The HTC Desire and Desire HD on TELUS will receive updates to Gingerbread sometime this Spring, while a TELUS-approved Froyo update for the Motorola Milestone is expected "very soon", according to information provided by the Canadian carrier to MobileSyrup. Other Android update plans include Froyo for the Samsung Galaxy Apollo, also due in Spring, and Gingerbread for the LG Shine Plus, due in early Summer. The Shine Plus will skip Froyo altogether and receive an update from Eclair straight to Gingerbread.
Gingerbread updates for the Desire series have already been confirmed for Q2 by HTC, but today’s news will reassure TELUS customers that their updates won’t lag too far behind the European and Asian versions. Similarly, European Milestones got their Froyo update today, so it’s not too surprising to hear that a carrier-approved version isn’t far behind.
Here is a bit of good news for Nexus S and Nexus One owners – the Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread update has officially started rolling out. The Twitter account, GoogleNexus, tweeted a few minutes ago that the update had started. Here is what was stated:
Gingerbread (Android 2.3.3) update now rolling out to Nexus S and Nexus One. Be patient, may take a few weeks for OTA to complete.
In this update, users should get near-field communications (NFC) capabilities, as well as a fix for random reboots and other bugs. Sounds good to me! Be sure to let us know when you receive your update so the whole world can know. I just wonder how long it will take for the Gingerbread update to hit other Android devices like: the HTC Droid Incredible, HTC EVO, Motorola Droid X, Droid Pro, etc. Btw, Galaxy S owners we wish you luck!
