Gingerbread coming for the Thunderbolt

Posted in HTC by Conner Flynn on June 26th, 2011

HTC had said back in March that we’d have Gingerbread (Android 2.3) on the Thunderbolt in Q2, however that time frame is drawing to a close. Well, what we have learned is that an HTC rep has confirmed that the next update for the Thunderbolt won’t just fix the reboot issues, but it will also update the phone to Gingerbread.

We may not have a date, but this is better than no news at all right? Keep your fingers crossed. Q2 only has a few days left. Maybe they will keep their word.

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on May 16th, 2011

The update was supposed to have a mid-April delivery, but Samsung ran into some problems and is now ready to attempt to deliver Gingerbread again. The company has officially stated that it intends to update the entire Galaxy S line, starting with models in the UK and Nordic countries from the middle of this month.

The rest of the globe, including us yanks in North America, will follow “according to the regional plan.” So who else is getting a Gingerbread upgrade? Why, the 7-inch Galaxy Tab and the company’s budget Galaxy devices too, the Ace, Gio, Fit and mini.

LG Optimus 2X to get Gingerbread in mid-2011

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on April 14th, 2011

LG has said that Gingerbread will be forthcoming for its dual-core Optimus 2X Android handset, but aside from that they have been pretty quiet on the issue. Now we have word from LG’s Danish support site that the P990 (aka the 2X) will be updated to Android 2.3 “in June-July 2011.”

That’s later than we were all hoping for, but still, better late than never. Though it should be noted that LG has a history of inconsistency when it comes to software roadmaps, so we will see if they hold to that timeframe.

Gingerbread Star Trek Enterprise

Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on December 21st, 2009

Tis the season for all manner of geeky desserts. We’ve seen our share around here, whether they be Star Wars or Star Trek. All are delicious if not nutritious.

Here we have the Star Trek Enterprise made of gingerbread. Apparently it lacks the necessary propulsion to keep it upright and so is kept afloat by several glasses beneath. I would love to take the first bite and cause a hull breach.
