A nice treat. Gingerbread just showed up on my "free" Optimus S phone I received from Sprint when I signed up for a new two year agreement last December.
So until Ice Cream Sandwich comes out, I have the latest phone version of Android. I'm content, for now. In one year, I'm eligible for another phone.
Oddly, the other two Optimus S phones we have, have not yet upgraded.
I am blogging this mainly so if other Optimus S users are searching for information on Gingerbread updates, they will find this and see that the upgrades have begun.
I purchased the phone assuming the worst; that I'd never be upgraded. So I am happy today.
