Droid Charge Gingerbread Update Spotted in the Wild
Personally, I’ve always wondered why the Samsung Droid Charge was launched with Froyo instead of Gingerbread. The only logical explanation that comes to mind is that Samsung hadn’t yet perfected TouchWiz to work with 2.3. Those days may be coming to an end, however, as the guys over at VZBuzz have gotten their hands on a video of the Droid Charge running what appears to be an official Gingerbread update. Now, there’s no certainty here, as we don’t even have a release date for said update, but it’s possible that a lucky hacker got their hands on an early build.
From the video, we can tell that the update includes the same version of TouchWiz, along with Android 2.3.3. There are also some bug fixes and a few color changes throughout the UI. In the last minute of the video, we can see that the Netflix app is working, while it doesn’t function on the current Froyo build that the Charge ships with. Other than that, not much is known about the update. But we’ll do some digging and try to find some more information.
In the meantime, how many of you out there own a Droid Charge? Excited that we’re finally seeing some news about Gingerbread for the device? Drop a comment below or on our Facebook Wall!
