Remember those days when the T-Mobile G2x looked like it was going to be one of the hottest handsets
of the summer? With the speed of a dual-core processor under the hood, a nice sized 4 inch display and featuring both a rear and front-facing camera, the device looked like it was ready to capture a large number of T-Mobile users and convert those from other carriers. And while some of this demand did show up, forcing a price hike to keep the device in stock
, and ultimately getting the phone pulled from T-Mobile's web site, owners of the model have been waiting for the update to Android 2.3.4 not only for the new features like gTalk
, but also to fix the bugs that have made the device hard to use
for some of its owners.
The last time we heard from LG about an update for the T-Mobile G2x was back in May when we passed along to you
the manufacturer's promise to have the Gingerbread update sent out to T-Mobile G2x owners by this summer
. With the clock staring to tick with Tuesday's start of the new season, a tweet from the LG Girl in response to a question, tells everyone that the update is still a huge focus for LG
and that, she says, is a promise. Hmm. She also says that she will give out more details
in a few days. Double Hmm.
Even if the update is sent out in the next few days, it might be too late to turn things around for the T-Mobile G2x, especially with the sizzling hot HTC Sensation 4G now available from the carrier. Missed opportunities like this have just got to hurt the executives of the manufacturer.
