    What's the OS on my backflip?

    Pretty straightforward question - Is the "Firmware version" in the Settings menu referring to the version of the Android OS?

    Where on the phone is this indicated? I am just wondering if in the future I upgrade to 2.1, 2.2, how would I know what version of the OS is installed? Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure "System version" refers to Motorolas firmware, while "Firmware version" refers to the version of Android you are running.

    This is correct. System Version is the version of Motorola's firmware, while Firmware Version is the version of Android on the phone.

    Hay.. Look at that..
    I was about 96% wrong..
    Sorry about the misinformation..

    The 4% truth I gave was that Motorola is rolling out the newer verson slowly..
    and that as of right now Q2 will be the new 2.1 android.

    Really? That's a shocker. I didn't expect them to move the date up.

    If you are right, we should have 2.1 in June.

    Nope, as of now, Q3 is when MOTOROLA expects to have 2.1 done. No idea how long AT&T will hold it back so they can cripple parts/add their bloatware.
