Motorola Milestone 2 Finally Gets The Android 2.3 Gingerbread Update
By on November 29th, 2011

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.

    No way! The article is from 2011, but until today (2012-06-11) no update for the milestone is offered. (“Your system is up to date. It does not need an update”. I bought the Milestone 2 in 2010 since Motorola offered updates. Nothing has happened since then. Actually there is no technical support available in Germany (Europe). All this is extremely annoying, since there are so many bug in the software (e.g. phone is blocked and you have to reboot). From this experience I must say that the Milestone is technical crap. Buy a different smart phone, perhaps a Galaxy, but I do not have experience with it.
