Motorola Milestone one to get 2.2, No upgrade for the rest

"We Don't Really Care. We just want your money"

Motorola Announced the time line for updates of their android phones, and out all those phones that are not on android 2.2 Froyo only the Droid/Milestone will get froyo, rest will get Eclair no update at all. When these phones were launched Motorola promised updates for all but I guess they short listed their favorite ones.

One of the most shocking was XT720 no getting the froyo update, It has the same stuff the milestone has and has a overclocked processor and a better 8MP camera with HDMI out… I know sounds better than the milestone but didn’t the same marketing love so wasn’t as much popular. But still people Bought it and they deserve a update.

But that not the only fragmentation they are doing, it also depends on what part of the word you live to get the taste one of Android’s deserts. If you live in the US your Backflip or the Cliq will get to taste Eclair but if you don’t  then you don’t. Sad but true…. I don’t get what Dr. Sanjay Jha the CEO of Motorola is trying to indicate…
