Motorola updates its Android upgrade schedule – DEXT still "under evaluation"

Motorola, which maintains a rather useful public list of its current thinking on Android upgrades to stop all of us hassling it endlessly, has updated it once more – but there’s still no news of an OS update for the Motorola DEXT.

An update for the Euro DEXT is still “under evaluation” according to the site, so it looks like the DEXT, which is still being sold via Orange in the UK, is joining the ‘Lost Generation’ of Android phones, doomed never to go beyond Android 1.5.

Let’s have a moment of silence for the DEXT, as we somberly read the names of those left behind:


Nice that the BACKFLIP is at least getting an update in the US. If you own a BACKFLIP and live in the US.

  1. Surely it can’t be that hard for them to port the update from the US to Europe in the case of the Backflip and from Asia to Europe for the Dext? Will if nothing else potentially help them shift the remaining stock in the shops in the UK etc and maybe create a bit more good publicity/feeling. It sure is cheaper than an advertising campaign!

  2. Forgot to add, fair play for Motorola for creating this list though!

  3. The Cliq is the USA name for the dext right? I assume clever people on the internet will make that work for the Dext too.

    I am in no hurry for my Dext upgrade here in the UK. I am happy with my phone as it is. Getting the upgrade will be a bonus but it not essential for me.

    I wish I had bought a Dext now – the lady at the orange shop said there would be an update.

    If I had bought a dext I could have taken it back and perhaps negotiated a hefty discount.

    As it is, the price hasn’t dropped any.


  7. How do you think you can negotiate a hefty discount if the lady in the shop said there would be an update and so far nothing is confirmed? it’s a pretty poor fact to base your argument on. the best you can hope for is a full refund.

    T-Mobile US have released 2.1 on their CLIQ, so maybe DEXT in Europe will be along shortly, fingers crossed?

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…
