She might have launcher pro + installed, where you can alter widget sizes. That's just a home launcher specific feature. Unless the system version is 2.3.x, it's not gingerbread.
I personally don't think this or the Moto Pro will get gingerbread. There's not a whole lot they would gain from it. Although, they could just push it out late. This and the pro aren't exactly in their top-advertised lineup.
