AT&T to Provide Gingerbread Update to 2011 Mobile Lineup

AT&T reported some fantastic news today regarding the Android 2.3 OS platform, otherwise known as Gingerbread.  They will be rolling out updates for all of their 2011 Android devices.

The process will take several months to complete.  Updates for various devices may be released at different points from one another–intended to limit confusion.

Currently, the only Android phone on the market that is equipped with Gingerbread is the HTC Status.  The first Android model to get the update is the Motorola Atrix 4G.  That should occur relatively soon.  AT&T’s Android 2011 lineup also includes the Pantech Crossover, LG Phoenix, and the Samsung Infuse 4G.  All of these models will be eligible for the update.

Additionally, in order to download the Gingerbread to 2011 AT&T mobile devices, users will have to be connected via WiFi.  Only when connected to WiFi can users download the update, so make sure to find a cozy spot, maybe even one of the thousands of free WiFi locations AT&T offers nationwide, and prepare yourself for the enjoyment the next installment of the Android OS can provide.

The Gingerbread has been a highly anticipated platform.  Some highlights include easier navigation for users with an improved interface and ton of new features.  Android can expect their smartphone dominance to only continue with the complete roll-out of the 2.3 OS.
