When the Nexus One was announced, many folks were questioning Google’s game plan and why it would release such an amazing device shortly after the Motorola DROID’s release. If that wasn’t enough to make some DROID owners envious, the Nexus One received a multitouch update last week which allowed pinch-to-zoom gestures within Google Maps, the Android browser and photo gallery. What could possibly quell all this Nexus One envy?
If getting multitouch for Google Maps wasn’t enough for DROID owners last week, they’ll be thrilled to know that their handsets are going to be graced with Android 2.1 in the future. Best of all, it’s coming with all the bells and whistles that can currently be found only on the Nexus One. Here is a run-down of what’s included according to Engadget:
Sadly, you’ll have to exercise some patience because there is no time frame for this update’s release. In the meantime, don’t look at your DROID with disdain and resentment. Instead, appreciate it and constantly remind yourself that when the Android 2.1 update comes out, you can one-up the Nexus One by saying, “Well, at least mine has a physical keyboard.”
Update: Motorola announced on its Facebook page that the Android 2.1 update will begin rolling out this week! Keep your eyes peeled for the update.
