Talk about a long time coming! The LG Optimus Black if finally starting to receive the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update and should hopefully hit all devices soon. Reports are showing that the overdue update has rolled out to folks in Europe and India already, so I imagine other countries will see it soon. The update will bring the Optimus Black up to version 2.3.4 (3 versions behind current Gingerbread), and will bring improved power management, support for new media formats, shortcuts, widgets, better camera auto-focus, and Google+ pre-installed. Word has it that you can get this update right now by using LG’s software update tool, but I cannot confirm this so if somebody is able to force the update let us know.
While it’s pretty late in the game, it’s nice to see that LG really can deliver because if you’ll remember, the Optimus Black was said to receive ICS sometime in Q3 of this year. Any bets on whether or not it shows up on time?
