If you’re a peachy-keen Android/Motorola user, then you’re no doubt jonesing for some upgrade action. Well, I have some good news and some not-so-good news on the matter.

Good news: Over the weekend, Motorola released their upgrade schedule, outlining which models will get which version of Android, and when.

Not-so-good news: I really wish I could tell you that you’re all getting Froyo, but sometimes you just don’t get the dessert you wanted.

So, who gets what when? Follow on through for the details.

North America
Droid X by Motorola (USA): Upgrade to Android 2.2 planned for late summer
Devour (USA): Will not have a software upgrade to Android 2.1
Backflip, Cliq and Cliq XT (USA): Upgrade to Android 2.1 (testing in process) planned for late Q3/early Q4
All Android 2.1 and 2.2 upgrades for Canada are under evaluation only. This includes the Backflip, Dext, Milestone, Quench

Europe
Milestone: Initial rollout of upgrade to Android 2.2 planned for Q4
Backflip and Dext: Will not have software upgrades to Android 2.1

Asia-Pacific
Milestone, Motoroi and Titanium (all Korea): Initial rollout of upgrades to Android 2.2 planned for Q4
Milestone (Asia-Pacific): Upgrade to Android 2.2 under evaluation
Backflip, Dext and Quench (all Asia-Pacific): Upgrades to Android 2.1 under evaluation

Latin America and Mexico
Milestone: Upgrade to Android 2.2 under evaluation
Backflip and Dext: Will not have software upgrades to Android 2.1

So, like I said, it’s not all good news, especially if you’re in Canada.

Of course, the wonderful thing about Android is that someone, somewhere is probably porting a version of Froyo over to your phone, anyway. Doesn’t that make you feel all warm and snuggly inside?
