LG Optimus One gets updated to Android 2.3 Gingerbread... in Romania

LG Optimus One gets updated to Android 2.3 Gingerbread... in Romania
The update to the latest Android is starting to roll out for the popular LG Optimus One, which was one of LG's best-sellers last year, with innovative promotional campaigns and celebrity endorsements to boot. Promised to arrive in May before, the first batch of the Gingerbread updates appears to have hit in Romania, of all places, as is confirmed from the comments on LG's Facebook page.

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.
