Small pilot Gingerbread update for T-Mobile myTouch 4G starts Wednesday
A small number of users of the T-Mobile myTouch 4G will be getting an upgrade to Android 2.3.3 starting on Wednesday. Besides updating the OS, other changes include offering an update for Swype and bringing Exchange 2010 compatibility. Some bugs will be repaired including fixes for Bluetooth audio when answering a call, allowing messages to be saved in the inbox, a better domestic roaming signal, a display that is more responsive and stable during bootup and regular use, and a few unnamed stability and software fixes. Because the update will be downloading Android 2.3.3, not 2.3.4 onto the handset, gTalk video calling will not be enabled on the phone-at least for now.

If the small pilot test goes well, in a few weeks the update will resume and last the rest of the year which will allow all myTouch 4G owners to be rockin' the Gingerbread update. If you are one of the lucky ones whose myTouch 4G was chosen to be part of the pilot program,, let us know the changes that you've spotted on your handset by sending us a comment in the box below.

And still no update for HTC Inspire 4G. What's the deal with that?

how would one be able to check if they are in the test group? i cannot find a check for update button in the settings, like i could find on my mytouch3g.

Talk about slow roll-out. "... will continue through the end of the year"?
