t-mobile-lg-g2x

What's this that I have stumbled across this morning? It's none other than some pictures and video footage from This Is My Next of the T-Mobile LG G2x running Gingerbread! No, not a rooted, AOSP version of Gingerbread - it looks to be an official build.

Shortly after the launch of the G2x, T-Mobile said that it would be getting Gingerbread "soon". Of course, we all took that with a grain of salt because, let's be honest here, carriers aren't really the most reliable when it comes to updating their phones. If this video is indeed legit, and I'd like to believe that it is, then it's proof that T-Mo may be a cut above the rest.

It really doesn't offer anything that we haven't seen before as far as Gingerbread in concerned, but it does give a good idea of how close it is to release. Okay, enough of my babble, I know you're ready for some video action.

Looks polished and ready to go, yes? Unfortunately, there's not even a rumor of when this may be sent out to handsets, but we hope that users will start to see it within the month. To add even more of a look-but-don't-touch vibe to the story, this version isn't available to download yet either, so all of you that were hoping to snag this and push it to your phone are out of luck (for now, at least).

    Hopefully this means Kineto has finally ported the Wi-Fi Calling app to Gingerbread!

    For a moment I thought this article said Gingerbread for the T-Mobile G2. You guys are monsters ಠ_ಠ

  • Khanh

    For a sec I thought you guys have this for download... :/

  • Paul

    Yeah. This G2x stuff is going to confuse me being a G2 owner. The G2x is too dissimilar to the G2 to even have the G2x name.

    • Firehawk

      You're right, the G2x is much better and deserves the G3 name.

      • Adam

        Without a keyboard? Not really. The G2 and G1 are defined by their awesome keyboards. G2X is a pointless brand name.

    I thought it said G2 for a moment. I was about to go jump on my roof then I started reading....Killjoy. :( :( :(
