Motorola Droid: Android 2.1 update delayed, Verizon customers not happy

By Alan Ng - Mar 18, 2010

Well we didn’t see this coming, did you? It has been reported that the long awaited Android 2.1 OS upgrade for Motorola Droid users, has been delayed until further notice.

As reported from BGR, the update was expected to start rolling out to Droid owners today and over the weekend, but now it has been postponed and no ETA on when it will be back on course.

The reason for the delay? Apparently a bug was found late last night, which has been causing all the problems. When we know more, we’ll let you know.

Let us know your thoughts on this.

    Haha I think it's funny that everyone loved their droid…but then when they hear there is an update coming suddenly they hate the droid they have now and NEED the update and it makes them so mad to keep hearing about it and not getting it haha. I was happy wiith my phone last month..and yup still happy with it today. I don't need the update..however, yes some of the things on it improves upon are gonna be cool. People just always need to keep getting new toys man I swear..some of you sound like little bratty kids that didnt get the toy they wanted haha grow some patience and grow up

    The i-phone is a great phone and that is why I bought the Motorola Droid. Impeccable logic! You just pulled a Dan Quayle, much like when he said, I love Southern California I grew up in Phoenix. Good work Frank!

    Jerry – You don’t like the Droid and you think the iPhone is superior? Did you know that in the first 74 days of sales that the Droid outsold the iPhone’s first 74 days of sales? I have had my Droid for over a month and it is so much better than the iPhone. In fact, Steve Jobs is so scared of Android phones taking his customers that he is suing HTC and fighting with Google. Not so bad, huh?

    And, Joe – This isn’t a professional corporate board or a grammar class. Get over yourself you arrogant, self exalting moron.

      This isn't "android" or it's parent company Google. The android 2.1 os has been out and working for months. This is Motorola getting the OS improvements being ported to the hardware. Apple doesn't have this problem because they only have one hardware format to support. There are a dozen plus android platforms out there.
