Will My Phone Get Android 2.3 Gingerbread? [Plus an Early Dose of Neue Forum Goodness]

So I suppose you've come to this post wishing for the truth, the hard truth, on your phone and its future as far as a lovely holiday cookie goes. I'll tell you what - you'll basically get the truth below, but unless we could call ourselves the developers working on optimizing Android versions for each piece of hardware, we've got no perfect truth for you. That said, this is pretty good. This list was originally compiled by an awesome fellow by the name of Ben Duder over on XDA Developers. What we're using it for here is to do three things, the first of which is to give you the good news.

Some of these phones you'll already know about, like the Nexus S, a phone that's famously the first to have Gingerbread and remains to this day one of the only phones to have updates to it. After that there's the Nexus One, a slew of phones that'll launch with Gingerbread aboard, phones that will more than likely get an update, and a small list of phones that will MAYBE get an update.

What we've added here are links to both old and BRAND NEW forums we've been working on, some of which are currently completely empty! What we encourage you to do, if you're a super amazing, super kind person, is to check these new forums out, write a little something up if you feel so inclined, and tell us what other forums we should add - tell us what we're missing!

Phones which are currently upgradeable to Gingerbread:
Google Nexus One

Phones which will launch with Gingerbread:
Samsung Galaxy S II
HTC Desire S
