All those with Motorola devices on the new list of the abandoned phones list, at least as far as updates to Android. This list includes the Motorola Clique Xt, the Motorola i1, Motorola Flipout, and Motorola Charm. Both the Flipout and the Charm are currently (and will be forever more) at Android 2.1, while the Xt and i1 is and will now forever be on Android 1.5. Owners of these devices are more than likely going to be neither surprised nor emotionally damaged by this decision, especially since this is a basic procedure for a load of brands pushing out Android phones this day and age.
If you own an Motorola CLIQ XT and you have been counting the days until the much anticipated Android 2.1 update landed of the phone we have some really bad news for you. Prepare to have your Friday ruined. Motorola has announced on its official forums that the update isn't coming.
Motorola has just pushed out an update for the CLIQ XT that provides improvements to the phones overall performance. The update pegged at 1.32.20 is available now and also updates Swype Software, and touch screen sensitivity and response.
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.
