Motorola CLIQ has finally seen its Android 2.1 Eclair update released. The software - available through Motorola's support site - takes up 40MB of internal phone storage and takes the CLIQ from 1.5 Cupcake to 2.1, complete with MOTOBLUR. We'll be interested to hear how you get on with the update, so let us know in the comments.
begun to push out its Android 2.2 Froyo update for the HTC Desire. The product page for the Desire - which launched running Android 2.1 Eclair - has been updated with the message "Upgrade your HTC Desire to Android 2.2 today" along with a list of new features. Android Community reader Donald called TELUS, who confirmed that the Desire update is going out OTA from today. However it's yet to show up on his handset, which suggests it's a staggered release rather than a mass push-out. [Thanks Donald!]
We have heard that 2.2 on the Streak will be available before years end, but with halting 2.1 preparation we can expect that we will see it even earlier than expected. With Gingerbread coming up quickly device manufacturers will have to push out update quickly before they get too far behind. Official Announcement Via Dell "Hi Folks, Due to resources and commitments to get our global customers the 2.2/Froyo update by the end of the year, we will not be publishing another version of 2.1 nor will we be pushing out 2.1 to additional customers. I know many of you have requested that we publish specific dates for Android OS updates; however, because there are so many variables (some outside of our control), we cannot make a specific commitment other than we will be publishing 2.2 by the end of this year to all of our Dell Streak customers. I can tell you that our target date is NOT December 31st. In fact, the over-the-air update to 2.2 is target date is much sooner than that. Please stay tuned here to the Mobile Devices Forum board announcements or follow @DellCares on Twitter for more information. Thanks again for your feedback, Amy" [Via Dell Support Forums]
