Has the Motorola DROID update been scrapped? All signs point to yes.

UPDATE: Verizon says that the update is going ahead as planned. The small batch of users have received their update already and they still hope to release it to more people if there are no known issues.

Just a quick update for all you Motorola Droid owners who have been obsessively checking your phone today to see if it would be updated to Android 2.1. Don’t bother.

It turns out that the OTA update will not be rolling out today as originally planned. Though 9,000 people were expected to be the first to receive the update this morning, Droid owners are once again in the dark about when they will get the latest version of Android.

BGR got a tip confirming the update cancellation that reveals: “The OTA software update for the DROID by Motorola is TBD. A new date will be communicated as soon as possible…The 3/18 OTA software update will not happen as planned.”

And cue the irate Droid owners condemning Verizon, Motorola, and the subcontractor who actually delivers these updates…now.

Were any of you lucky enough to receive an update or are you still stuck on 2.0?
