You can go ahead and put away the pitchforks and torches. After putting a scare into folks earlier in the week with talks of hardware requirements, the handset maker has committed to Android 2.3 for their Optimus One series of phones.
LG will upgrade all Optimus One smartphones currently using the Froyo OS to the next version of the Android OS, Gingerbread. Details of the upgrade schedule will be announced locally in due course. We sincerely apologize for the confusion and misunderstanding that was caused regarding this issue.
This is means all those low-priced Android phones like the Optimus T at T-Mobile will be supported with at least one major update. No word on how soon this will take effect, but we’re glad to add them to the list of known devices. Keep an eye on these, and other handsets, with our Gingerbread Tracker!
