It won't get gingerbread, ever. But from all reports gingerbread isn't much of a step up from froyo (which is an excellent OS as it is anyway) and frankly for this price you really can't be upset about "only" having froyo.
Digo, 04 Dec 2010Can this be used to synch with outlook contacts?yes it can sync w/ outlook
Guyz, Seeing the hardware 512mb ram and 600hz processor ,i dont think this phone will get the ginderbread android 3.0 version update as that version requires much more high configuration.There are many phone out there such as galaxy S,xperia X10 which are only expected to get gingerbread,i think Samsung Galaxy will be better than this phone also less priced than abt Rs1500.And same features.Just because it has froyo doesnt mean it very good even galaxy 3 is expected to get froyo so dont be in hurry
kolkata , 03 Dec 2010can it be upgraded to android 2.3 ? pls reply asap yes it will... just follow LG's news closely and it will come eventually...

I actually can't believe the only froyo-running phone in this price-range hasn't been reviewed yet despite being available for over a month. Instead GSM have wasted their time reviewing WP7 handsets (which nobody has any intention of buying) which inevitably end in the conclusion that all WP7 phones are the same and that the platform is too restricted.
Seriously, review this phone already.
@LG optimus one users:can you guys comment about the gaming experience of the phone?does is lags/hangs when playing 3D games?
Don't want to be nam, 20 Nov 2010PLease wait for 5 - 6 months. There's gonna be huge change in the mobile phone market. I"... moreare u trying to create a confusion among the prospective buyers of optimus one?
but remember one thing! these types of postings will also affect the sales of ur companies present day models !
also, if what u wrote is true, then all those can be only high end phones. hence no need to compare those future devices with these phones. . .
kolkata , 03 Dec 2010can it be upgraded to android 2.3 ? pls reply asap can u plz tell me that optimus p500 is upgradable to android 2.2 to 2.3 ???? i m so confuse !!!!
Global, 03 Dec 2010No. None of the 600MHz processor phones would be able to upgrade to Android 2.3it means optimus p500 is not upgradable to android 2.2 to android 2.3 ????
guys i am from India.. I would like to buy this phone.. Does this phone support flash 10.1??I've read many reviews about it.All pointing that it doesn't have flash support..but when i checked the LG's official site they are quoting that it has flash 10.1 support and also its written on its package.. I am confused.. so anybody could confirm this??
check this video also.. its about the flash 10.1 support for the Indian edition..thanks.. waiting for your confirmation
Univercell's site lists the LG P500 as "Thunder" instead of "Optimus One". Is LG selling this in India with this name?
