    My feeling was that in the 12/11 update, the updates started on the previous Monday. The belief was that with a million Droids it was easier for them to send out the updates in groups of 200K. If that were so, we should've been seeing posts that they got the update starting on the 18th.

    I would love to see 2.1

    But, I think we will be waiting a while longer for it. If I remember correctly, there was another thread where it was mentioned that 2.1 went to open source not too long ago, if that's the case, then the release has to be tested and what not before they release it.

    I don't think I am off base in figuring it is going to be at least a month, possibly longer, before 2.1 is released to us. I am still at build ESD56, and I know there is some ESD59's and 61's out there, but I am not sure if that means anything. If they have to get everyone to the same build number, perhaps they will release a 2.0.2 prior to 2.1. I will wait until there is some announcement.

    Seriously...check out the dates on this.
    It's amazing what the imagination can do. 2.1 was never gonna happen 1-22.

    I am happy to wait for a STABLE OS than the stuff we use to live with on the BB Storm/RIM OS's in the past. Let them iron out what is wrong, then they can dish it out to all of us. We don't need Motorola/Android pushing out an OS just to make people happy that they are getting a new one. I just want to see a GOOD one, and if it means waiting. It is what it is then. The last thing I want, is to get a buggy OS.

    I wonder if Google has and say when Droid gets 2.1? I saw the pitiful sales numbers for the first week of the N1 and maybe having Droid on 2.1 would hurt sales even more. Thoughts?

    unfortunately we all know how target dates work out, which is all that doc really said. at least we can take comfort in knowing that an update is planned, but news as to when is still rumor.

    Doubt it if they are planning on releasing the new android phones with 2.1 and updating the eris/hero to 2.1. Besides it is out of google's hands its in the hands of verizon and motorola.

    if you read their twitter page, they @replied some people saying they wont comment on the timing of a release, but that they would provide details closer to the time of release. as much as it pains me, i dont think today is the day my friends.

    Eris/Hero is another matter altogether. HTC has to first update the Sense UI in order for the phones to work with 2.1. As the Droid doesn't have a UI on top of Android, the Droids should get updated well before the HTCs.

    I would have thought that they would have told us that "an update is not planned for this weekend" if they really wanted to eliminate the rumors.

    Instead, they chose to tell us that they would tell us closer to the time of release. Which could mean that they will release information about the update at 6:00pm tonight and begin pushing out updates at 7:00pm.

    Their wording makes it sound like something is happening behind the scenes.
