Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the LG Optimus One will possibly arrive in May

Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the LG Optimus One will possibly arrive in May
In recent memory, the LG Optimus One proved itself to be one decent budget smartphone that was one of the first devices on the market to offer Android 2.2 Froyo. Still, LG was even more confident at the end of 2010 about the device since they mentioned that it would be upgradeable to Android 2.3 Gingerbread some time down the road.

Well, it looks like we’re closing in on that reality seeing that LG India mentioned a time frame of some time before the end of May for Gingerbread’s arrival. However, it’s worth noting that it doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll arrive in a timely manner since the date “is subject to change.” Regardless of that, it’s just nice to know that the device is still going to get some love – despite witnessing some of its higher end siblings coming to market.

Meanwhile, it’s unclear at this point if that means we’ll see some of the variants of the device getting in with some sort of update as well. Still, it would be a daunting task for LG to accomplish, but there’s no denying that they can’t handle it.

This is gonna make a few of you in the UK not very happy ... Sent an Email to LG ( UK ) On 26th July 2011 - This is the reply ... Dear Customer If this update becomes available it wont be until september time. It is not 100% confirmed yet but keep checking the LG website for further information. I hope this has been of some assistance to you. Please do not hesitate in contacting us again should you require any further advice. Best Regards, LG Electronics UK Helpdesk --------------------------------------------------------------------------- So their does seem to be a change of plan from LG regarding the Optimus One update from a previous Email i got from LG back In May 2011. Note: All the other pervious "So Say" release dates "Have Not" been given out by LG !!!. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- So it would seem that the July thing ( and all the other pervious so say release dates ) are a big load of BS regarding the "Official" UK release of the 2.3 Gingerbread Update for the LG Optimus One. Updating with "Unofficial" updates will invalidate your warranty/guarantee for your Phone . Your Choice !!! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
