    Anyone following @MotoDroid on Twitter may have just received this tweet:

    "Sun, rain or snow today? What is the latest from Haiti? You will have the answer to these questions and more after today : )"

    Could this be a possible hint at an update coming?

    Either he/she is traveling to Haiti and will be in a position to report the weather...or they are suggesting you'll be able to check the weather on your phone via the Google weather widget. :icon_ banana:

    Yes. I've been running 2.1 for a little while now and it's a great app. If this releases today, I'll revert to stock and do the update for sure!

    What ever happened to the OTA update we needed to actually update to 2.1? Was that just for certain people?

    Great question. I've been in doubt that they were needed at all but we will see. Whatever, I still don't expect it by 1/22 anymore.:mad:

    Well, I'm not really mad 2.01.1 works great for me anyway.

    Doubtful, seems to be a front for Android Anarchy ?? The full "News and Weather Hint" article is there.

    The only official Motorola Twitter account (for phones) I know of is @MotoMobile Motorola (MotoMobile) on Twitter

    I can't believe everyone is so freaked out about the update, just wait a few days and it will come when it comes.

    It looks like they are just promoting an article about news and weather apps that is coming to their blog. Nothing more.

    Yep. False alarm. They just tweeted about a review of the Weather Channel app.


    Move along, these are not the Droid updates you're looking for. . . :)

    Oh c'mon people.... why is it that when a beetle farts facing upwind these days it turns into a onslaught of new threads predicting the 2.1 release? Ugh. Let it go already.
