In a move that doesn’t surprise us all given the state of Android OS upgrades these days, Motorola has decided to cease development on Android 2.1 for the Motorola Cliq XT. The lower-range handset will, instead, remain on good ol’ Android 1.5. I will give Cliq XT owners a minute to scream into a pillow.
All done? OK. Here is what Moto said:
“After comprehensive testing of the Android 2.1 upgrade for the CLIQ XT, we have concluded that this device will remain on Android 1.5. We realize many of you were anxiously awaiting this upgrade, but we aim to deliver software upgrades only when it will provide a better customer experience.”
Sad trombone. But what could we really expect?
