All AT&T 2011 Smartphones To Receive Android 2.3 Gingerbread

US wireless carrier AT&T has promised to update all the Android powered devices introduced over 2011 to Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

In a press release, the company said that the Motorola Atrix 4G will be first device to get updated to Android 2.3 Gingerbread followed by the HTC Inspire 4G, which will receive the update a couple of weeks later.

Apart from the two Motorla and HTC devices, the LG Phoenix, Pantech Crossover, Samsung Captivate and the Samsung Infuse will all be updated with Android 2.3 Gingerbread - the latest version of Google’s market leading Android mobile operating system.

The company said that the HTC Status, which was launched on July 17th, was the first AT&T device to be launched with Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

“Delivery methods will vary by device. Whenever possible, upgrades are delivered over-the-air (OTA), however in some cases the size of the file needed to install the update will require the user to connect via Wi-Fi or connect the phone to a PC to install the update,” the company said.

“Factors such as manufacturer-defined software and other device performance improvements result in each device requiring a separate update which will vary in timing,” AT&T added.
