LG Optimus Black Gets Android Gingerbread Update

The much awaited Android 2.3 Gingerbread update has been rolled out to the users of LG Optimus Black. The update is only available in India at present, and select few regions in Europe. It's just a matter of time though untill the update is rolled out to other markets, as well.

The update has hit the massively popular Optimus Black at a time when most of the rival products within its range are being fed with Ice Cream Sandwich - the latest avatar of Google's flagship mobile OS platform Android.

With this new update, Optimus Black will now be running on the Android 2.3.4 - no doubt a little out-dated - but nonetheless, still much better than Android 2.2 Froyo.

The update has been accompanied by a decent range of bug fixes and feature enhancements such as active app management, widgets, shortcuts, camera geo-tagging ability, updated calendar, icons, app groups, a better camera auto focus capability and many more.

Beyond this, LG also claims that the new update will facilitate a better power management, as well as compatibility with a wider range of audio file formats including AAC, H.263 AVC and MPEG 4.
