The guys and gals at Engadget apparently have gotten word of what we can expect when the Motorola Droid gets its next update. Here's the scoop:
- Looks like it'll be based off the Android2.1-update1 build that Google put out last week on the Nexus One.
- And that means expect multitouch in the browser, to go along with the pinch-to-zoom that was enabled on the Droid for Google Maps just last week.
- Google Googles is baked into the ROM by default (also standard in Android 2.1-U1).
- The Droid's home screen remains as is -- no new rotating app thingy instead of the drawer, and no live wallpapers.
- The news and weather widget from the Nexus One will be included.
Yeah, it's a bummer there won't be live wallpapers, and that the app drawer remains. Some of that's likely due to the hardware difference -- the Nexus One does have Snapdragon, after all -- and some of that's likely just the usual customization differences.
Unfortunately, nobody knows when -- or if, really -- this build for the Droid will be released. And so, we wait. [Engadget]
