LG Optimus One Android Gingerbread update declined

LG claims hardware restrictions prevent FroYo phone from getting Gingerbread one, Google suggests to differ.

Just 48 hours after its debut, the rollout of Android Gingerbread has already been beginning to cause issues for Google. Using a Nexus One update still “a few weeks” away according to one dev, now LG has stepped in and said its Optimus One won’t to have to make the move to Android 2.3.

The reason why? It says Gingerbread needs a minimum 1GHz processor, and also the Optimus One has a 600MHz number inside. Based on LG’s official Facebook page in the united states, “…it’s impossible to update the processor, unfortunately”.

Except, it appears, LG’s fibbing. Android boss Dan Morrill accepted Twitter using this barbed comment: “Random note: there’s no hard minimum processor desire for Gingerbread. Trust me, if there were I’d know”. Ouch.
So, it appears, the problems mobile makers experienced with getting Android FroYo onto old devices looks set to keep with Gingerbread. Is Google releasing so many updates? Or do handset mavens have to get their act together?
