    anything you will hear will be a rumor. p3droid said he might be able to get his hands on one around the same time that the dx gb got leaked. it's a total guessing game right now.

    My guess is tomorrow, but maybe the day after or 6 months from now. Maybe never, but these are just guesses. You would probably be better off getting a new phone with it preloaded. Keep guessing cause your guess is as good as mine.

    Exactly. Honestly I could throw a date out there but the original date I guessed for gb on the x/2 is about two months past so its all up in the air.

    Just search. Theres already several thread around here on the matter, each containing speculations of release dates. Bottom line we can guess all we want, but unless you work for moto some how, then we dont know an official release. I would just sit back and enjoy Liberty or something on your D2G. As much as I wouldnt mind gingerbread, I am not aware of anything that is going to offer drastic changes to the phone outside of a bit of a performance increase. However if you ha Liberty, it would be a step down to go to an official D2G GB rom.

    mostly true except it is in verizon's hands mostly. word on the street is moto has presented finished gingerbread updates for their current line of phones that verizon has turned down. that's why there are three versions of gingerbread for the droid x floating around.

    The last I read about the DX is it won't get GB 2.3.3 until the DX2 get's it so that could be months longer still.

    Shouldnt be that long because the X2 is being released in a week or so I believe. I think it should also come with Gingerbread. So if that's the case, it shouldnt be that long.

    EDIT: I didnt do all the research before posting. I just looked at the specs for the X2 and it is gonna come with 2.2 and it said it will be upgraded to gingerbread at a date to be later determined. So.... looks like its still pretty much wide open when we will get it.

    I like how we keep seeing stuff about Gingerbread for DX in a D2G forum section in threads titled “Gingerbread for D2G” and the like.

    Every time there's an update for such a thread I think “oh, must be news on 2.3 for D2G” yet it's DX again. What is this I don't even.

    DX2 is available today online and at BestBuy and non VZW shops (I've heard) so hopefully not too much longer!
