LG backtracks from its statement about “No Gingerbread for Optimus One”
Hours ago, there was lot of buzz around the tech media about the so called announcement from LG that it will not be updating its Optimus One line of phones in United States and may be elsewhere. LG US cited some lame excuse of processor requirement in Android 2.3 for the decision.
The processor requirement issue was immediately quashed by an Android Engineer on Twitter, now LG has released a brief statement in this regard saying that it previous statement was premature. Company also added that Google had not yet published the Gingerbread Compatibility Definition Document (CDD) or the public branch open source code. Once the CDD and the source code is public, LG will evaluate the upgradability of the Optimus Series.
So, the Optimus One users take a sigh of relief, the update might come to your phones, and considering that Optimus One sold so many units, I do not think company will ditch the users.
