We sent an email out to Motorola to find out if the Motorola CLIQ, CLIQ XT, and the DROID would get the new Android 2.2 operating system. Motorola emailed us back today with the following statement:

"We're excited to see Google's news of the next version of the Android operating system and look forward to integrating it on our Android-based devices as it's made available to the open source community. We do expect DROID by Motorola users will receive Android 2.2 as a software upgrade in the near future." An Android 2.2 update for Google's Nexus One began rolling out over the weekend.

I for one don't believe it. We (Droid users) first heard we were going to get 2.1 in January. Then it was "soon". In the end, we didn't get it until April. One big reason I bought the Droid was because it was a "Google Experience" phone. Supposedly, without something like Sense UI or Motoblur, we were supposed to be able to get upgrades quickly. But, in fact, they are pretty slow to release.

so considering that motorola said, the Droid will get the update and not mentioning either cliq and xt. both cliqs will probably not get the update

My first several phones were all Motorola and I loved them all, then they went to making garbage. I again took the risk on the CLIQ, and other than it's outdated software I love it, but once again Motorola is proving me wrong for risking money on products that they won't support. Time to put Motorola on the DO NOT BUY list permanantly.

It's ridiculous, soon? The near future? What a joke...Motorola can bite me. Here it is 30days after the announcement. Why announce anything at all if it's not coming? If you hack your phone you can get it. If not you're screwed...lame, lame.
