It’s been a long time coming, and quite frankly it’s rather sad how long it took for this to come, but the Motorola Milestone 2 has finally received its Gingerbread upgrade. European users of the device have been complaining to Motorola regarding the lack of updates and it seems this book can finally be closed. Things will begin tomorrow and will go out in a staggered process (meaning don’t get too upset if you can’t download it right away when you wake up). We’re glad that’s over. And just to help save you from heartbreak in the future, we’d advise against waiting for Ice Cream Sandwich – something tells us it’s not going to happen. [Motorola Facebook via Droid Dog]
