At last, the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the T-Mobile G2 has finally been starting rolling out since July 27. This is such a long wait, since the update was predicted to come out in the second quarter. However, an update is an update and if you are one of the T-Mobile G2 users, I am sure you are happy to hear that. Also, with this Android 2.3 Gingerbread update, the T-Mobile G2 users will be able to take advantage of it.
The Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the T-Mobile G2 comes OTA. This means that it will automatically come to your T-Mobile G2 when the time comes by notifying you and let you choose to download and install it. Unfortunately, the update is a bit staggered, so it may not come to your device yet and may also take several weeks to come to your device. Yet, you can check for the update manually, but it still won’t help fasten the process. Fortunately, if you still haven’t received the update yet until September 1, you can get it manually. You can also have your T-Mobile G2 updated in a T-Mobile store starting on August 5. However, by getting the update from a T-Mobile store, you will have to backup your data reinstall all previously installed apps, since all of the data will be lost.
The Android 2.3 Gingerbread update brings some new stuffs, including the Google Books, WiFi calling and SMS and email notifications improvements, and an easier way to send an MMS from the Gallery app.
So, if you are one of the T-Mobile G2 users and still haven’t gotten the update yet, you can check it manually.
Aside from the Gingerbread bits, the update for the G2 brings a bunch of new stuff. Google Books has been added, Wi-Fi calling has been improved, as have been notifications for new SMS and email, and sending an MMS from the Gallery app should work better now.
Slowly, but surely, more and more devices are getting updated to Android 2.3 Gingerbread. And that’s good news for Android smartphone owners everywhere. At least it is until Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich gets released towards the end of the year. After that, the waiting game shall be resumed, if you own an Android device that doesn’t have the word Nexus in its name.
