Last week, we reported on the news of Vodafone testing Gingerbread, on a number of handsets. Now Optus has joined in, saying the are currently testing Gingerbread (2.3) on The Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab.

We’re now testing the Gingerbread (2.3) software for the Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab. Keep an eye on our feed for updates.

With the Gingerbread packing Samsung Galaxy S 2, kinda on it’s way. We can only hope these updates, on both Vodafone and Optus, hit customers devices sooner rather then later.

So its a day away from August and still no Gingerbread or did I miss the event! Just hooked the phone to Kies and still no update. Has anyone heard of a firm date or has everyone given up on Optus?

This is why you source your phones unbranded from the UK. Then you’re the first to get an update as soon as it lands, rather than sitting and waiting for months for it to trickle to the various carrier branded models where they waste time “testing” before sending it to customers. Please. They don’t have the technical expertise to test anything of the sort.

From my experience people in Optus stores barely know what Android is.

Do not get what Optus is testing. The software works. Optus should come clean and admit that they are loading their crap on it and testing that! They are not tesing Android.My next phone will be a Google one. No longer have to wait for OEM and Network provider to add their crap. (Can understand whay the OEM needs to test it as Adroid needs modification by device, but what the hell is the Network provider testing – hint Nexus S already has Android 2.3.x and is it not working on Aussie networks?

After upgrading to Gingerbread 2.3, my virginmobile Samsung Galaxy S’s internet settings no longer work properly. I am able to connect to Gmail and sync, but i’m unable to log onto my facebook or youtube. πŸ™

I should let them know it works fine… been testing it for weeks now. This release will Probably remove 99% of support calls for the phone.

Which version? I finally flashed mine to 2.2.1 (XWJS7) and it’s working good. I’m loathe to touch it again now, certainly wouldn’t let an Optus-cooked rom back on there…

Anyone dubious about this? Let’s face it the 2.2 update timing bore no relationship to the Optus twitter account. I’ll believe it when I start seeing updates on XDA like last time.
