AT&T: 2011 Android devices will all receive Gingerbread AT&T has noted this week that all Android phones released in 2011 will be updated to Gingerbread, a welcome development for consumers.
So far, those phones are the HTC Inspire 4G, LG Phoenix, Motorola ATRIX 4G, Pantech Crossover, Samsung Captivate and the Samsung Infuse 4G.

Google released Gingerbread (2.3) last December with the launch of the Nexus S, and the firmware has been updated to 2.3.4 since. However, the majority of current Android phones still do not have the update, especially if your phone was released earlier than this summer.

AT&T did add that some of the phones will get the updates OTA but others will require a manual download.

As of today, Gingerbread is on 17.7 percent of devices with Froyo (2.2) on a whopping 59 percent of current devices.

I loved my Atrix 4G, but just in the last few days it recieved Netflix app which is a big plus for me. Then I was able to update to Gingerbread just a couple days after that via OTA update. Has made me fall in love with the Atrix all over again. Glad to see AT&T updating all of their phones...IMO, it made a huge difference and feels like a new phone
