Motorola CLIQ and CLIQ XT 2.1 Android OS Upgrades scheduled for August

T-Mobile customers with the CLIQ and CLIQ XT were expecting an upgrade to Android 2.1 last month, but Motorola missed their self-imposed deadline and decided to take more time to "optimize the experience".

Motorola now list the current status of the upgrade to Android 2.1 as "testing in process", but no timeline has been provided for its release. However, thanks to the leaked T-Mobile roadmap it looks like the highly anticipated upgrade should arrive in August.

We might never know the real reason for the delay, but it appears the release was adjusted so that the new T-Mobile Motorola Charm (launching July 21st) could be the first device in the U.S. to feature the enhanced version of Motoblur built on Android 2.1.

Since the Charm is launching this month with Android 2.1, hopefully Motorola can meet the August timeline for the CLIQ upgrades. Keep an eye on the official T-Mobile forums because Motorola normally performs a public beta test of their software updates before releasing them to the masses. For an idea of what to expect, check out the Motoblur enhancements that are coming with Android 2.1.

"For those asking for an update regarding a software upgrade on CLIQ in the U.S., we've made a decision to take more time on the release to optimize the experience in some key areas. We will continue to work to deliver it as soon as possible and apologize that we have been unable to provide an upgrade to these users in Q2 as planned.

We are working hard to provide an upgrade to Android 2.1 as soon as we can. Our consumers' experience is our first priority and we will provide an upgrade when we can deliver the best possible user experience."
