The wait for Android 2.1 on the Motorola Backflip has been a long, arduous one for those who purchased the phone, but it looks like the wait is finally over. Thanks to an internal AT&T document, we can now comfortably confirm that the Over the Air update to Android 2.1 for the Android-based handset is on its way, and soon.
The document shows that the update process actually began on November 3rd, when 1,000 “lucky” Backflip owners were chosen via the Motorola forums to test out the Android 2.1 update before the official launch. If you weren’t selected to test the update, then you’ll have to wait until November 9th, when the update will become available “in all markets.” According to some early testers, the update makes the device a lot snappier, which should make plenty of owners happy. If you were lucky enough to be included, let us know how the update is going for you.
