    Does anyone have a release date for when we will see Gingerbread on the Atrix? It looks amazing from what I've seen.

    Also, what is new in Gingerbread?

    Does this apply to ATT only? or is the Canadian Bell atrix included in this?

    Lol I'm expecting a Bell update closer to the end of the year. Bell is not so good with updates.

    Bell has not even released a single update yet! I won't be holding my breath. GB will be the third update that AT&T Atrix will be getting.
    Very true...Bell SGS Vibrant is still on 2.1 >_>;; All of the SGS phones in Canada (Telus/Rogers) got 2.2 last year!

    If the Nexus 3 (or 4G) lives up to the rumors when it comes out, I'll be switching to that.

    That, and I'm still waiting to hear that Hulu+ has an Android app. As soon as it exists, I'm signing up. I'm hoping that Android + Netflix + Hulu+ >= Cable, so I can ditch the cable.

    Yeah, really. Amazon Appstore for Android - Coming Soon to AT&T Phones is becoming more useless every day. It's been static for months. No communication at all from Motorola and AT&T = piss poor public relations. Throwing up a website on the Appstore fiasco isn't enough guys. Be a bit more transparent. That's what customers want.

    If this is true please explain what you've done.



    To all others I suggest you go here and see that they are saying GB hasn't even officially been promised to us:


    https://supportforums.motorola.com/message/407317#407317

    I would ask everyone to get friends and family and bombard Motorola, ATT, on their Facebook and Twitter pages and on the forum I listed above demanding GB right away, or at the very least demanding a quick and dirty sideloading patch.

    What do you all say?

    install this apk file via sideloading(do a google search for sideload wonder machine). This works just fine on my Atrix.

    Going back to the ORIGIONAL topic in the OP.. So far there isnt a specific date given. But moto made an official statement a little while back that confirmed june-july for release. We have recently seen 2.3.3 and 2.3.4 beta builds floating around.

    Ken from briefmobile has a source from moto and says that we will be going right to 2.3.4 and "verrry soon". Kohlk is running 2.3.4 on his Dev Atrix right now and says its very fast and stable and is disecting it for future purposes. There is also rumor in the Dev community that the boot loader MIGHT be getting unlocked with the next update. Which is feasable since HTC and Samsung have decided to scrap locked BLs... preasure is on moto to follow.

    I'd be surprised if we didnt have it by mid july, at least on AT&T

    aww... don't tell me Netflix cannot be downloaded to Atrix...
    I'm planning to get an Atrix... although I may not be streaming too much from Netflix :D - but it'd be nice to have it on the phone.

    with sideloading enabled, one can easily get Netflix on their phone.
