Motorola Milestone 2 owners, here is some good news for you! Motorola Europe has announced via their official Facebook page that they will be rolling out the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for your phone beginning from tomorrow.
The Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the Milestone 2 will bring a new launcher and app drawer, along with some refreshed colors for the UI. The usual Gingerbread goodies like a Download Manager app, improved copy and paste, a detailed battery usage graph are also on-board. Users should also expect performance and stability improvements.
Motorola Milestone 2 owners in the Europe should consider themselves lucky that they are finally getting some Android 2.3 Gingerbread love from Motorola. The U.S version of the Milestone 2, the Droid 2, already got its Gingerbread update a few months ago. Its shameful to see that it took Motorola nearly a year to update the Milestone 2 to Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Most Milestone 2 owners must be thinking whether they will be getting the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update or not? Well, looking at the pace at which Motorola released the Gingerbread update, I am pretty sure they will have brought a new phone if Motorola decides to update the handset to Ice Cream Sandwich.
Since Motorola will be rolling out the update in stages, users should not expect the update to land on their phone tomorrow itself.
