Motorola Cliq 2 getting Gingerbread 1.5 years late and not OTA


While it is true that it is better late than never, Motorola/T-Mobile has crossed the line with this one. It has been about a year and a half since the Motorola CLIQ 2 was announced, and it is now getting its Android 2.3 update. And to make matters even more inconvenient, the update will not be pushed over the air.

The update is said to come with Gingerbread and includes improved cursor controls, as well as better battery performance and a good list of other fixes. So if you are still holing on to your Cliq 2, you will be very glad to know that the waiting has paid off.

As mentioned above, though, the update process won’t be as intuitive and has to be done manually. Users can head to Motorola’s site for instructions and downloads. So if you want some Gingerbread goodness (now that ICS is the big boy), go right ahead and update your device.

        moto is in bed with verizon, even if t-mobile got another device from them it would be like1-2 years before it was updated

  • CryptoNoel

    This actually does not surprise me because his predecessor, the CLIQ, had to wait the same to get a buggy Android 2.1 when Android 2.2 was already out.

  • MIKEEEEE

    because of t-mo’s lousy data roaming agreement, i dumped my CLIQ2 for a verizon DROIDX2.

    no comparison.
