The Inquirer has heard it from LG that the Optimus 3D in the UK won’t get its Gingerbread upgrade in October. The phone launched with Froyo even though thelatest major revision of Android for phones has been out for quite a while now. You can imagine our disappointment when hearing that we won’t be seeing it for at least another three months. To make matters worse, history tells us that updates in other regions could come even later than the UK rollout.
The only bit of solace to take from this news is that the upgrade is apparently complicated due to LG’s desire to add new 3D features that’ll convert 2D apps and games to 3D on the fly. Sounds pretty cool and might be worth the wait considering the lack of 3D content available to those of us with these types of devices. Anyway, we’re still a long way off so hang in there.
