Motorola updates Android 2.1 rollout schedule, CLIQ & CLIQ XT still listed for Q2

Motorola has just released their new Android update chart.  Not much has changed since last time we got a peak at it.  You’ll notice that Motorola Milestone is currently getting its Android 2.1 update in Europe, Latin America, Canada, and Asia.  Quite a few handsets in various markets are still listed as “update under evaluation” while T-Mobile USA’s CLIQ and CLIQ TX still have Q2 circled on the calendar.

If you haven’t checked your calendar lately, we have less than two weeks before Q2 draws to a close.  We haven’t heard any rumblings from Motorola or T-Mobile on the Android 2.1 update for the CLIQ and CLIQ XT, but since Motorola didn’t change the date on the planned release schedule for the two phones, we’ll continue to assume that the Éclair update should be knocking at the door any day now.

    I am so glad that they haven’t changed the date… but it still does say in the disclaimer at the bottom that they are free to do whatever they want.

    Also, I wouldn’t really mind if they had bumped the 2.1 to a 2.2! :-)

    They are not releasing it now so that they can highlight NinjaBlur as a selling feature on the new Motorola X. My guess is that it will be released around the same time Motorola X comes out which is June 23.

    Im hope the rumors a few weeks ago were false, but I may just use the rom eclair2cliq instead because motoblur sucks!!!

  • http://flatrabbit.com/ Jacob

    With the Flipout running a version of MotoBlur 2.1 we can only hope these updates should be rolling out soon.

    I can’t wait, I need this update. 1.5 FAILS!

  • http://Website Darkseider

    How the hell can the Cliq and Cliq XT get it in Q2 and the Backflip Q3 and Devour under eval? FFS the Clig XT and the Backflip are the same damned guts! The Devour is the same, minus screen size and resolution, as the LG Ally which ships with Android 2.1! Motorola REALLY needs to step up its’ game with these updates. Either that or just let the owners root freely so we can at least have what we want if we choose.

    Dear Motorola and T-mobile

  • http://Website ANdroid Kid

    they need to hurry the hell up i need to have all the 2.1 goodness

  • http://Website AndroidLuv3R

    I AM A FURIOUS CUSTOMER RIGHT NOW THAT HAS ABOUT HAD ENOUGH OF THE CONTINUOUS LIES. IF I CAN REMEMBER CLEARLY, THIS 2.1 WAS SUPPOSE TO BE PUSHED OUT IN MARCH, BUT THAT WAS A LIE. I DON’T THINK IT IS FAIR THAT WHEN BOTH THE CLIQ AND CLIQ XT CAME OUT IT WAS SUCH A BIG HYPE AND NOW ITS NOT EVEN TALKED ABOUT. AS A ANDROID PHONE SUPPORTER I REALLY SHOULD NOT FEEL LIKE WHY HAS MY PHONE BEEN PUSHED UNDER THE CARPET FOR A NEWER GENERATION PHONE WITH A BETTER OS SYSTEM FUNCTIONS. FROM WHAT I HAVE HEARD, MOTOROLA WOULD SAY SOMETHING AND NOT ABIDE BY IT. BUT I GUARANTEE THAT IF THIS 2.1 UPDATE WAS ALL TALK AND NO ACTION, MOTOROLA WOULD LOOSE A LOT OF CUSTOMERS AND ANDROID BUYERS. STEP UP YOUR GAME AND GIVE US WHAT YOU PROMISED. Q2 IS COMING TO AN END AND NOTHING IS BEING SAID ABOUT THE CLIQ. THE MOTOROLA CLIQ IS MOTOROLAS VERY FIRST ANDROID PHONE……….. WE CLIQ OWNERS ARE TIRED OF HOPING AND WAITING. SINCE IT’S TAKING SO LONG TO PUSH IT OUT, IT BETTER NOT COME OUT AS A “SLOW BUGGY UPDATE.”

    • http://Website RayMatthew

      Woah, just chill. Its just a phone and an update. You won’t die without it, if you hadn’t had it before.

      • http://Website Geo

        It’s not just a phone it’s money invested in a hardware product created by a company who hasn’t had the best Quarters in the past Years. It’s money being put into T-mobile to provide us with services, and whats great service..without a fully updated to the times phone. if they’re going to announce it..Might as well release it soon, Or piss off your Customers and have them never buy your products again.I’m going to have to agree to his anger, Just…Take it in a different perspective.

        E.G. – My Cliq screen is Cracked in 13 different places..How it happened? i sat down, the phone was in my pocket i heard a pop and i took it out and bam..Cracks

        Same thing that happened when i had a RAZR.

        Motorola and TONKA need to Get together on their plastics.

          You have a good point about money spent and justified frustration.

