Motorola is on the prowl for 1,000 willing Backflip users to test out the long awaited Android 2.1. Last week Motorola was looking for Cliq users and now it’s time for the Backflip to get some Eclair love.

Motorola has sent out emails requesting users to help test the Android 2.1 update, although we’re unsure how Backflip users might of signed up to receive such emails but be sure and check your inbox. Motorola is accepting the first 1,000 responders to enjoy a little Eclair early.

The email sent out said the following:

“Motorola and AT&T are happy to announce a trial release of the 2.1 (Éclair) software upgrade for Backflip, before it is officially released to all customers. We are recruiting 1,000 Backflip owners to test and provide feedback on the upgrade process and software experience.

If you’re a Backflip owner and you’re interested in testing the 2.1 software, please fill out this short registration form.

This registration period will be open until we receive our limit of qualified applicants. Note that you must be a member of the Motorola Owners’ Forums to register. If you want to take part, just join this community now and then fill in the 2.1 user trial registration form. Please note that registering will not guarantee you’ll be among those testing the 2.1 software. Testers will be chosen on a first-come; first-served basis, and on your registration responses.

Additionally, not every owner invited to take part will end up receiving the software, as the download period will be limited to a specific period of time.”

Any of you received this email yet?
