Can the Android OS of this phone (v2.1 Eclair) be upgraded to Gingerbread?

By the way the upgrade is well worth doing as it makes the phone a lot better to use and the battery seems to last a lot longer (well it did for me anyway) .
Guys, did you manage to update the software to version 5.0.82?

Purchased A10 on 6th Dec and observed that battery can last long provided you disable GPS functioning in the background. If left enabled, it drains yr battery juice. With fair use of voice and GPS my cell is continuing for 27 hours with last recharge.
A10 comes with 1500MAh battery which is extraordinary. Battery of this size is not found even in the best of phones.

Appreciate it. :) Called the local asus support and they said they'll update it to 2.1. I hope there are updates to the phone, otherwise it'll suck to be stuck in 2.1 when the rest of the world moves forward. Thanks again for your help.

As far as I know there shouldn't be any problems for you to update an A10 to that version .
Not sure if there will be any updates to anything newer though :(
Hi all, I've a question. The local store is selling A10 at 60% discount at clearance sale. It was manufactured in October 2010 and runs on android 1.6. My question is, will i be able to upgrade the OS after purchasing? If yes, till which version does the phone support? Thanks for your help guys.

Alan G, 26 Aug 2011From reading other posts on this forum it would seem that the service center here in Australia... moreyes, Alan. You cant expect the same service u get in AUS / US elsewhere in the world.
I got my garmin back yesterday and i am quite happy with the performance. I think i got an upgraded motherboard than the older one i had.
I now know why there can be issues with Garmin A10. It gets HEATED UP rather quickly, damaging the other components as well. In my case, along with mother board, the touch screen and battery got compromised.
So guys, please keep ur garmin under control and keep it cool. Otherwise u will get angry. :).

Its a pity this can't be said for the rest of the world .
Alan G, 24 Aug 2011Rosh what country are you from ??.Bangalore, Karnataka, India.
Just now i checked again, the service guy told, sir 2 more days... It is really a disaster... Still waiting for mother board..
Samsung provides much better servicing. My bro got his mother board replaced and he got back his mob in 3 days..!!!
Hi Guys, I am back again. Now without a A10. It is lying in service center for one month. I gave it last july 26. The complaint was battery getting drained out. Now they have changed battery, touchpad and now mother board. I wonder what these guys have sold me...
I used to say FOR a10, yes it is a very good mobile as per functionality it serves, but whaz the use if it is not ON ?
I recommend Samsung + any GPS unit. They are far better in getting serviced. Why, 'cause Garmin is gonna close their service center soon after 2011. Then if your mobile gets issues, better buy a new one.
