Motorola Milestone Android 2.2 Update Again Delayed
By on February 9th, 2011

One major complaint with the Android ecosystem is the delay in the release of Android OS updates by phone manufacturers. Google released the latest version of Android Gingerbread – to the public more than six weeks ago. Still, the only phone officially running Gingerbread is the Google branded Nexus S.

While the majority of the Android handset owners impatiently wait for their handset manufacturers to release the Android 2.3 update, some are still waiting for the Android 2.2 update.

One such handset is the Motorola Milestone. The Milestone is the European version of the highly popular and successful Motorola Droid but unlike the latter, the former never got its Android 2.2 update. The update was pushed back many times and last year, Motorola stated that they will release the Froyo update for the handset in early Q1 of 2011.

However, the company updated its Facebook page to inform Milestone owners that the update has again been delayed. The reason behind the delay has not been explained clearly by Motorola as well.

Nevertheless, the company does state that they will release the update before the end of current quarter. I wonder what is taking Motorola so long to release the Android 2.2 update for the Milestone. The original Droid was among the first few handsets to receive the Android 2.1 and Android 2.2 updates. There are not much hardware changes between the Droid and the Milestone as well.
