The silence has ended! Motorola finally announced via their support forums that the Android 2.1 update has already rolled out to a small sampling of Droids and will begin to rollout to the rest of you, well, over the next few weeks. Yes, the “next few weeks.”
If you haven’t already gone through the manual installation process and are waiting for the actual notification to show up on your device, just be warned that it could be a while. If you have any concerns about that process, check out the news and notes section we put together yesterday or the hundreds of comments left by our fabulous readers. Heck, you might as well check out the poll we ran asking for people’s thoughts on the update too.
Here is the official message…
We are pleased to announce the much anticipated DROID 2.1 upgrade has begun rolling out. The roll out will happen in phases and will be delivered to your DROID over the course of the next few weeks.
As many of you know, 2.1 will bring several enhancements to your DROID. These include pinch to zoom for web browsing, speech to text functionality, a new and improved photo gallery and dynamic live wallpapers.

We sincerely apologize for what we know has been a frustrating experience for you regarding communications on the status of the upgrade. We want to reassure all of our fans that we are dedicated to providing you with the best possible service and we have been listening to each and every one of your comments.
To that end, we excited to announce we will be launching a Support tab on our Facebook page in the next two weeks as well as dedicating more resources to answer your inquiries. We hope it will become a valuable asset where we can not only directly address your technical questions but also provide a place for you to share ideas with one another, report problems and give us general feedback.
Thanks for your patience while we and our partners finalized your 2.1 upgrade – and most importantly, let us know what you think.
