LG delivers Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for Optimus 3D smartphone
You know, back in the early days of mobile phones, we did not need to worry about a software update at all. All we looked forward to was a new phone, and back then, giants like Motorola and Nokia rolled out their phones in a rather sparing manner – perhaps a couple of phones each quarter here and there, and there will only be a massive “update” so to speak from time to time, perhaps once a year. I still remember the stir that the Nokia 8250 caused when it was released, asking us to “walk on the blue side” – after that, there were plenty of third party mods for different Nokia handsets that featured colored LEDs inside the display to emulate the blue shade of the Nokia 8250.
Fast forward to today, and you get tons of phones being rolled out on an almost weekly basis, not to mention having to grapple with this issue known as software updates. Yes, LG’s 3D effort with the aptly named Optimus 3D will finally be getting the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update, where apart from the goodies that Google has packed into this version of their mobile operating system, so too, will LG include their fair share of changes and enhancements. We will look into those in greater detail after the jump.
To put it in a nutshell, you will be able to enjoy enhanced network speed, a better 3D experience and improved multimedia functions with this latest Android 2.3 Gingerbread update. LG’s customized version of this update will also deliver an enriched 3D experience, thanks to the inclusion of the 3D Video Editor and Full-screen UI Preview so that you can create and modify 3D as well as 2D movies right there and then with the Optimus 3D – without the need to transfer videos to a computer and painstakingly making edits back home.
As for the preview screen, it will end up wider with a transparent UI, so that you are better able to capture superior quality 3D content. This new upgrade will also bring along with it improved video recording and longer MP3 playback time just in case you are a song buff. Europe will be on the receiving end of this update first before the rest of the world follows after November 21st.
