Motorola announces future Android 2.1 and 2.2 Froyo updates

Wondering when exactly your Motorola Android smartphone will receive software updates?

If the answer’s yes, chances are that you’ll find what you need in this update schedule that Motorola has just released.

Let’s start off with Android updates for Moto’s smartphones available in the US. Here’s the list of devices, and the expected updates:

  • Motorola Droid X – Android 2.2 Froyo update to start in “late summer” (as previously rumored)
  • Motorola Droid – Android 2.2 update “currently rolling out in phases”
  • Motorola Cliq and Cliq XT – Android 2.1 updates “planned for late Q3/early Q4” (no Froyo, huh?)
  • Motorola Backflip – Android 2.1 should be available in Q3
  • Motorola Devour – no plans for an Android 2.1 update, sadly
