Optimus 2X gets Gingerbread today

Written by Fuad Abazovic



3D and Black later in November, open


LG is not a key brand in the mobile phone business and when it comes to updates, you will definitely get a few gray hairs before you actually see them coming.

The company’s first dual-core phone, LG Optimus 2X was supposed to get Gingerbread Android 2.3 back in the summer and now according to LG Facebook page it comes out today, November 1st.

The owners of this phone were lucky enough support from Cyanogen mod team and most of them had Android 2.3.7 for a few months now.

LG Optimus 3D owners should be getting ginger love in the week of November 21st, at least for open models in Europe, while the LG Optimus Black gets Android 2.3 in the week of November 28th.

One comment at LG’s Facebook page has caught our eye. Johan Sjöblom writes: “They better give Optimus ICS really damn fast to repair the damage they made with this awfully late update, or I will never buy LG again. The support seems to be lacking strongly!” This seems to echo the sentiment of many users.

Since there is an ongoing rumour that Optimus 2X will never get official Ice Cream Sandwich, Android 4.0 support, I am sure that many people will find it hard to choose an LG high-end phone again.

I am one of those people that will NEVER buy LG again. Even if ICS comes in a week's time.

Using facebooks to push updates to your customers? Really? You stupid [censored]s.

Quoting thematrix606:

True

But what if its a nexus line?
Still no by me

Half a year later just in time for 4.0 they come out with 2.3x? Why bother.

My LG Optimus 7 got updated when the last major update came out. Oops, that was Mango for Windows Phone my bad. Hmmm, that almost feels smug like an Apple fanboy comment. My bad. While I feel for those waiting for an update that comes late or may never arrive, well..., is anyone truly surprised this is happening? If there's one thing Microsoft does do well, it is updates. Even Apple has a right to be a bit smug in that area. But, it's a price to pay on an open-platform. There's nothing wrong with that approach as long as you understand the cons. But average Joe won't know that till they become informed. For the most part, most people won't care unless they find out they're left without the "new" stuff.
