    don't worry, in the Bailout legislation, there was a clause for "No cell phone left behind" :icon_ devil:

    To me this explains the delay.

    We should get exactly what the Nexus has including multi-touch. 2.1 is 2.1 everywhere.

    I''m also agreeing this is probably why 2.1 has been delayed along with the possible Pinch and Zoom bug that was on the developers forums for a brief time. This is honestly great news, we should be seeing 2.1 fairly soon at this point.

    This bites , we got snookered into bring back Motorola from the dead , and now they shun us like stepchildren . :mad:
    I know the N1 is the new kid on the block , but to forsake the Droid , the largest single device to promote Android is shameful . :motdroidhoriz:

    I would expect to see 2.1 by the end of Feb... but could be proven wrong.
    It seems plausible that the 2.1 update rumored for Jan 22nd was pushed back so that 2.1 itself could be updated (what the Nexus OTA just got) and then Motorola can roll it out to Droids.
    The Nexus, with 2.1, had a lot of issues.... my guess is Motorola didn't want to run into creating any of these issues with their already stable device... bottom line is we can draw all the parallels we want.... we still have to wait :)

    Well a very possible reason for the delay is the Nexus One shipped with a RC of Android 2.1 and this is the Gold release. That would explain why there hasnt been an "official" 2.1 source release announcement.

    Just tossing that out there as an Idea. The reason I think this is possible is simply, if the N1 came out with the final 2.1 release, then you'd think an OTA update like this would be "Android 2.1.1" or something.

    Well hopefully we'll see it soon on the Droid.

    They should just push it to us right now and "break" all our devices with bugs, hiccups and poor connectivity issues : )

    Then when everyone gets upset they tell everyone "Well you guys wanted it before we had the time to thoroughly test it and work out the bugs so we pushed it out early. We ask that users remain patient while we work out all the bugs. Everyone is now currently up to date. Thank you for understanding."

    It's obvious to me that the Nexus being the newest phone with the newest operating system will get fixed first. The Droid did... if you might want to remember back to the last update we got. It's nothing different it's just that we will be second.

    I would expect it fairly soon after the Nexus gets it - my guess is next week.

    I, for one, am perfectly ok with letting Nexus users deal with all of the bugs that may or may not occur with the update and therefore will patiently await my turn. :)
