One of Verizon’s less-reported-on Android smartphones is the midrange LG Ally. What usually happens is that the high-end devices steal all the thunder from the midrangers, that, usually, are sold in many more units.
It turns out that patience was the key here, as the Ally is indeed bound to get updated to Froyo. But that will happen in February 2011. A moderator said that on LG’s official forums, and LG ‘certified’ the post, which more or less means they’ve officially confirmed the information.
Sure, the high-end smartphones that will launch by then will probably all run Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but such is the life in the midrange. The phone manufacturers focus their updating efforts on the more expensive phones first, and, with Android’s rapid pace of development, by the time updates reach the cheaper phones, they may already be obsolete.
Still, LG Ally owners will have something to be happy about this February.
