HTC Droid Incredible: You Angry Gingerbread Update got Scrapped
HTC Droid Incredible users will be a little angry to hear that they will not be getting the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update. This is going to cause mayhem with Incredible customers as they have been waiting a long time for this update.
Many customers were told that the Gingerbread update was coming over and over again, only to be told it is not coming now. The original Droid Incredible will not see and Android 2.3 update now as it is no longer on its list.
Why has the plug been pulled on this update? If you visit Droid-Life an HTC Rep has posted a letter saying thank you for contacting HTC in regards to Operating System upgrades to your Droid Incredible, the letter in a nutshell mentions that only certain phones will get the Gingerbread update if they feel it will improve overall user experience, features, performance and usability.
The Droid Incredible is not on that list according to the HTC rep named as Stephen the rep also said, “We deeply regret any dissatisfaction this issue may have caused”.
We would love to know if this is at all true, surely the HTC Rep has got it wrong that the HTC droid Incredible is not getting the Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS update, could he actually mean that the Droid Eris is not getting the update.
We will keep you posted about this matter, if you are an owner of the HTC droid Incredible and the above is all true we would love for you to come forward so that you can have your say. All comments are most welcome, are you angry that the Droid Incredible is not getting the Gingerbread update?
If we go back to our previous article back on April 14th HTC emailed a customer this ” Dear [Redacted]: I understand your concern about wanting to know when the Android 2.3 upgrade will be released for the HTC Incredible. I’m pleased to inform you that there is going to be an update this summer to Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). At this time we do not have any more information about the update. When the update is released we will announce it on www.htc.com and www.facebook.com/htc. If you feel you need more information, you are welcome to send us another email or you can contact the HTC Technical Support team at [Redacted] daily from 6:00AM until 1:00AM Eastern.”
So what is the truth, is the Droid Incredible getting the Gingerbread update or what HTC, we are calling anyone that works for HTC to come forward and let their customers know what is going on, you owe them that much.
