Motorola Comments on Android 2.1 Delay
Motorola released a statement regarding their 2.1 update of the Android OS. Although Verizon has informed it’s subscribers that a release is coming soon, there’s still no word on when the update will actually be deployed. Verizon has distributed the update in limited quantities, testing the software in small samples before issuing a complete release.
“We know you guys are anxiously awaiting the upgrade from 2.0 to 2.1,” Motorola stated on its Facebook page. “We want to ensure you have the best possible experience on your device; as a result, the rollout is taking longer than expected. Though we don’t have the new deployment date to share just yet, we do promise we are working to get you updated information and will relay it as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience. We appreciate it!”
Many Verizon users have waited for the update for the 2.1 update on their Android phones for quite some time. The 2.1 upgrade will improve the device’s speed, as well as a new search results screen, a Latitude widget, live wallpapers, and provide pinch-to-zoom multi-touch capabilities.
