LG Revolution Verizon

Hey LG Revolution owners, remember that Gingerbread update that we told you about a few days ago? Yeah, it's now rolling out. Verizon pinged us this morning to let us know that the 87.8MB update is now available and can be downloaded by going to Menu > Settings > About Phone > Software Update > Check New. If you're curious about just what kinds of goodies that this new software includes, you can find the full changelog below.

The Revolution's Android 2.3 update may have taken a tad longer to arrive than I'm sure many owners of the device would've preferred, but hey, all that matters now is that it's here and that we get to admit another device to Club Gingerbread. As usual, once you Revolution folk get the new software up and running on your handset, we'd love to hear how it's working out for you. Let us know below!
