Motorola is already known for spitting out Android phones with old OSes, and the Droid at one point was crawling along in Android 2.0.1 for ages, until Verizon finally decided to do something about it. Interestingly, my friends at SlashGear have pinged Motorola, and got the oh-so-usual-PR-person-like-response in brief:
“We’re excited to see Google’s news of the next version of the Android operating system and look forward to integrating it on our Android-based devices as it’s made available to the open source community.”
While I can’t comment on specifics, we do expect DROID by Motorola users will receive Android 2.2 as a software upgrade in the near future.”
Well, well, well! ‘Tis wonderful good news I suppose!
