Verizon has issued a statement regarding the Motorola DROID Android 2.1 firmware update, after it was widely rumored to have been delayed. Verizon says that there was no delay and that the firmware update went out to a small sample of users yesterday, just as was originally planned.

If the update appears to function well for those test users, the company will schedule a full scale deployment in the near future.  No dates have been given so far.
