Remember that CLIQ update that Motorola accidentally released last month? A recent tweet from Motorola claims it will be out “this week” and our sources informed us T-Mobile will begin pushing it out February 18th.
Please note this is not the Android 2.1 CLIQ update that Motorola said was coming in Q2 2010. Instead, the firmware will remain on Android 1.5, include enhancements for battery life and GPS, and attempt to fix the touchscreen issues.
My best guess if CLIQ owners have about a 50% chance of seeing an update hit their phones this week. Motorola has a history of jumping the gun with announcing updates and it could take T-Mobile a few extra days to certify it.
Are you confused? The handset makers and carriers are doing a terrific job of placing all the software upgrade information in one easy to find central location instead of unexpectedly posting it to Facebook, tweeting it on random accounts, and accidentally publishing it on support sites.
Oh they are doing that? Well damn.
