(Updated: Only Available To Beta Users) Motorola Cliq Update Available Now

Update: Apparently this was a “soak” update, meaning beta and Motorola has yanked the page. Someone apparently got a little vengeance on Moto by leaking page to the masses, not quite what Moto had in mind for the beta testers we’re sure! Motorola CLIQ owners rejoice! Just yesterday, Motorola was looking for beta testers for the Eclair update, and now Motorola has officially released the highly anticipated Android 2.1 (Eclair) update. The update is now … [read full article]

Motorola Cliq Update Coming “Soon”

Lets just get the answer to the obvious first question out of the way here, we DO NOT know exactly what day will mark the beginning of the Motorola Cliq update to Android 2.1 However, as the above image shows T-Mobile employees are set to begin training early next month, November 7th to be exact. The good news from what our source is telling us, is that employers are usually trained a week ahead … [read full article]

Oh Hai Motorola, Wherefore Art My Updates?

I think the question I get asked the most lately is when is “insert Android device name here” getting updated to “insert latest Android software here”. When I say I get asked this the most, I mean it’s usually a more common question than when the next best phone is coming out for T-Mobile.  I really want to make this a scolding Motorola post because I think it’s incredibly disheartening and bad form that they … [read full article]

HTC Explains Reasoning For Slow Updates

I think its safe to say that the delayed Android updates from Motorola have upset more than just a few of you, right?  The lack of updates combined with the lack of information regarding them has certainly soured many T-Mobile customers and Motorola customers on purchasing from the company in the future. Much like Samsung went through with the Behold II, it seems as though Android users are at the mercy of … [read full article]

Bad Move For Motorola, T-Mobile And Android In General

Let me just start by saying that I’ve been a little out of the loop these past few days, so if I haven’t responded to your email, tweet or smoke signal, my apologies. So many of you have written in regarding the delayed announcement by Motorola regarding the Cliq update, and for very good reason. You are upset, no upset would not be the right word, livid would probably be a better explanation for … [read full article]

Android 2.1 Update For Motorola CLIQ Delayed

Don’t say we didn’t tell you! Today, Motorola officially announced, via their support forums, that Android 2.1 for the CLIQ has been delayed. Motorola states that the reason they’re unable to deliver the Android 2.1 update for the planned Q2 date is because of a decision to take more time on the release to help “optimize the experience in some key areas”. This delay seems to line up perfectly with what we heard … [read full article]

Motorola Updates Android Update, Cliq and Cliq XT Listed

Update: In my absentmindedness, Alex was kind enough to help me remember this has been posted before, and again here. Turns out, nothing has changed but for now we’ll leave the post up as a reminder for Cliq and Cliq XT owners. It’s not unusual for us to get vague answers regarding future Android updates and certainly with the Samsung Behold 2 situation fresh in our minds, they are fair questions. Motorola … [read full article]

Motorola Cliq Getting Bump To Android 2.1 In July?

While we’re running this one without any sort of documentation to back it up, a number of sources emailed in last light stating the Motorola Cliq will be getting the Android 2.1 in “early July.” Normally we’d take it with a  grain of salt, but when a dozen or more people email in the same thing, we have to consider the possibility its real. So take this with a grain of salt but … [read full article]

Motorola Cliq Running Android 2.1 Spotted In Wild?

For the moment we’re chalking up this screenshot of a Motorola Cliq running Android 2.1 is as rare as the White Unicorn. This image, courtesy of those fine folks at AndroidCommunity is about as stumped as we are and as they say “have information to give you about this.” Of course the model number is MB200 aka the Motorola Cliq and the phone is clearly running on T-Mobile US but that’s about all we … [read full article]
