Android 2.3 Gingerbread Release for Galaxy Tab, Vibrant, Incredible S, Desire Z, ATRIX

July 7, 2011

You're gonna love this - a leak has come through on Bell for the update dates (in general) for Android 2.3 Gingerbread for the following devices: Samsung Galaxy Tab (original), Samsung Galaxy S (Vibrant), HTC Incredible S, HTC Desire Z, and Motorola ATRIX. Each of these devices will be upgraded to the newest Android system in turn, all of them coming out inside the next few months this summer, 2011. Would you like to know more? Heck yes, cookies!

This sort of leak isn't always to be believe 100%, but when we're talking leaks of this magnitude and coming straight from mobilesyrup, our favorite Canadian blog for Android, it's pretty much the real deal. That said, here we go on our upgrade adventure: Android 2.3 Gingerbread, the newest handset-based upgrade for the Google Mobile OS (one before Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, that is,) will be coming to the following Bell-based devices this summer at the following times:

First the Samsung Galaxy Tab will be coming out on July 7th, 2011 (why, that's today!), Next the Samsung Galaxy S, aka the Vibrant here, will be coming "early summer." This will be followed in mid-summer by the HTC Incredible S, our favorite little cutie, and the HTC Desire Z and Motorola ATRIX sometime "late summer," each of these dates being just as general as you can guess. Hooray!

    PLEASE tell me that the Galaxy Tab update INCLUDES the Wi-Fi model, because I own that and it bothers me so much that Samsung seems to have forgotten about this model!

      Will more than likely be through Kies. That’s how I updated to FROYO.
