Is Android 2.1 coming in January?
Its a common rumour our next droid update will be in Jan... maybe the 22nd?
But who knows what that update will be?
Anybody trip over any credible sources yet?
Here are a few sources I found.....
The hero has already been found running Android 2.1 in the wild.

It even sounds like you could update now... but not recommended since its still buggy and destroys file permissions etc....

In the next article down from the above link, you can see the new google phone running android 2.1 on T-mobile
The Android 2.1 build that came from the Nexus One dump has already been ported over to the Motorola Droid. Well, sort of. Apparently the ROM just destroys file permissions and doesnít exactly give you a stable phone, but the first jump has been made, now itís just a matter of time before the kinks are worked out. Though, if you are feeling a bit risky today or donít really like your Droid and want to harm it, you cna still download the original file that can be used to flash your Droid to Android 2.1. I wouldnít harm your Droid if I were you. Once they take over the world, you want them on your side.
It looks like its now available for the Hero GSM
Engadget has gotten itself some exclusive shots of the Nexus One Google Phone. These are some great shots of the phone itself, with a few shots of the interface and the hardware. This is running Android 2.1. I guess there was even an OTA update run last night on this thing. In the photos, itís clear to see itís running T-Mobile, at least this one it.
