    the update isn't even the issue its the fact that they talk about a new update coming soon and when soon comes "they “are no where to be found and we are stuck with some guy on a forum talking bs...but apparently paying for somethingand expecting services and info makes us spoiled brats......

    Technically they never gave an exact date so "soon" can be whenever you interpret it to be.

    They never promised a date. They never promised exactly what we would get in 2.1 they just promised an upgrade.

    Any logical thinking person who is following this knows the Nexus has had problems AND then Google decided to throw Multitouch in. This explains the delay in it's totality. They aren't messing with us it's just taking longer than anticipated and we are getting the bonus of multitouch.

    Grow up. Seriously.

    Aren't at least some of you that are posting replies to this thread former Blackberry users? Come on, you have to know to understand patience if you were. Promises of software releases every frigging week and those dates would come and go all the time. Then "leaks" would come out and everyone would jump on those, all the while complaining that it messed up something else. Then, the hybrids came out over on CB, some of those were good, all the while waiting for a new release. In the year the original Storm came out, I believe there were two official releases, one the first month and then 5.0.233 in September. Not that Google will wait that many months between official releases, but be patient. I don't want them releasing an official 2.1 when it's chock full of bugs. In the meantime you can get the sholes 2.1, or root your own phone until they're ready to release it. Be patient and sing "kumbaya" in unison now.

    those that are calling this a political statement aren't doing a very good job of reading between the lines. the replies are evident that moto is not happy with 2.1 in its current condition and cannot promise a significant enough change that will minimize issues upon rollout.

    i applaud moto for trying to hash through the issues before releasing it. it's rare to see developers bring a level of QA to a product like moto is perceiving to be doing.

    the original timeline was based off of target dates. in an IT world, a target date can easily be changed if goals are not met in time. in most situations, if those goals fall past the original target date, good project managers will take a step back and make sure that all of the project's bases were covered before defining a new one.

    my guess is they've redefined a new target date, but we all know that if that date chagnes, moto will look worse. if they keep coming out with dates, and never deliver, moto will become a laughing stock.

    moto has been applauded for their DROID and has been recognized as a once struggling company as one that is relevant again. do all of you really think they want to screw that up now?

    i can also guarantee you that moto is not losing money off of their failed target date. the DROID is a huge success for moto, their first in a long while. and even at 2.0, it was still a solid phone. 2.0.1 helped to correct alot of common complaints among users and moto wants 2.1 to be the right step.

    and let me throw this out there for you guys that are thinking, "well i can have 2.1 now, and it works, why can't moto get it to work???" remember, all of the 2.1 integration that is available to us is recompiled, merged code from other devices, versions, etc., just to "wedge" something in so that we can enjoy alternatives. there are still a ton of issues between all of the versions that aren't being directly addressed by these ROM developers, that moto would be privy to.

    at this point, i wouldn't be surprised if we got right to 2.1.1. or they call it 2.2, or the DROID/Milestone's 2.1 will be different from N1's 2.1, etc., etc.

    Personally
    I can wait. Currently the Droid is great. With the members here dropping the 2.1 apps to have until we get it, works just fine for me.
    I rather all the bugs are worked out then get it. If the firmware ends up being a better version then we are getting, so be it.
    All good here.

    It's a phone. Get over it and enjoy what you have. So what if the N1 has 2.1? Are you just going to keep crying until mommy Motorola pays attention to you? Seriously we were never given a release date so Motorola has not fallen back on anything. We will be getting it soon and we all know that. Isin't that good enough?

    That was my question... I think DigiK is talking from his a$$. As 640K says above Moto is NOT happy with what they received form Google and should be applauded for not pushing out a release that not ready just it may upset a few users that lack common sense....

    'Newer' is not always better.... ESPECIALLY when it comes to software. If you are that impatient than flash one of the cooked 2.1 ROMs.

    2.0.1 is a good OS with it's only real drawback being it's limit to just 3 homescreens. I wasted last month anticipating the 2.1 update and when it didn't come I decided to root and rom and now really don't even want the next ota update. 2.1 seems to be all bells and whistles anyway.

    So yeah all these 2.1 update threads are filled with redundant drivel yet here we are reading it and commenting on it.

    Don't anticipate so much because it will come when it comes.

    If you CAN'T wait, just root, with a little research you can be running a rom that's BETTER than 2.1 by this evening. I recommend Pete's Bugless Beast.

    Other than that just be happy, no bugs beats uber features any day.
