    Hey guys,​

    Some general news for you all. As seen on several tech-news sites, Motorola claims that they jumped the gun and announced 2.1 Update too early for the DROID. It doesn't say the update is pushed back and with no official word available all we can say is WOW ​

    [​IMG]

    This was a big mistake made by the guy who posted it! Hopefully they get to the release and soon!​

    Yeah this is just further dissappointment...finally thought it was real then they take it back...

    How much more will they lead us on?? That is the true question lol

    It's all good though.....I actually just decided to try out Greek35T's new 2.1 build and it seems to be working a lot better than previous 2.1 ROMs

    Yeah, seriously none of the blog sites actually read the posts... They just read Matt's first post and thought it referred to the update. Don't be vague or the blog site will go apesh*t.

    Please don't expect the update this week guys. Looks like @Matt is gonna take some heat for this one. Even though he clearly just posted his release not a little early

    Well,

    whatever reason Moto has to stop this Update so far, it must be a good reason. they are not dumb.
    As well the HTC hero gets the 2.1 update, as announced yesterday.

    So the onlything to do is wait, and be FRIENDLY AND RESPECTIVE!

    Having worked for and with several multibillion dollar international corporations over the years, I'm not the least bit surprised by fubars like this. And the complexity of the Tripartite Pact among Google, Motorola, and Verizon no doubt increases their likelihood. In fact, though, premature publication of a press release is a relatively trivial example these days.

    One needn't look very far to see a highly successful firm selling a new smartphone without first setting up a telephone support organization or a highly successful auto manufacturer forced to recall millions of vehicles because of faulty accelerators and brakes. Not to mention the smartest guys in the room nearly wrecking the entire world's financial system less than two years ago.

    In the larger scheme of things, a rogue PR release is hardly a major example of corporate incompetence.

    Actually, I don't think there's any evidence that Motorola "stopped" the update. And just because individuals in large organization aren't "dumb" doesn't mean the organization isn't stupid. I've worked with many very intelligent folks in very, very "dumb" organizations.

    I believe jsh1120 just mentioned a key point. You have Motorola, Verizon, and Google all with a stake in this phone so sure there is going to be delays. The Droid is a great phone with unlimited potential but we all need to be patient.
