LG Optimus S finally receives its long awaited Android 2.3 Gingerbread update
When it was first released last fall, one of the nice things about owning the LG Optimus S was the fact that it came with Android 2.2 Froyo out of the box – and in fact, it was one of the few at the time to sport that version. Fast forward to almost a year later, the handset is finally moving up to the next version of Android.

Sprint announced the beloved news that many handset owners have been waiting for, which is none other than the fact that the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the handset is being rolled out. However, they’re releasing it in droves over the course of the next 10 days – so don’t be alarmed if you don’t see that notification today.

As always, the new software update features the usual suspect of enhancements that tend to come with major updates, a refreshed user interface, the addition of a new multi-touch keyboard, dedicated power management app, task killer app, and an updated camera app. In addition, it addresses a couple of annoying problems relating to the phone’s volume control and 3-way calling.

Of course, it was a long time in the making, but nevertheless, LG Optimus S owners have plenty to look forward to as they’re finally getting the Gingerbread treatment.
