After what seems like a lengthy wait, LG has finally bought Android Gingerbread 2.3 to its Optimus series, announcing that it will be rolling out the update to three handsets throughout November.
The Korean mobile manufacturer confirmed the update schedule via a post on its Facebook page yesterday, informing owners of the Optimus 2X, Optimus 3D and the Optimus Black that the software will be rolled out to their devices this month.
LG said that it “would like to express its sincere thanks to all of the Optimus Series owners who have been waiting patiently for the Android 2.3 Gingerbread upgrade. We are excited by the high level of product interest that LG Optimus Series owners have shown, and we are taking all possible measures to offer a smooth OS upgrade in a timely manner.”
European Optimus 2X users will be able to update their handsets from today (1 November) whilst owners of the Optimus 3D must wait until 21 November. The Optimus Black will begin receiving the update on 28 November.
Whilst the news will undoubtedly be welcomed by LG Optimus users, many will well feel that the firm still has a long way to go in matching its rivals in terms of rolling out updates, especially considering that the likes of HTC have already intimated which of its devices are likely to receive the recently announced Ice Cream Sandwich update.
