Bad news for already owners of LG Optimus 3D Smartphone and discouraging new for prospective users, LG has tentatively indicated that it will not be ready with Gingerbread (Android 2.3, latest version of Android Mobile Operating System) upgrade for LG Optimus 3D Smartphone until October.

Currently LG Optimus 3D is running Android 2.2, which is popularly known as Froyo and users are eagerly waiting for upgrade to latest version, for which they still need to wait for three more months, which will be ten months after the availability of Gingerbread version of Android Operating System, by which Google may announce Android 2.4, next version of Android Operating System and code named as Ice Cream Sandwich. In other words, immediately after getting upgrade for Gingerbread, LG Optimus 3D owners have to start waiting for next version upgrade. This is really not very encouraging news for prospective buyers of first 3D enabled Smartphone in the market.

October timeframe is for UK users, users from other countries may have to go through even longer waiting times before they could see the upgrade over their phones. This may indirectly help the sales of HTC’s Evo 3D, which comes with 3D feature and ships with Gingerbread version of Android.
