Finally! The long awaited Gingerbread update for both the Droid Incredible and ThunderBolt will be hitting the airwaves in September, according to HTC's official Twitter.

2011-08-31 15h46_34

While several leaked Android 2.3.x builds for each device have surfaced over the past few months, none of them were deemed good enough to achieve "official" status, so it's good to know that HTC has finally put the finishing touches on each.

No solid date has been set, so just know that your waiting will finally come to an end within the next few weeks.

    I'll believe it when I see it. So I doubt it. I know I am posting this a few days before the end of the month but I didn't believe it when I first saw this the first day or so in sept.

    It's October 1st, or Q4, where is the update? What do you know, another delayed release of updated firmware. Maybe I'll re-root it again. Guess I shouldn't hold my breath
