Motorola releases official Android upgrade schedule Motorola has released their official Android upgrade schedule, giving some long-time owners a set timetable for updates to their smartphone operating system.
A few of the devices are still running Android 1.6, or even 1.5, and are in desperate need of an update.

The schedule:

North America
Droid X by Motorola (USA): Upgrade to Android 2.2 planned for late summer
Devour (USA): Will not have a software upgrade to Android 2.1
Backflip, Cliq and Cliq XT (USA): Upgrade to Android 2.1 (testing in process) planned for late Q3/early Q4
All Android 2.1 and 2.2 upgrades for Canada are under evaluation only. This includes the Backflip, Dext, Milestone, Quench

Europe
Milestone: Initial rollout of upgrade to Android 2.2 planned for Q4
Backflip and Dext: Will not have software upgrades to Android 2.1

Asia-Pacific
Milestone, Motoroi and Titanium (all Korea): Initial rollout of upgrades to Android 2.2 planned for Q4

It is this kind of crap that Android's "Open Source Platform" claimed to prevent. It really sickens me that google seems to want to kill their own product through lack of support...google needs to get to work writing their own drivers and kernels, so that when they release gingerbread, they can release it to everyone at once, without any of the "MotoBlur" or "HTC Sense" crap.
