Long story short: Motorola was going to update the Cliq XT to Android 2.1 - and told people about it! - and now they're not, after "months of testing".
The moral of this short story: Never ever buy something because you hope it'll get updated. Even a company totally promises. Oh, and a big "ugh" to Motorola for promising it in the first place. [Motorola via Engadget]
