The HTC "Thunderbolt" and "EVO 4G" finally getting Android Gingerbread update?

HTC Thunderbolt and EVO 4G smartphones might get upgraded towards the Android 2.3 “Gingerbread” operating-system by no later compared to end of June, based on a TalkAndroid reader who submitted a note allegedly from an HTC representative.

Despite bountiful company resources, both device manufacturers like HTC and wireless carriers happen to be dragging their feet with regards to upgrading their devices towards the latest OS, that has been readily available for nearly 6 months.

Meanwhile, the hacker community has were able to push unofficial Gingerbread upgrades towards the most of smartphone's running older versions of Android natively. The only real device that officially runs Gingerbread right now is Samsung’s Nexus S, that was produced in partnership with Google to operate a pure version from the OS with no carrier alterations.

Justifiably, Android phone owners are pissed off how the updates aren’t coming any faster.

Unlike older versions from the iPhone, most Android phones have sufficient hardware requirements to aid timely OS updates. However, upgrading to Gingerbread isn’t great for tha harsh truth of either the carriers or hardware manufacturers, who does rather you purchase newer devices featuring Gingerbread rather than obtaining the update free of charge.
