LG Optimus S Sprint

Hey LG Optimus S owners, how does a warm serving of Gingerbread sound? That's precisely what you're getting starting today, as Sprint has announced that the Android 2.3 update for the Optimus S is now rolling out in stages. The update is build number LS670ZVH and is expected to make its way to each and every Optimus S within the next 10 days. Once the new software makes it to your neck of the woods, you'll find the following improvements:

  • Volume adjustment from handset when backlight is off and in a Bluetooth call
  • Initiation of a 3-way call in certain markets
  • Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
    • Updated color scheme (includes darker notification bar and black-based menus)  
    • New on-screen keyboard (supports multi-touch input and a smart auto-correction function)
    • Improved cut-paste functionality
    • New integrated download application for ease in accessing downloaded files
    • Updated camera application
    • Power management and task killer applications

Sounds like a pretty tasty treat to me. If you'd like to check and see if the update is available for your handset, go to Menu > Settings > About phone> System Updates. Optimus S owners, be sure to give us a shout when you get the new software up and running. We'll be here waiting with bated breath.
