Update 3/17: And we got even better details on the roll-out. Head here.
And just like that, we now have the date for the official Motorola Droid's Android 2.1 update. It was just approved today and will be rolled out in batches of 250,000 starting this Thursday, March 18, at high noon (EDT). So if you don't get it in the first batch, hang on for a little bit. Or, even better, once we have the download link it should be no problem to apply the update manually, just as we did for Android 2.0.1.
Hang in there a little while longer, people. We're close. In the meantime, here's a new thread to muck up while you're waiting. And thanks, anon!
