    Definitely... it's VZW's flagship... it'll get the updates. :) It's great as it is now.

    If you get a chance to play around with one DO IT!... or you can always get it and return it in your 30 day window if you truly don't like it!

    I think what you might have been referring to was the shot of the HTC that was leaked running the 2.1 update. This was on a phone that is not out yet, and the other droid units should have it earlier or the same time as that phone gets released. (If that's what your talking about)

    This is the beauty of owning a Google branded phone. Whenever an update is released we will get it first. No need for Moto to adapt it.

    Google is very happy with VZW and Moto you can be assured of that : )

    We haven't seen nothing yet.
