A few days ago, JR Raphael, from Computer World (Android Power), treated us with a nice, long list of devices that were expected to get Android 2.3 Gingerbread, as well as the ones that weren’t, and the maybes. After re-posting his work here, at Android and Me, it came to my attention that some of you were asking why the T-Mobile G2 was not on the list.
The device is actually the HTC Desire Z, which actually was on the list, but it goes with the name of T-Mobile G2 in the United States. For those that prefer to have specific information about the U.S. version, JR Raphael has actually posted an article stating that the G2 will, in fact, get a 2.3 upgrade within the second quarter of 2011, and he has also updated the information on his upgrade list.
The details on the G2′s update came to Raphael via an HTC spokesperson, which makes this information reasonably legitimate. We know that these “I was told by an employee who’s name I can’t disclose” news can be a bit shady, and sometimes not very accurate, so let’s just sit tight and wait to see what happens. For now, this is something to cheer your day and get your spirits back up, G2 users.
