T-Mobile G2 replacement units are coming back with Gingerbread aboard
During the weekend, a leaked screenshot of T-Mobile's inventory showed the HTC G2 with Google Titanium Kit to be on backorder, but nearing EOL. Some of those whose T-Mobile G2 devices have started to show the wear and tear of age and as a result, were sent back to the carrier in exchange for a replacement unit, might have been stunned to find out that their replacement model came with Android 2.3.3 installed. This could indicate that the Gingerbread update will soon be sent out to all G2 handsets.

Time has become compressed in the smartphone world. The T-Mobile G2 was launched last October and already is about to go EOL. Of course, technology being what it is, the nation's fourth largest carrier has a number of Android models that put the G2 to shame, including the far superior T-Mobile G2x.

If this is the end of the line for the G2, it goes out in a blaze of glory with the Gingerbread update apparently imminent. And once the handset does get Gingerbread, it will make the owners time with the phone a little more enjoyable until their two year contract expires in no sooner than four months.
