Motorola Defy to Receive Froyo Update by Q2 2011

November 24, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Motorola has promised the Android 2.2 update for the Motorola Defy smartphone, but the bad news is that the update is scheduled to hit only in the second quarter of 2011. This may disappoint many users across the world as they might have expected a much earlier release date for the update.

The update will be available in Q2 of 2011 for the Defy owners in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. The customers in the US will be late in receiving the update.

The Android 2.2 Froyo OS is available in most of the smartphones getting released nowadays and therefore a wait of almost 6 more months to get the Froyo update will be disappointing for the Defy owners.

Another important factor is that the forthcoming versions of the Android OS, Gingerbread and Honeycomb, is likely to be alive in the markets at the time of the Froyo update promised by the company. If so, it will again add to the disappointment of the users as they’ll not be receiving the latest version of the OS then.

At present, the phone runs on the Android 2.1 (Eclair) version of the OS. The phone is a well equipped device but this late OS update can affect its demand in the market and thus it may result in a turndown in sales.
