    I just went to the verizon store to hopefully get a new battery because of the poor battery life I have been having on my droid. the rep there told me to hold on to the phone for a couple more days because an update would be coming "tomorrow or the next day" to help battery life. I am assuming he was talking about 2.1. take it for what its worth.

    I have it from a good source that 2.1 will be here May 26, plus or minus 3 months.

    I for one am glad you did post it. Nice to hear that someone at Verizon thinks an update is coming. Accurate or not.

    (I also thought the response was pretty funny, and not nearly mean enough to get you to inhibit posting rumors).

    Well Verizon reps were warned Wednesday will be a very busy for them. But most assume its because of whatever Apple will be announcing.

    Thanks for sharing. Whether it's true or not it's still interesting to read what people are hearing.

    sounds like the rep just told you that so he/she would not have to deal with your battery problem/complaint.

    Wow last week any rumor would be believed and this week people think we'll never get the update.

    This is like a drug to some of you huh.

    I bet it comes out tomorrow like he says.

    If it's one thing I've learned, it is NOT to believe VZW reps. Mose people here know more than they do.

    sometimes they are accurate, sometimes they are not... that's why he stated, take it for what it's worth. It may not come out tomorrow or the day after, he's merely relaying information he heard.

    11:04 am ON Jan 5 2010 nexus release conference
    Jason Chen:
    Q: Why was it necessary for Google to design the phone? Why couldn't it just be an HTC phone running the new flavor of Android? And will these new features becoming to Droid?
    A: It's inaccurate to say Google designed the phone (points to HTC CEO). [Google] is just merchandising it online. Everybody will get 2.1 when it's open source, within a couple of days. ( DID YOU NOTICE THIS SAYS A COUPLE DAYS AND THIS CONFERENCE WAS JANUARY 5th. AND THIS WAS STATED DIRECTLY FROM GOOGLE). YOU CAN READ IT HERE>>>> Google Nexus One Liveblog Archive - archive - Gizmodo

    I want it to come out tomorrow and I think that its a good idea for them to release it, but i am wondering if they will even with all the apple stuff going on.

    You are taking that out of context. He is simply stating the code would be released within a couple days of the Nexus one release, which launched 2.1. It does not say phones will get the update within a few days. That takes much longer.

    It'll be busy for Verizon on Wednesday because either of the iPhone going to Verizon and/or Apple's stupid Tablet.
