LG Optimus One gets updated to Android 2.3 Gingerbread... in Romania
People who have installed it report it is working fine, with the only issue being the proximity sensor now turns the screen back on at a larger distance when you finish the conversation.
The LG Optimus One has its versions on major US carriers, and turned out to be quite a popular budget Android handset, so hopefully the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update will be rolling to the New World sooner rather than later. Knowing the US carriers policies and restrictions when it comes to updating, though, LG will have more red tape to overcome on this side of the pond.

Because Romanian Carriers are cool about letting a company push out new software updates vs the USA, were the carriers like to place restrictions on them so we can't enjoy them.

My opinion is that you should wait a little while and see what others are saying. I have not noticed any improvement in surfing speed.
