Will your Android Phone Get Gingerbread?

    No doubt if you own an Android phone, or are thinking of getting one, one of the prevailing questions you might have is “will my phone get the latest version of Android, will I get Gingerbread?” Currently, there are only two handsets officially (a few others hacked of course) running 2.3. These are the Nexus S and the Nexus One. Of course, if you’ve done your due diligence, and rooted your phone, then  you can hit up a Cyanogenmod 7 release candidate (which we highly recommend) and experience Gingerbread right now. However, if you’re not the rooting type, and would prefer for a more official release, then check out our comprehensive list below.

    Thankfully, the list has kept growing ever since Gingerbread was officially announced. More and more carriers, it would seem, are eager to provide the latest and greatest iteration of Android on their hardware, which is a great thing for everyone.

    Also, big cheers to JR Raphael for doing the hard work!

    Is having  the latest version of Android on your phone important to you? Any we missed?

      Uh..

      Nexus One didn’t ship with Gingerbread, and the Atrix/Thunderbolt updates aren’t available yet.

      Where are you getting this crap from?

      Um, pretty sure the Xperia X10 Mini and Mini Pro won’t be getting a Gingerbread upgrade. Sony said so themselves when they announced the upgrade for the X10: http://blogs.sonyericsson.com/products/2011/03/25/update-on-xperia%E2%84%A2-x10/
      It’s addressed near the bottom of the FAQ

      The Xperia x10 mini and mini pro wont get gingerbread officialy from SE.
      Check out the SE blog for more info.

      “Will the xperia mini & mini pro recive the gingerbread update aswell?”
      ” – No, we have no such plans for the future.”

      However, the X10 and X8 SE device will recive 2.3.3 during Q2 or Q3 2011.

      So please correct this.
