Bad News: Android 2.1 update for the Motorola Droid has been delayed

Bad news, everyone!

Remember that Droid update that was supposed to hit today? The one that was supposed to bring Android 2.1 and all of its wonderful features? Yeah, erm, about that..

It’s been delayed.

Seemingly out of the blue, messages on the Verizon employee intranet changed from “Hurray! The update is coming on 3/18” to big, red fonted messages of “OH GOD NEVERMIND WE’LL UPDATE YOU AS SOON AS POSSIBLE”.

So what happened? Last minute bugs? Distribution errors? Is Verizon toying with our emotions? We may never know for sure. The one thing we do know, straight from the horses mouth: “The 3/18 software update will not happen as planned. ”
