The folks at T-Mobile have sent a Gingerbread update for the MyTouch 4G slide out to a group of “pilot” users today, meaning it’s officially here… sort of. This group of users is very small and a broader rollout won’t begin right away as T-Mobile expects to roll it out to others “in the coming weeks”. What’s more is that they stated rollouts will continue gradually “through the end of the year”. That wouldn’t be a problem if it were December or even November, but it’s not – it’s July. Sounds like some of you have a bit longer to wait, and some of you might even have new phones by the time Gingerbread is delivered. [T-Mobile via TalkAndroid]
