The wait is almost over for those digging their fingernails into their kneecaps over Android 2.1 for Motorola Cliq. Word on the street is that a couple thousand super lucky users have been asked to run a bit of Eclair – field trials are on their way toward being under way. Eclair may have already been leaked for Cliq, but this field test means the real, full deal is on the way officially.

Word came from the Motorola Owners Forum where owners of the CLIQ were asked if they’d like to participate in the test of 2.1, having them register and hope for one of the 2,000 spots. If you’d like to be one of those people, head on over to [this registration form] and sign yourself up. Eclair is still slated for release in late Q3 to early Q4.
