It Really Did Happen, Android 2.1 Now Being Pushed To Droids

As a follow-up to a post that I wrote yesterday, Motorola Droid users are very happy to know that the long-awaited 2.1 update for Android is in fact being pushed to Droids by Verizon. Verizon is pushing the update in waves, but Droid owners who don’t want to wait can manually update their phones manually following some simple instructions. From a quick search on Twitter on the word “droid,” it appears that the updates have been pretty smooth and overall everyone is pleased.

For those who don’t understand all the fuss, this update enables Droid users to have the functionality that Nexus One users have enjoyed from day one. The features include:

– Pinch-to-zoom in the browser, photo gallery, and Google Maps

– The new weather and news widget

– Support for voice-to-text entry in any text input field

– Live Wallpapers

– Support for Yahoo Mail
