    Hey all,

    Just curious as if anyone knows what is supposed to be included in the 2.1 OS update?

    Soo... are we sure that 2.1 will come to Droid anytime in the near future (next 6 months?) because the other Droid devices are still without 2.0.1... seems like it'll be another year before Moto Droid gets 2.1...

    2.0 was made specifically for the Droid, that's why no other device has 2.0.1. They are going straight to 2.1 or above for future devices.

    You can put 2.1 on your Droid right now with the one that was pulled from the Nexus One phone. Since the Droid is Verizon's flagship device right now, I seriously doubt it will take very long to have an official 2.1 update.

    From what I've seen from leaked videos, there are quite a few UI enhancements (Live Wallpapers, Music, Launcher, etc...) And most likely some bug fixes. Not sure though as all of this is based on 2.1 running on the Nexus.

    The rumor is that the next update (which is suppose to come on the 22th) will be 2.1. So hopefully (crossing my fingers) we'll all be getting it in the next 3 weeks.

    Difference being is that the Droid is a Google experience phone so it will get all the latest updates. Google worked with Moto and VZW on the Droid so they will surely support the OS.

    It will remain relavent for a while.

    Looking forward to this update for sure! Is 2.0.1 the latest as of right now? I saw a post online that 2.0.2 is out but I dont know if the source was reputable at all.

    The January 22nd update will either be 2.0.2 or 2.1, more leaning towards 2.1 to compete with the Nexus One that's getting released in a couple days.

    My Droid is running great. I'm in no hurry or need for an update.

    No hurry here either, but I'd be lying to say I don't want some new stuff :)
