Motorola Backflip gets a software update, still flips the wrong way

Chris Ziegler

If you were hoping sort of magical patch that made the Backflip flip normally, replaced Yahoo search with Google, and erased any trace of AT&T crapware, well... you can just keep on hoping, but all things considered, Motorola's just-released update for the phone seems like a must-have. Most importantly, better battery life and system stability are promised along with improved network and Bluetooth performance and a host of other tweaks -- and interestingly, they also make mention of better performance from downloaded apps, though this doesn't have anything to do with the current sideloading restriction as far as we can tell. It's also not Android 2.1 just yet, but with any luck, that's still in the pipeline.
