Motorola's Android 2.1 update for CLIQ XT delayed again, requires 'additional testing'

Chris Ziegler

Motorola had originally promised that its CLIQ XT for T-Mobile would see an upgrade to Android 2.1 -- which is now two major versions old, by the way -- some six months ago. That fell through, of course... and now it's falling through one more time. Motorola's latest update timetable for its Android products has the CLIQ XT marked as "additional testing in process; more details when available" -- in other words, it's not here, and Moto's not ready to tell you when it will be here. The company seems to have gotten a little better about updates with its more recent products like the Droid X and Droid 2, but that's little consolation for those folks that jumped on Motorola's Google bandwagon early. Oh, and the biggest kick in the pants? The version of the CLIQ XT released through Walmart's Straight Talk brand won't be getting an update at all, despite the fact that the phone is all but identical to T-Mobile's (heck, Straight Talk uses wholesale T-Mobile minutes in the first place). Not cool, guys.
