Moto Cliq gets an OTA update, still running Android v1.5

Upset that your Motorola Cliq is still running Android v1.5? Think the battery life stinks? Motorola’s got a patch for one of those problems, but not the other.

Early this morning, Moto began pushing an over-the-air update to Cliq owners. Alas, it doesn’t look like they’ve managed to port the BLUR user interface over to Android 2.0 yet – even after updating, the Cliq is still running v1.5. On the upside, they did manage to fix a good number of nasty nitpicks. Touch screen accuracy, battery life, and Bluetooth support have all been boosted, and they’ve added in TTY functionality for the deaf and hard of hearing.

Check out the full change list after the jump.
