LG Optimus Gingerbread Update; ‘Will Evaluate’ Says LG

December 9, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Vigilance always pays well, especially in the gadget world. Following our report regarding LG falsely claiming its Optimus series incapable of receiving Gingerbread and similar reports from the blogosphere, LG pulled back from its stand with an official apology for creating the confusion.

Yesterday, LG stirred a hornet’s nest when an official posting on LG’s Facebook page claimed that the devices in its Optimus lineup won’t get a Gingerbread update, falsely claiming such an update need at least a 1 GHz processor. This was refuted by the Google techies themselves.

After one day, the company seems to be running itself on the damage control mode. The official note however does not confirm if the Optimus series will get a Gingerbread update.

Instead, the note says LG will confirm the availability of such an update only after Google publishes the Gingerbread Compatibility Definition Document or the public branch open source code. The company says once the CDD is published, it will check for the upgradability of the Optimus Series.

Well, get the story the right way – it didn’t take back the word completely. The company just told you to wait. However, we hope it won’t come out with just another reason to block the devices in the Optimus series getting their share of Gingerbread.
