    You must've gotten a response from someone who isn't very informed about the situation. LG has promised a Gingerbread update for this model several times

    well - i sent it in via the LG website and i got the above reply from Peter Morton, whoever he is

    i then sent in another email asking how they could not put 2.3 on the P500 despite their promises on facebook and other places and have not heard back - hence the post

    maybe someone else who knows more than me could confirm or deny this from LG?

    You should probably post him the official statement LG made last year about Gingerbread, and see what they say. Sometimes the different departments do not communicate with each other much, and this is why you might get a no from AU, yes in Japan, and maybe in US. lol

    On LG's official Italian facebook page it says this: Hello, we confirm that the upgrade to Gingerbread Optimus One is in progress. We will keep you informed on any news. See you soon!

    I assume they're trying to figure out how to do this. Gingerbread is supposed to come with flash support, but our model isn't fast enough for flash. In other hand you have people who want the update with or without flash, and in other you will get complains from people who expected flash with the update, as Android promised. I suppose they might give us somekind of "lite" version of it.

    i think the 2.3 is out.. or not? i updated to 2.2.1 in December or January and 2 days ago i got a message that there is a new update available but when i tried to update i got an error (connection lost or something) and my phone didn't powered on so i toke it to a service. when i will get it back I'll post the version of android they installed (they seas that they will install the last version available).

    sorry for my bad English, I'm correcting some words with the browser dictionary.
