If only they would put a time stamp on that table. 2.1 has been out for months for the Milestone.
I don't see a problem? My phone works fine? Now when that update comes out everyone will whine about the next update... its futile to think the software developers will ever be ahead...
I think the big beef is that the phone was advertised as being "ready" to run flash in the browser, but when that feature is added to Android with 2.2, Motorola suddenly have second thoughts about implementing it.
Yes, we know they need to stop taking the OS updates at some points, but to do so after 6-7 months of selling it, and without actually delivering what was sold, is really a bit naughty whichever way you look at it.
Stop with the Flash already, it is not the most important thing in this world!
Besides, when Flash comes to the Milestone and you notice how laggy it is with it you will start whining about that.
BTW., Milestone has been out for 9 months.
View attachment 9218Its Not Motorola fault about the flash as when milestone came out it was flash ready as adobe said flash required 2.0 and above not just 2.2
Unfortunately for Motorola they made the claim in their advertising. And now 2.2 has given them the option to deliver on it.
Pretty sure that in the UK they will be guilty of false advertising if they don't deliver (your experience in other countries may vary). Flash doesn't bother me too much, but being left running an 'old' version of Android when the hardware is less than 12 months old and clearly capable of running the latest version bugs me. When companies bug me, I stop giving them money.
You keep whining and wasting your time and I will keep waiting patiently for whatever happens.
Where am I whining? I merely replied to an earlier poster who was happy to stay on 2.1 telling him why some people were very agitated about the lack of commitment to 2.2 on the Milestone, then you butted in and started getting irritated that I mentioned Flash...?
And the only person wasting my time appears to be you
I bought the Milestone as at the start of this year it was (for me) clearly the Android handset to beat, and looked like it had a decent future - meaning 1 to 2 years. I understand that minimum requirements for Gingerbread may mean it never happens on Milestone / Droid, but there's no reason why since Droid has Froyo that European Milestone users can't, and why should we wait so much longer (or not at all?!!?).
For the record btw, Flash is just a bonus ... I want the speed improvements from the 'Just in time' compilation and the inbuilt tethering!
Who cares about speed so much as using the phone for a phone. All the Milestones purchased in Colorado (almost) are almost useless as a phone. Calls are terrible. The echo, digital sound, voice fading in and out, and dropped calls are just a few issues we are trying to deal with. I love the phone, but until they come out with a fix, it's just a PDA.
For those who haven't heard there is a minor upgrade to SHOLS_U2_03.11.0
It is OTA or via download at motorola.com/update
