I got my Cliq a week ago, not to long after they announced that a 2.1 update was coming, already had to trade it for a replacement due to faulty battery. As I look to the future I can't help but feel the Cliq will be in the same boat as the G1 soon. even the MT3g has 1.6. We still have the Backflip to be released with "Android 1.5 (upgradable to Android 2.x)". I wonder how many more phones will be released with 1.5/1.6. They must really be having a hard time with motoblur and 2.x because they have had the 2.0 on the droid for months now.
coming from 1st gen iphone I do like the cliq, I just wish I could at least use the google nav though.

"They must really be having a hard time with motoblur and 2.x because they have had the 2.0 on the droid for months now."
Having 2.0 on the Droid is in no way related to being allowed to distibute/update phones with Blur on 2.1. It just further proves that there is an NDA to wait until a predetermined date to be allowed to release the update. We just need to wait for that date.

i highly doubt we will see a 1.6 BLUR OS on anything. my guess is that whatever comes out will be 1.5 and then upgraded to 2.? or launch as 2.?.
anything is possible but it wouldnt make sense to update BLUR to 1.6 to me unless it was already in the works for some phones coming out.
i have read on many places that the jump from 1.5 to 1.6 is like XP Home to XP Pro which isnt much but the jump from 1.5/1.6 to 2.? is like XP to 7 so there is a lot more to upgrading and most likely why there is a wait for it.
