The G2X had Gingerbread forever ago.... After they "ran short of inventory" and re-released the handset they were shipped out with 2.3.

"...while it's never too late"
Screw that it is way too late, what a joke, getting Gingerbread this late it should be insulting to everyone who bought this.

Sent from my Galaxy Nexus, which had ICS about 6 months ago, and which just received its 4th or 5th OTA update

4th or 5th update? Lucky you because on my Verizon Galaxy Nexus I'm still at official 4.0.2.

Yeah I will never buy LG. I bought the Sprint Galaxy Nexus to avoid carrier and manufactuer delays with updates, I know they are bigger and better phones now but with the GN's 1.2 dual core it should hold me over for 22 months and I'm not a power user anyway but I don't want the latest Adroid update.

It HAS had Gingerbread for a long time, they're just updating its version, Calm down people any update is a welcome update.

So they're putting it from 2.3.3 to 2.3.4? If they're updating Gingerbread, why not at least give em the 2.3.6 version?

ICS is already 6 months old, that's half a year, at this point if they're going to insist with Gingerbread it should be nothing less than 2.3.7
Anyway, any update is a good update like somebody said above, but it could and should be better

I thought that it came with 2.3 pre-installed? I don't understand why LG & T-Mo didn't just skip 2.3 and went to 4.0.

G2x comes with vanilla android right ? What take them so long to upgrade to ics ? Nice that Tmobile provide a G series for people that want stock android
