Yes the infamous Motorola Android OS roadmap has been given a new facelift and for some this is not going to be good news. Looks like a lot of Moto’s lower offerings will be locked into as low of an OS as 1.5!! While others have had their 2.2 updates pushed back others are still being tested. One of the biggest observations include no mention of Gingerbread for the X (yet). No mention of Gingerbread anywhere on the new road map is not always bad news as we all know this could change at a moments notice but is still nice Motorola is keeping the users in the know. Anyone see their phone model on the new road map? a little upset your device may not see 2.2? Drop us a comment below and let us know.
Motorola has updated its Android software upgrade news page, and it’s not pretty. Besides no mention of Gingerbread for the Droid X (say yes Moto, you have to), there’s a slew of lower-end handsets that look to be stuck on Android 1.6 (or even 1.5 in the case of the Wal-Mart StraightTalk Cliq XT), and the T-Mobile branded Cliq XT has had it’s upgrade date pushed back for additional testing.
It’s worth noting that Moto’s newer Android offerings aren’t even listed on this page, so we don’t really expect any Gingerbread news at this point. It is pretty disheartening to see phones with capable hardware being held back though, and we don’t like any more than you do.
