    I've read on this forum 2.1 release due in July 2010 - Android @ MoDaCo that the GT540 will get the 2.1 upgrade on September 14th, but obviously this isn't official so we're just gonna have to wait until that date and see what happens :D

    Hi all ! (sorry for my english...)

    Androidplanet.nl has recently published an article dated Sept 22, saying that LG officially announced a 2.1 upgrade for GT540 cellphones before the end of the year !

    I googled the web to find any official information from LG, as said in the article, with no results at all. Besides, I'm still waiting for an answer since I posted a comment to the journalist on Androidplanet.nl.

    The information looks credible, even though it comes after many other promises of that kind, with no effects at all.

    Here is the link to the article (use a NL > EN online translator) :
    LG GT540 en GW620 krijgen binnenkort update - Android - Androidplanet.nl

    Has anyone been told about such an annoucement from LG ?

    Best regards.

    But i find it hard to believe it was only released here. There must be several other countries that got it. I am sorry to hear that though, i know how annoying it is.