          But I haven’t kept my phone in my pants pocket since I stopped getting flip phones. Doesn’t matter what they’re made of, it’s uncomfortable and seems like a stupid idea. Put it in your coat with a stiff protector sleeve, hang it off your belt, or stick it in a purse or backpack.

          Putting any smart phone in your pants pocket is just asking for damage.

        Obviously you don’t understand the concept of technology and spending hard earned money on a phone that should be up to date. Unless you’re one of those bloggers that try to stir up controversy for no reason but for arguments sake.

  • http://Website rev2redlineguy

    Well, I’m not counting my chickens before they hatch just yet. I guess the only reason I’m dissapointed (I won’t say upset because there is more to life than a smartphone) is because most of these new and cool apps are all requiring 2.X plus and with our slow & buggy 1.5 we are missing out on alot (especially Google Maps w/navigation). At least I have my trusty myTouch as a back-up that I switch out alot between my Cliq. Either way if there’s no update by July, I guess I’ll be switching to whatever newer device they have coming out (hopefully the Galaxy S or even Nexus One) & sell my Cliq on ebay and cut my losses. So much potential for this phone yet no support at all from Motorola yet. Shame shame on them.

    When will you have updates. For the Droid a885

  • http://Website Brad Brains

    I no lnonger believe anything I hear about the Cliq until it happens. I’m actualy thinking about getting rid of mine for something else. So much promised, so little happening.

  • http://Website Jbcliq

    I post this from my rooted iPhone on my tmo account while my cliq awaits the updated :(

    but what I really want is moto to release stuff so we can root and build better custom roms

    I may just have to spring for that n1

  • http://Website dave

    In store when I was thinking about buying the cliq xt I was promised 1.6 by march….and when I saw nothing I went back to the store and they promised 2.1 by q2′s end if I see nothing from moto or tmo by mid july I’m gonna start getting straight android os phones

  • http://Website Ms. Matrix

    I don’t know,, I’m getting fed up myself. What I never understand is other phones that came out after the cliq xt had an higher android os. I didn’t get it…but I still like the phone.

    I’m wondering what the hell is taking so long to get the update out, they say it was coming out sometime in June and it’s almost over. I’m hoping that we get to see something new soon.

    I keep playing with the new mytouch slide and even though I don’t really care for the keyboard, I do like the new interface and the friendstream. I wished we could have that instead of the motoblur.

    Plus in the new age of the iphone 4g, I want something new to play with myself. I’m a bit jealous lol

    Does Motorola realize the the second quarter end ‘s in 4 day’s….

  • http://Website Jordan

    2 Days left motorola……….and counting

  • http://Website Cubanito

    Motorola is taking to long if by half of July i don’t get the 2.1 update I’m switching for the MyTouch Slide I’m tired of this Motorola:(

    • http://Website Branovices

      This isn’t Motorola’s website, you know. They don’t read your comments here. I don’t understand why people keep addressing Motorola in the comments of a website they don’t even control.

  • http://Website Mohamed

    i feel really bad for cliq owners becasue they’re phones were pre-installed with 1.5 aka oldest verison and first version of android!!! and it was made in nov 2009 that’s like a g1 having 1.5 and the g1 even updated to 1.6 lol. and you guys waited 9 frickin months for an update and nothing happened!?!? you could ahve gotten 2 whole updates by now!!! 2 updates. wow nexus one does really shine!!!!!!!

  • http://Website samir

    would dis hurry i need 2.1

  • http://Website eddie_the_cyc

    it seems by the time the 2.1 update is released for the Motorola Quench/ Cliq XT it will already be as outdated as the current 1.5 OS is. shame on you MOTO for being so tremendously slow on this.

  • http://Website dator

    at least its still slated for an update every behold 2 which is by samsung got shafted all it got was 1.6 update and false promises for 2.x update it will never happen now im thinking of switchen to cliq xt if the update is still gonna happen

  • http://Website brian

    Why doesnt anyone know. Seems like a simple ?.

  • http://Website Mandell

    I agree ith AndroidLuv3R this is ridiculous ive been waiting for 2.1 FOREVER!! I was actually orginally told that my xt came with 2.1! Once i saw that it was shitty 1.5 i was like FAIL!! If it doesnt come out soon i give up and am getting the Samsung Captivate with AT&T

    P.S. I been planning on going to AT&T for a while. So im not switching just cuz the update. I hate tmobile

  • http://Website sean

    According to tmobile, the update is scheduled for mid oct, Idk about u but that’s 3 days away. They did however release an update earlier this month, which did improve the speed of the operating system. So hopefully that was to prepare the fun for 2.1 let’s keep our fingers crossed here ladies and gentleman
