Android v2.3 Gingerbread is out and the update mess has returned once again. LG was the first to confuse its users about the update, while Samsung is yet to decide the fate of the Galaxy S firmware. All this has already become quite irritating.
It was only yesterday when LG announced on its Facebook page that Optimus One won't be updated to Gingerbread. The reported reason was its lowly 600MHz processor.
Today LG posted a message on their official website that yesterday's info was premature and the fate of the Optimus series is yet to be decided. LG is waiting for the official Gingerbread Compatibility Definition Document and said they will announce their upgrade plans afterwards.
Samsung feels the same way about its best-selling Galaxy S lineup. The company will wait for the official requirements, will do some research how it will affect the overall performance and experience and then will decide to update or not.
In the same time, Samsung India posted a message on its official Twitter account that Galaxy S will get the Gingerbread update. Go figure!
As we said in the beginning - it's a mess - the same one as it was with the Froyo, may be even worse. The final outcome of that buzz is still unknown. But we find it hard to believer that LG and Samsung didn't get all the technical information and preliminary Gingerbread builds in advance. Especially Samsung - after all, it's the manufacturer of Nexus S.

I wish that someone would find out in fact that goggle is behind the galaxy s phones not getting gingerbread. This would be the last android powered phone I ever buy.
Very true, we like that talk *posted from the iphone4 squeezing the bumper case hard into the antenna joint to prove any signal issue talk is all lies.
