Nope.......been hammering AT&T and LG with no luck. Mum's the word I guess.

When the New Nexus comes out, this phone will just be more of a novelty item at that point for the 3D ability (for me). I'm sick of waiting on Vendors and Carriers to release updates.

This topic is getting so old already. Everybody wants what they want when they want it and it doesnt work like that unless you are willing to develope Gingerbread for your Thrill on your own. This device just came out September 4, so it is a new device. Owners of this powerful phone should feel good about the SPECS of it and the soon to come dev support. We have dev support now but very little. Trust me when I say that we will get all we need and then some once this device is fully studied by different devs. Remember that the phone is just over a month old.Give it some time people!

I hear what you're saying, but many of us purchased the Thrill because of the promise to upgrade it to Gingerbread within a month of launch. I'm sure i'm not the only one, but if i had known it was going to be indefinitely postponed, I would have waited the extra month for the Galaxy S2. We as consumers shouldn't be lied to...if something is promised, it should be delivered.

No argument there. You are 100 percent right. But our device has one of a kind specs/hardware. No other device has the hardware setup that we have so you really cant discuss other phones having gingerbread while we dont. It makes sense that gingerbread has to be tweaked especially for the Thrill. Wouldnt want them to rush it and send out updates that dont fully support our device. Just my opinion.

Honestly I don't know why people are never happy with the Android version they have. Just because they're told about an update, they freak out and HAVE to have it right then, or they wanna jump ship. Half of them can't tell you what features the new Android version has. The only reason I'm working on GB and ICS is to fix the battery problem caused by froyo.

Well put.
I have no problems with my thrill at all. I KNOW that I have a POWERFUL device no matter what version of Android it is currently running. Come on people, DUAL CORE PROCESSOR, DUAL CHANNEL RAM(first and only of its kind), 1080p video recording and viewing, and not to mention the added luxury of 3D gaming, videos, and apps. what more could you possibly want your phone to do? I know that updates bring more functions as well as improves on hardware compatibility but my THRILL does enough for me to the point where I can wait for updates patiently and still enjoy my device.

DUAL CHANNEL will kill all other phones....at least until other companies implement the same technology with higher specs!
