Backflip owners, you’re finally right on the heels of the  promised upgrade to Android 2.1 for your devices. Just as they’ve done with devices before it, Motorola’s looking for testers to try out the upgrade before they send it out en masse. We’re not sure where a Backflip owner might have had to sign up for email updates, but the program is invite only to the first 1,000 people that sign up. Be sure to check your inbox to see if you’ve received the following message:

“Motorola and AT&T are happy to announce a trial release of the 2.1 (Éclair) software upgrade for Backflip, before it is officially released to all customers. We are recruiting 1,000 Backflip owners to test and provide feedback on the upgrade process and software experience.

If you’re a Backflip owner and you’re interested in testing the 2.1 software, please fill out this short registration form.

This registration period will be open until we receive our limit of qualified applicants. Note that you must be a member of the Motorola Owners’ Forums to register. If you want to take part, just join this community now and then fill in the 2.1 user trial registration form. Please note that registering will not guarantee you’ll be among those testing the 2.1 software. Testers will be chosen on a first-come; first-served basis, and on your registration responses.

Additionally, not every owner invited to take part will end up receiving the software, as the download period will be limited to a specific period of time.”
