.
On a related note, we were also informed that the rumored "buy one, get one" deal that was being reported on today is, indeed, true, but that it is an HTC DROID Eris promotion. Users can buy one DROID Eris and receive a second free, with an appropriate contract. Users who buy a Motorola DROID will also be eligible to receive a DROID Eris for free. We expect the promotion to start on Friday, December 4.
