The recent Google Maps 3.4 update might have been good news for Motorola Droid users, but the juicier news is that the phone should be getting an Android 2.1 update sometime in the future too, which should help it compete better with Google’s Nexus One. The firmware is still going through testing at Verizon, but details on it have surfaced, which includes:
- The current build is 2.1 version 1
- The browser now supports multi-touch, but there’s no Flash in sight.
- The home screen is still the same as 2.0.1, so there’s no rotating 3D grid of icons. You’re still stuck with the pull-up tab at the bottom
- No active wallpapers
- News and weather widgets from the Nexus One are included.
