About a month ago, T-Mobile USA said that the G2X (aka LG Optimus 2X) would be upgraded to Android 2.3 Gingerbread “soon.”
Now the carrier says (via its Twitter account) that the upgrade should arrive “by summer.” Theoretically, summer in the US starts in June – thus next week. Does this mean the G2X will be upgraded by then? I doubt it, but let’s wait and see.
Launched by T-Mobile in April, the G2X is currently out of stock. It seems the demand is higher than the carrier had hoped it to be. It also seems that, for this reason, T-Mo wants to adjust the smartphone’s price. According to the image below, starting today, May 27, the G2X should cost $299 on contract, not $199 (as its initial price was).
The price adjustment isn’t visible at T-Mobile’s official website yet, so the carrier may have changed its mind about this.
