Motorola confirms today that the lovely, the wonderful, the affordable Motorola DEFY will be getting Android 2.2 in Europe, the Middle East and Asia! Not until next year though, somewhere around the second quarter of next year. On the other hand, the Milestone XT720 will be staying behind on Android 2.1 looking like a sad little mouse. But remember, everyone, no matter what version of Android you're using, you're still using Android, and that means a lot! Dunk your phone in the pool and rejoice!
The announcement send by Motorola read thusly:
Today we can confirm that in EMEA we plan to upgrade Motorola DEFY to Android 2.2 (FroYo) in the second quarter of next year and that Milestone XT720 will remain on Android 2.1. Anyone looking for information about this and updates for other regions should go to our forum.
