Android 2.3 mobile phones available in India!


Froyo is good, Gingerbread is better. That’s how software upgrades typically work. Google is trying to tackle the fragmentation problem by collaborating with manufacturers and bringing in a 18-month window to roll out upgrades. Two years down the line the number of Android versions available would significantly come down. Until then we might need to maintain lists such as this.

Gingerbread or Android 2.3 is Google’s latest (as of Jun 20, 2011) stable OS available. It is available out of the box for some phones like HTC Sensation and Samsung Galaxy S2. For some it is available as an upgrade. For quite a few a relatively hassle free upgrade is possible, thanks to Android’s proliferation and re-branded phones available across Asia. Then there’s the fourth category, who upgrade their phone on their own. This list covers the first three categories.
