Rumor: Samsung’s Droid Charge Could Be Getting Gingerbread After All

November 6, 2011

As far as rumors go, this one would definitely takes the cake. I personally have been hoping for the arrival of Gingerbread to my very own Droid Charge. I often tweet and check Samsung’s official Twitter account to find out if there was any possible chance that Gingerbread was going to come to the Charge smartphone. Often enough though, Samsung has stated that if and when Gingerbread will be coming to the Droid Charge, they will be sure to let everyone know. Unfortunately, I have had to endure the pain and suffering of constant jeers from my own cohort in crime MrCapcomDS. That is until he sent me a tweet I somehow missed early on friday. The tweet was from fellow android enthusiast P3Droid, a writer from MyDroidWorld, who has had some pretty insightful information in regards to the Droid Charge. He has provided links and leaks to everything that has come the Droid Charge’s way. This is what he tweeted about the Droid Charge and the possibility of it getting the official Gingerbread update.

Makes you wonder if this is actually something legit right? It wouldn’t be that far off to think that an official build could have been sent over to Verizon. Remember the Droid Charge is only a few months old. While that doesn’t guarantee that the device will get the update, especially with the rather poor updating Samsung has done in the past with its other devices (*cough the Vibrant *cough), it is a good notion that the update could be in the works and could be received sooner than later. One things for sure, if Sammie and Verizon can get this to work, they would be appeasing the opinion of a lot of Samsung Droid Charge users that have had a rather sour taste in their mouth while waiting for updates to come to their phones.

    agreed, but when talking with a rep from Samsung, we should be checking samsung’s support website for updates:
    http://www.samsung.com/us/support/downloads/verizon-wireless/SCH-I510RAAVZW

    also, below is the VZW update page:
    http://support.verizonwireless.com/system_update/charge.html

    one of these two websites will be our first indication that an official release will be forthcoming.

      Alright cool. Thanks for the tips dude. Definitely going to save these. I hope the Charge does continue to get updated from Sammy and Big Red. I hate the fact that they release devices and then they get abandoned only a few months afterwards
