Verizon FTW: Droid Eris 2.1 Update ‘Coming Soon’

I guess Sprint was feeling a bit lonely: Verizon has recently revealed on their official support site for the Droid Eris that users can expect an update to 2.1 ‘soon’. Unfortunately, they don’t offer a more specific time table, but they do provide documents both detailing the benefits of upgrading as well as instructions on how to do so, which is definitely reassuring.

Reading through the documents provided, it looks like Verizon is going to deliver the update over-the-air, as well as require the user to wipe the device.

Memory Card App Storage Support (Apps2SD) Coming To Android ‘Soon’

Utilizing SD cards for the storage of apps has undoubtedly been one of the biggest feature requests of Android since the G1 was released, with users being limited to the internal storage capacity of their devices to install applications on. Fortunately, Google have finally addressed the issue, and an update may not be too far away.

A post on Issue 1151 yesterday by a Google representative confirmed that the feature was ‘coming soon’ to Android devices, although no exact information was divulged at the time.

Android 2.2 To Have An Updated Market With Automatic App Update?

I am not one to usually fall into the rumor mill and believe all the rumors that tend to circulate regarding anything Android related but this particular item seems very believable, especially considering it comes with some pretty realistic screenshots.

What am I referring to? I’m talking about one of the features so many people have been asking for since Android 1.5 was released - either automatic application updating or at least batch application update or both, and it looks like the former is on its way with the upcoming Android 2.2 update.

We are all tired of waiting for Android 2.1 to finally officially land on the HTC Hero, or even get a definite day announced by anyone official.

Speculations after speculations that started back in November kept predicting new dates after dates for an upgrade, starting from January to pretty much every week of April, and now May.

In light of these "rumors", we found a new rumor of that we wanted to share, with smiles on our faces.

Devour Gets A Minor Update, 2.1 Still Nowhere To Be Found

While it’s still unknown when we’ll see a 2.1 update on the Devour, it looks like Verizon has dropped a minor update that should keep you busy in the meantime.

It’s the usual bug fixes and minor application enhancements that we’ve seen carriers drop from time to time, so nothing to write home about, but it’s always nice to know that carriers and manufacturers are paying attention to your device. I haven’t had the opportunity to play with a Devour just yet (I’ll be happy to provide you with my address, Moto!), so I’m not able to give any first hand thoughts on the update but I’m sure the changes are welcome.
