UPDATE: We’re now receiving word that it may be another 1-2 weeks before we see Gingerbread on the G2x. No word on whether this was a delay or whether our original rumor was incorrect. We’ll keep you updated.
Great news for all of you (us) G2x owners out there! A few of our trusted tipsters have informed us that owners of the T-Mobile G2x may not have to wait much longer to get updated to Android 2.3 Gingerbread. We already knew straight from T-Mobile’s Twitter feed that the G2x Gingerbread update is due to come out before summer (read: sometime in June), but our ninjas are pointing us to a release as early as the first half of next week.
Once the Gingerbread update is released, G2x owners can expect various performance enhancements, as well as the overhauled Gingerbread UI. Hopefully LG is working hard to throw in bugfixes to the several ailments that have plagued T-Mobile’s beloved flagship, though whether those will be packaged as part of the Gingerbread update or as a separate OTA remains to be seen.
As a G2x owner, I’m stoked that the Gingerbread update is seemingly right around the corner, and I’m sure you guys are as well. As always, we’ll update you if we learn of any new information on the G2x update. Stay tuned, and let the excitement begin!
