Motorola now says Android 2.1 coming soon for Droid, not this week

Motorola revises its timeline for rolling out the Android 2.1 update to Droid users.

Looks like we've got another case of someone pulling the trigger a little too early. After posting a Facebook update on Monday stating that an Android 2.1 update would be coming to Droid owners this week, Motorola is now backtracking and saying that it's coming soon.

The bad news came when a Motorola Owners' Forum manager said on Wednesday that the company "jumped the gun" on posting details of the update, which have now been removed from the forum and Moto support site. Motorola didn't have any more to say, other than a rollout of the over-the-air software is expected soon. Harumph.
