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.

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 the official Gingerbread update. Now, there’s no certainty here, as we don’t even have a release date for the update, but it’s possible that a lucky hacker got their hands on an early release.
