Motorola today backed off the announcement it made earlier this week promising Android 2.1 for the Droid cell phone by week’s end.
The announcement, revealed on Motorola’s Facebook page earlier this week got Droid users excited, as the major update, with multi-touch support and lots more was finally to arrive, but it wasn’t to be.
According to BGR the announcement was made in haste, and was never really true. Ouch.
“According to Matt, forums manager over at Motorola, the information was prematurely released” and that “the DROID update page on Motorola’s website has been pulled and all links to the update page have been deleted from the forums.”
As a Motorola Droid owner, this is painful news. I was looking forward to this all week, constantly checking my phone for the update, but no, I was lied to!
When the update finally does roll out, we’ll update the story!
