It was just a couple of days ago that Motorola started rolling out the Android 2.2 Froyo update for the Milestone.
However, the update was meant only for unlocked and unbranded Milestone handsets. Nevertheless, Today Motorola Canada has announced that the company will be releasing the Froyo update for the TELUS branded Milestone handsets sometime next week.
The Froyo update for the Milestone will bring with it performance improvements, bug fixes and some new features including Flash Player support. Other changes include JIT complier, new security features, text-to-speech and stability improvements.
The U.S. version of the Milestone, the Motorola Droid, got its Android 2.2 update just after a month of the official FroYo launch. However, it is only after nearly ten months that Motorola thinks it is time to update the Milestone to Android 2.2.
Officially, the Milestone got its Android 2.2 update this week. Unofficially, the phone got an Android 2.2 based Custom ROM last year in July itself!
This move clearly shows Motorola’s U.S. only strategies. The company has already highly restricted its activities outside the United States, and even closed a bunch of their service centers all over the world.
No wonder, most of the Motorola phones including the Droid X and the Atrix 4G have not been launched anywhere outside the United States, and in some cases Canada.
