Motorola over the weekend detailed its plans for upgrading its many Android devices to newer versions of Google’s mobile OS.
“We are working very closely with Google and our carrier partners to bring you the most optimized experience on each of our smartphones powered by Android; this means appropriately releasing both operating system upgrades and software maintenance updates which enhance device functionality,” Motorola said in a post on the company’s website.
According to the post, the Motorola Backflip, Cliq and Cliq XT will all be upgraded to Android 2.1 (Eclaire) in the third or fourth quarters. The Devour will not have a software upgrade to Android 2.1.
Additionally, Motorola’s higher-end devices, the Droid and Droid X, will be upgraded to the coveted Android 2.2 (Froyo). The Droid is currently rolling out in phases, while the Droid X will receive Froyo in “late summer.”
Motorola also took time in the posting to flesh out upgrade plans for its devices in Canada, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Mexico.
