Motorola Backflip receives Android 2.1 update 

If you weren't lucky enough to be one of the 1,000 users recruited by Motorola and AT&T to test Android 2.1 on your Motorola Backflip, today is the day you can join the party.

The Eclair update is live and well on Motorola's and AT&T's respective websites. We weren't crazy about the Motorola Backflip, or the fact that it launched with Android 1.5, but hopefully this update will improve the Backflip experience for current and future owners.

So what are you waiting for?  Check the links above and begin your update process.  And while it's downloading, feel free to check out the release notes so you can know what to expect once you're up and running on 2.1.
