Screenshot shows Motorola Cliq running Android 2.1

First things first, these screen shots are really easy to fake. Ridiculously easy. With that out of the way, it looks like a settings screen shot is showing a T-Mobile Motorola Cliq running Android 2.1. As in the 2.1 you guys hope and dream for. We know that Motorola has planned for the Cliq to get Android 2.1 in Q2 2010 sometime but as all Android users who've been waiting for 2.1 know, you never really know until the update is right there on your phone waiting to download. Maybe it's T-Mobile and Motorola testing it out? Or a rogue user finding a way to update himself. Hopefully it's coming soon. Because by the end of today, you guys will all be clamoring for 2.2. What a vicious cycle. [android community]

  • This should all be a sign that custom UIs like MotoBlur, Sense UI, Sony crap and Samsung garbage UI enhancements need to be .apks. All of these devices from the G1 to current can run Android 2.x just fine. The problem is these bullshit interfaces they wrap around them and embed in them.
  • Exactly. Those branding interfaces is what gets carriers into Android. Without it, many would not offer android phones. Hell Verizon even had to hoze over the Razr before they would accept it. But if they were .apks the user would have a choice. And it would probably be easier for them to fix things that way too.
