Motorola’s Android Update Site Gets Refreshed, Doesn’t Look Promising

As Motorola has released more devices, and let them loose around the world, they've had one site that owners could visit to check on the schedule for impending updates to their particular handset. Covering devices that have released in the Unites States, and all around the world, it's a quick and easy way to see if your device is getting updated to the latest and greatest software version. Unfortunately, it doesn't always have the best news. With their latest refresh of the site, Motorola hasn't gone out of their way to make a lot of owners happy, and some devices look like they're going to be eternally stuck at lesser versions of Android (at least, officially).

It looks like Samsung is ready to give owners of the Epic 4G, the Galaxy S variant that released earlier in the year for the Sprint Network. If a leaked screen shot is any indicator, then Sprint is getting ready to release the Android 2.2 update in an Over the Air update, beginning the day after Christmas.

Dell Streak for O2 UK Update to Android 2.2 Rolling Out This Week

The Dell Streak, which launched earlier this year with Android 1.6 on board, has seen a pretty aggressive update schedule since it hit the market.

NOOKcolor Getting Update to Android 2.2 in January [Update]

For those out there who purchased the newest eReader from Barnes & Noble, the NOOKcolor offers up plenty of options out of the box, but for those who think outside of the box, the device has an almost unlimited potential. And that's all thanks to the Android platform ticking away under the hood. While we've already seen Android 2.2 hacked onto the device, it looks like Barnes & Noble is confident in their update strategy, to confirm that the eReader will be seeing the official update in just a matter of weeks.

Brand New Android Marketplace User Interface Available NOW (via ripped APK)

Of course, not officially, as it was just announced last night and said to be available within the next couple weeks, but a good XDA Developer will never let you down, right? For sure. So what they've done over there is no less than rip the APK for this new layout and make it available for everyone RIGHT THIS MINUTE. It currently only functions on stock Android 2.2 Froyo devices, and implements such features as a brand new lovely look and a 15 minute refund limit.

Android 2.3 Gingerbread Update Confirmed by HTC (sort of)

When asked by Marc Chacksfield of TechRadar wheather or not they'd be updating (specifically) their HTC Desire HD device to Gingerbread, HTC has stated they'd be updating a number of their devices. Does this mean that the Desire HD will be getting the update, or that because they didn't name it specifically, it'd be left out? Either way, "a number of devices" is exciting.
