Motorola Milestone gets Froyo in Canada

| March 28, 2011 | 0 Comments

The Motorola Milestone is the international version of the Motorola Droid launched via Verizon Wireless in the U.S. This phone was the main key to Motorola’s success, and, as you remember, the company managed to get its first income during the last three years. The original Droid was updated to Android 2.2 in August, but the European version of Milestone got Froyo only this month. Now the time for the Canadian Milestones has come.

The Motorola Milestone is available in Canada via Telus, and when the European versions were updated to Froyo, the carrier promised their handsets would receive an Android 2.2 update shortly after. Two days ago Motorola Canada announced they were going to keep their promise, and the update would soon be available at Motorola support page.

This is the next update from the Froyo update line that is being rolled out for other Motorola smartphones. As you remember, according to the last survey, 61% of Android devices run Froyo. After this update the number of Froyo-powered smartphones will rise. But I don’t think Motorola is on the first position by pushing out Android updates for its smartphones, as there are some low-end and mid-range smartphones that would remain on Éclair.

Generally, Android is probably the most development-friendly platform, but recently there were some changes in Google’s strategy: first, some manufacturers decided to lock their Android smartphones, thus preventing custom ROMs (I mean the HTC Thunderbolt 4G); second, not all Android handsets will be updated, and the Charm is a good example.

Anyway, Motorola and HTC are the main companions of Google, and their smartphones are being updated frequently.
