Got an email form LG today ( 24th May 2011 ).

My question was : Will the soon to be released update for the LGP500 ( Optimus One ) be an update to Android 2.3.4 ?

This is the reply .....

Dear Customer,
Thank you for your e-mail.
There are currently no plans to further update the P500 past Android 2.2 at this point. We recommend sporadically checking the LG blog at www.lgblog.com. This is where we will first show any information regarding further updating our handsets.
We hope this information has been useful to you, if you have any further queries please feel free to contact ourselves again via e-mail or on 0844 8475454.
Best Regards,
LG Electronics UK Helpdesk

Hi friends, I've updated my LG-P500 phone last night following the instructions shown here - http://www.lg.com/sg/support/mc-support/mobile-p­hone-support.jsp

But after updating, it's showing that the android version has been updated to 2.2.1 but not 2.3 :(

Does anyone have idea on how to update it to android 2.3?

Sorry. The www in my earlier posting has some problem.

LG has succumbed and agreed to LG Op1 P500 supporters' pressure for upgrade to OS A2.3 Gingerbread finally. LG is still optimistic about its users and its future potential share of the market. Please see the report below for more info.
