    Since the specs for Gingerbread are higher than what the D1 has, I doubt there will be an OTA update for it, but that doesn't mean there won't be a rom. I hope to see some custom roms for the DX with it.

    Where have you seen the "requirements" for Gingerbread?
    I've seen rumours about what is recommended......

    It probably won't get an official Gingerbread release, but there are not going to be "required" specs...

    There is NO way that the G2 will not get Gingerbread, and it is 800mhz... soooooo, that tells me those rumoured requirements are bull doo-doo.

    Just as a couple quick thoughts here, their were some "rumors" that basically said that tablets might get their own flavor of android. Maybe Gingerbread is that flavor? But this is speculation, and as a rebuttle to my statement, i dont see many tablets that even come close to those "recommended" specs... (only a couple really...) Who knows, guess we will wait and see. Maybe all the popular companies have been waiting for google to come out with it before they release their own tablets?
    Turtle bit me.I thought they were slow....they snap so fast. ................. <3

    I could see the Droid 1 not getting Gingerbread if it was still being called 3.0, but the fact that it's now 2.3 makes me think it's more of an upgrade closer from Froyo as opposed to a truly new version with higher specs.

    I mean, the Nexus One is getting Gingerbread. Why not the Droid 1?

    Only interested in 2.3 on my D1 if it restores the speed and responsiveness that was lost with the 2.2 release. I'd like to go back to 2.1.

    if what i read is correct....its because they say they want gingerbread to run on speedier processors. 800mhz+

    Also, because the nexus one is more of a developer phone ...its like their testing phone

    Does that mean I can finally root my D1 and not worry about blocking updates to it?

    if you were rooted, you could ALWAYS get the latest version of android before it would be pushed to the phone...not even sure why you wouldn't root now.

    there is one thing about 2.2 that i hate, and that is the home screen redraws. i (and many others) have tried to fix this issue to no avail. tried the terminal fix, tried compcache fix, different launchers...nothing fixed it. it is better than before, but not perfect.
    2.1 was great about this...something i didn't even think about on 2.1....but now with 2.2 i have to worry about it every time i hit the home button. this looks bad for the android OS. i almost feel ashamed to show my friends 2.2 because of this.

    Which is why I hope they wait until Honeycomb to bump up the minimum specs. I hate the homescreen lag and I feel like we deserve a fix. Since we haven't heard any details about specs, anything could happen.

    If we don't get an update, I think I might finally root.
