Although it's only been 1 day since Google announced the new Android OS, there are still many questions we have. When and what phones will get the upgrade? I'm sure we'll start getting the official responses from Verizon, Motorola, HTC, and Samsung over the next few months. Although it hasn't been confirmed, we believe the Droid 2, Droid Pro, Droid X, HTC Incredible, Samsung Vibrant will handle this update without a hiccup, however what about the Droid that started it all? LG made a statement today that might have Droid users feeling like the end of the road is near. LG responded to a user inquiring about his LG Optimus S and the possibility of an upgrade to Gingerbread with:
We've reached out to our sources and they claim that the D1 will eventually receive this update even though the processor speed is inline with the Optimus. Only time will tell!So, the Optimus line won't be getting the Gingerbread update because they have a 600MHz processor,and the minimum requirements for Gingerbread require 1 GHz processor. In other words: it's not possible to update the processor, unfortunately.
