    Each phone is different...therefore have different versions. Look at this this way. You may have Windows 7 Professional on your pc and I have Windows 7 Ultimate.....same Microsoft product...but different in it's own way. Being a PC guy this is the only way I could think about putting it to you. Beer is not helping my cause either...LOL

    That's an odd assumption. If all versions were the same then there wouldn't be different versions. As stated above, each device is on its own specific release. Personally, I don't see the point in fretting over 2.3.340 versus 2.3.20 and 2.2.1 versus 2.2. As the numbers imply, the differences are very small.

    Now, 2.2 versus 3.x (and similar comparisons) is a different story.

    The system versions refer to model specific things, like motoBlur and such. The OS, 2.2 and 2.2.1 are the Android versions. Apparently the D2 didn't get updated to 2.2.1 is all.
