    From AndroidCentral:

    Motorola Droid & Cliq Getting Android 2.1, Droid to Get Flash 10

    Posted on Wednesday, Jan 6, 2010 by Casey Chan

    [​IMG]
    Don't worry Droid & Cliq owners, you're not going to be left in the dark. Motorola also announced that they'll be bringing both the Motorola Droid & Motorola Cliq to Android 2.1. Which means we should be able to enjoy all the goodies that made the Nexus One so jaw-droppingly sexy on our Motorola Android phones. We're definitely interested in seeing Motoblur and Android 2.1 interact, but that's a discussion for another day.
    But the news doesn't stop there for Droid owners. Not only will they receive Android 2.1 but Motorola has been working on Flash 10.1 integration and has optimized it for the Droid chipset, which means yes, your Droid will soon have official Flash support. On top of that, the Droid should get a second maintenance update in the near future. Score big for Droid.
    Since yesterday wasn't such a good day to be a Droid owner, today is shaping up totally different! What do you guys think?

    Awesome news! I can't wait to see the popup on my phone asking me if I want to upgrade :)

    They should just make the yes button read "Hell ya!"

    Definitely good news. No need to get all wrapped up in the Droid doom and gloom from yesterday.

    ya you should be banned from all forums for life and your droid should be taken away from you forever. Enter Sarcasm. Seriously though how sweet is this news. Yesterday I was so worried that droid would be ditched by verizon for the latest and newest phone and now this comes out. Its going to be a good year for the droid, no matter what comes out in the next year.

    Well,

    as far as i know the update procedure, google publishes the os/update,
    carrier are adapting.
    So that can mean, that you wont have your update at 22nd....

    but maybe im just wrong :D

    Was anyone truly afraid that the Droid wouldn't get the 2.1 upgrade? Was all the doom and gloom present because everyone thought Google would just forget about the Droid now that the Nexus One is being sold? That mindset seemed weird to me. You better believe that Motorola and Verizon want the Droid to receive every single update that its hardware can handle.

    I know Google wants to sell their phone, but I would imagine that they also want to support the growth of their OS no matter what particular phone it is on.

    I think the reason some Droid owners were feeling pessimistic was because of how the Motorola rep reacted when he was asked about 2.1 on the Droid at yesterday's Google event. It is nice to hear that 2.1 is a sure thing for the Droid now.
