In a world filled with news about smartphones being updated to Android 2.2, it’s easy to forget just how many Android devices aren’t even on 2.1. Such is the case of one Motorola Cliq, which for months and months seemed all but forgotten by Motorola in Android 1.x territory.
Well, there’s good news today for Cliq owners. A leaked screenshot from an internal T-Mobile training system shows that an update to Android 2.1 for the Cliq is on its way. Sadly, there’s no exact release date to speak of yet, but the training of T-Mobile employees for the update is set to begin on November 7. And it appears that training usually starts about a week before any scheduled release, which may mean that the software will be rockin’ your Cliqs sometime in mid-November.
However, this update will not be over-the-air, as we’ve gotten used to recently, but rather a computer-assisted affair that will take about an hour and also require you have 30 MB of space on the Cliq’s internal memory and 100 MB free on the SD card. Surely a small price to pay for such an anticipated update.
This update will only go out to original Cliqs, owners of the Cliq XT will have to wait a little bit more.
