Motorola’s Android 2.2 Rollout

, , ,

Proving that because you hand them a decent smartphone OS doesn’t mean they’ll know what to do with it:

After a leaked Android 2.2 ROM became available through unofficial sources, Motorola sent cease and desist letters to websites hosting the update, according to IntoMobile. The reasoning may be sound — after all, folks who jumped the gun on Froyo for Sprint’s HTC Evo 4G ran into bugs that had to be patched later — but it doesn’t look good when lawyers try to stop people from making their phones better.

Sometimes “open” means never being quite sure what the hell is going on.
