The LG Optimus is set to receive Android 2.1 according to the LG Mobile website. We’ve reached out to the Carriers to see if they’re going to push out the update with their wonderful Carrier Apps included, or if they’re going to leave Optimus owners hanging onto 1.6. If you own an LG Optimus without Carrier bloatware, you’ll be able to get the update via LG’s Mobile Support Tool in the near future.
