T-Mobile G2x

The T-Mobile G2x certainly has a lot going for it, like a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, T-Mo 4G, a 4-inch display, and a mostly-stock build of Android. One thingĀ  it's lacking, however, is the latest build of Android, version 2.3. Luckily for all you proud G2x owners out there, that won't be the case for much longer, as T-Mobile has confirmed via its Twitter account that the handset's Gingerbread update is coming "soon." Magenta didn't get any more specific than that when it comes to the actual release date, but it did promise that we "won't have to wait long."

Although most folks were pretty excited to see that G2x features a nearly vanilla build of Android, many thought it was strange that it was running Froyo instead of Gingerbread, especially since it's a flagship device for both LG and T-Mobile. Now that we know an update to 2.3 is coming "soon," though, the G2x may be even more enticing to potential buyers. Of course, we don't know exactly how long "soon" is to T-Mobile, but we'll be sure to let you know when we find out more.
