It's been a wild ride the past couple of weeks with news of the Nexus One, Android 2.1 and the Droid. We've got some good news and some even better news for the Droid nation out there.

First of all, we've always supported choice in the market... choice promotes innovation, competition and of course competitive pricing, so it's always a good thing for consumers. Google has just made sure that there will be plenty of that with new-edge, high tech cell phones.

The Nexus One has been announced and it currently is available for sale both unlocked and unsubsidized or via contract on T-Mobile. However, more importantly for us it's also available on the Verizon network starting in Spring of 2010.

The Droid of course is a great phone and has great hardware and some features that the Nexus One does not... and that's when we were excited to hear from the Google team that Android 2.1 should be "open sourced" and available for use on handsets that support it (this includes the Droid) within the next couple of days. Expect to see all the goodness of 2.1 on your Droid very soon, including Live Wallpapers and the recently announced Google Earth for Android which will be available from the App store very soon.

@BucYouUp68,
They did say that, but I'm guessing it's w/ the scheduled update on the 22nd. But hey, the sooner the better!

@cmacv,
That is a good question. Do you have to go to a verizon wireless store or can you do it from the phone?

@jstwondrng,
The articles I've read have us getting 2.1 on January 22nd. What's the source for getting it this week? :confused:

@cmacv,
I really want something written in stone. If it was coming in a matter of days, I would have thought there would be some kind of confirmation (like how we knew about the 2.0.1 update). We know for sure we're getting an update on the 22nd, but we don't know what it's to. I know, it's not like it's that far away, lol.

@droid him,
Android Forums posted an article about 2.1SDK being available. Apparently, that's for the developers to ease the transition, or whatever technological lingo applies. So, we should be confident that it will be here soon.
