    HTC Thunderbolt and EVO 4G Finally Getting Android Gingerbread Update?

    By TOM CHEREDAR of VentureBeat, April 12, 2011

    HTC Thunderbolt and EVO 4G Finally Getting Android Gingerbread Update? - NYTimes.com

    The HTC Thunderbolt and EVO 4G smart phones could get upgraded to the Android 2.3 “Gingerbread” operating system by no later than the end of June, according to a TalkAndroid reader who sent in a message allegedly from an HTC rep.

    Despite bountiful company resources, both device manufacturers like HTC and wireless carriers have been dragging their feet when it comes to upgrading their devices to the latest OS, which has been available for nearly six months.

    Meanwhile, the hacker community has managed to push unofficial Gingerbread upgrades to the majority of smart phones running older versions of Android natively. The only device that officially runs Gingerbread at the moment is Samsung’s Nexus S, which was made in partnership with Google to run a pure version of the OS without any carrier alterations.

    Justifiably, Android phone owners are ****ed off that the updates aren’t coming any faster.

    Unlike older versions of the iPhone, most Android phones have sufficient hardware requirements to support timely OS updates. However, upgrading to Gingerbread isn’t good for the bottom line of either the carriers or hardware manufacturers, who would rather you buy newer devices featuring Gingerbread instead of getting the update for free.

    Good news...i don't think the news should be titled with a "FINALLY"....there are a total of what...1 phone with gingerbread on the market?

    Just because its ready via google doesn't mean that it has to be out the next week. If you need it that fast honestly, just get a nexus device.

    Most people can wait however...those who can't, root and Cynogen their phone.

    Furthermore...I don't think Android users are ****ed off they don't have gingerbread. I would be ****ed off if I didn't have Froyo though.
