Verizon announces Android 2.1 for Motorola Droid owners. “A limited rollout has already been started, and most customers should see update starting April 1st. It’s an over-the-air release, so don’t worry about having to download and install it manually. Make sure you keep your battery at over 40%, though, because Verizon says that the OTA update won’t go through if you don’t have enough juice. Finally, Droid owners will get their goodies including Yahoo! Mail integration, Pinch-to-Zoom, the new Gallery app, and speech-to-text features. In an internal email picked up by Engadget, Verizon outlines a rollout schedule that includes around 10,000 Droids so far, with another 200,000 slated to get the update on April 1st. This email comes after a series of setbacks with the release. In fact, the release date was still listed as “TBA” just a couple of days ago.
