A reliable source has just let us in on how Verizon Wireless will be rolling out the Android 2.1 update to your Motorola DROID, and it looks like quite a few of us will be waiting for quite a while for our update. Our source details the following:

  • At noon EDT on 3/18, 1,000 users will receive notification of the update
  • At 11:59 PM EDT on 3/18, 9,000 more users will receive the update notification
  • After the first 10,000 users receive the update on 3/18, there will be a 24-hour period when no additional upgrades will be delivered
  • On Day 3 (3/20), 200,000 users will receive the update notification at 11:59 PM EDT
  • This schedule will continue each day thereafter until the update has been delivered to all users

And here are a few conditions needed for the update to be applied:

  • An OTA download requires 40% or more power availability
  • If the device is not connected to an external power source or 20% or more power if it is connected to an external source
  • If roaming, the customer will not receive the update

For those who are actually going to wait for the OTA version of 2.1, instead of grabbing it off the net and putting it on your media card, you could be waiting a while. Let the updates begin!
