Gingerbread update for the T-Mobile myTouch 4G & G2 is arriving starting on August 6th
Once seen as the heavy handed power punch combo for Big Magenta, both the T-Mobile G2 and myTouch 4G are getting just a little bit of spark back into their lives thanks to their upcoming Android 2.3 Gingerbread updates.

For a while now, we’ve been hearing lots of information about it, but we’ve actually started to hear news about their roll out of late – albeit, some are still eagerly awaiting for its arrival. Well, for those who seemingly are unable to get the highly anticipated update to Gingerbread, customers can head into their local T-Mobile store starting on August 6th to get it. However, it’s worth noting that handset owners located in the midwest and west regions will need to wait until August 13th before heading in.

From the sound of it, handsets will be updated by using an SD card provided by the store. Meaning, it'd be a darn good idea to backup your data beforehand just in case something catastrophic occurs. Indeed, these handsets have been flaunting Froyo for some time now, but it’s nevertheless awesome to see them getting a new lease on life with Gingerbread.

After my run-in with the leaked ROM from a few months back, I think I'll be avoiding this update at least until I hear some reactions about it.

my G2 got the OTA and it is amazing I can def. tell the change in battery life, other than that some of the changes are just aesthetic, but all in all I have not had any issues with the program.
