It seems like it was just yesterday when I mentioned that LG should tend to the Revolution's lack of Gingerbread, and here it is. Verizon just updated the Revolution's support documentation with all the details of the upcoming update, which includes Android 2.3.x.
The update offers little outside of the bump up to Android 2.3.x (which is a wonderful upgrade in itself), but it does bring a few fixes dealing with Email and messaging, as well as a handful of general device enhancements.
The update should start rolling out today and be complete by mid-next week. Enjoy, Revolution owners!

On October 20th, VZW will be turning on LTE coverage in 20 new markets, and this morning, an announcement was sent out with details of 13 new cities that will be added to the mix on November 17th:
- Little Rock, AR
- Savannah, GA
- Cedar Rapids and Des Moines, IA
- Lexington, KY
- Kansas City and Springfield, MO
- Lincoln, NE
- Orange County, NY
- Greater Providence, Rapid City, SD
- Roanoke, VA
- Appleton, WS
It's clear that Big Red has no intentions of slowing down until it blankets the entire country with super-fast LTE, and at the rate it's going, that day will probably be pretty soon.
