Verizon Delays Android 2.1 OTA Update

March 18th, 2010 3:52pm Leave a comment

Way back in January, Motorola and Verizon announced that there would be an over the air software push to the Motorola Droid, upgrading it from Android 2.0.1 to 2.1 “soon.” Three months later, and two days ago – we finally heard of a 3/18 release date. Not so much.

This newest version of Android’s OS has new widgets, multitouch, 5 home screens instead of 3, a 3D app drawer (which I think was pulled from the Droid but works on the Nexus One) and live wallpapers (which thye we’rent going to include but decided to). Official notice from Verizon:

The 3/18 OTA software update will not happen as planned. A new date will be communicated as soon as possible.”

While you’re “delaying it,” you might as well add in the new Google Maps 4.1 that was just released yesterday -I heard it’s got some killer improvements. Actually, if they were smart, this should be the reason the update wasn’t released.
