Motorola Tweaks Android Update Timeline… For the worse

If you own a MOTOBLUR device you already realize that your phones potential for updates is dwindling. While Motorola prepares it’s upcoming devices for Android 2.2 and beyond, Cliq, Cliq XT, and Backflip owners are waiting on a 2.1 update that may never even come to release.

The Motorola support forum has updated their Android timeline once again and the news gets worse for some.  Once expected to get the update in second quarter of this year, the CLIQ and CLIQ XT are looking at late Q3/early Q4, at the same time as the Backflip.  The Devour, however, will stay where it is because that's what Motorola believes is the "best combined hardware and software experience".  The same goes for international QUENCH, DEXT, and BACKFLIP devices.

No word yet on any plans for 2.2, but if I owned one of these devices I would set my expectations on Eclair, at the very most.
