LG Thrill

AT&T’s LG Thrill gets an update – to Android 2.3

The HTC Vivid has Ice Cream Sandwich! Ten other phones and tablets are getting it too! It's like software updates are eggs and AT&T's the Easter bunny! The latest bit of news is that the LG Thrill is getting an update - too bad it's just Gingerbread. Yes, the forlorn high-end phone has been running Froyo officially all this time, and now (a mere 15 months after Gingerbread became available and almost a year to the day after the phone was announced) it's finally getting an update to Android 2.3. Thrill owners, try to contain your joy - this has got to be like being the one kid who found his egg rotten.

It’s the middle of July and tech news this week has been rock steady! Lets start off by saying that Google+ is now available for international users; and at this point it seems that all Google+ is missing compared to other social platforms is a wider userbase. In other Google news, their new project “Google Offers (Beta)” launched in NYC Tuesday. Think of this service as a way to save money with many different local businesses on a daily basis. This past Monday evening, HTC released information that the bootloaders of some of their more recent devices will be unlocked in the coming months of August and September. Some of their devices have already been unlocked over at XDA Developers, but I’m sure many have been awaiting an official fix.
