File this under "unofficial" for now, but we're getting word on dates for Sprint to update the Samsung Moment, which at current is still running Android 1.5. And even better is that the update reportedly may be Android 2.1, and not merely 2.0 as Sprint told us earlier.
The first wave is said to begin Feb. 22, and you'll have to visit a Sprint store to actually get the upgrade. A pain, yeah. But it also keeps you close to home should anything untoward happen.
The second upgrade wave is said to be on March 8, and that one will be pushed out over-the-air. Thanks, anon.
If this is true, and the Moment get's 2.1 before the Droid does, I will be seriously pi$$ed. The Droid is a top level Android phone, the Moment is not. If Moto or whoever is in charge of Android at VZW doesn't get their act together, I will buy the N1 and dump the Droid as it will be apparent to me that the phone manufacturers are unreliable to keep their products updated after this weeks Moto/Droid 2.1 fiasco. Of course if 2.1 is released tomorrow on the Droid, I will take back everything I just said.
