Motorola Cliq XT owners got the bad news today that their smartphones will be left to limp off into the sunset with Android 1.5 Cupcake.
Forums manager "Moto Matt" delivered the news in a post today, while acknowledging that the news will likely frustrate a number of users who anxiously awaited the update. "Our product team members worked for months to attempt to create a version of Android 2.1 that would perform well on the Cliq XT," he wrote. "They gave it everything they had. We even took the unprecedented step of investigating the benefits of code provided by the independent developer community to try to improve XT performance."
If you think you've heard this joke before, it's because you have. The Behold II from Samsung also ran into a wall of sorts when it came to updates. That T-Mobile handset only saw one update, Android 1.6 Donut, before Samsung quit supporting the device.
