Re: XPRT: Where is Gingerbread

2012-07-24, 13:18 PM

I just signed up for the feedback program; I hope it's not too late to test Gingerbread, since it seems like that's the only chance of getting Gingerbread on my XPRT before the contract expires. I bought the XPRT for its international phone/security/hardware features--and I've been very pleased with that. OS upgrades, of course, have been an entirely different matter (my wife chose the low-powered, recycled Samsung Replenish at the same time, and she received Gingerbread quite a while ago). I'm looking at daily-use apps that list Android 2.2 as the *minimum* requirement--I suspect it won't be long before I cannot update these apps on Froyo (I have a 1-year old phone running on Froyo--I cringe as I type that).

Seriously, at this point I think there's a 10% chance of seeing 2.3 on my Xprt at any time. If it hasn't happened by now, why would Motorola or any handset company bust ----Profanity Removed---- to roll out an old OS (2.3) on an old phone when there are new and newer phones to worry about. I am 15 days from full upgrade, so if I want to continue with Android, it's time to get something with ICS on it.  I was going to get an Admiral, but it appears to be locked down at 2.3.


Still hopeful, but realistic.

I took a look at a Photon Q at the Sprint store. While I was originally interested in seeing it, once I put it in my hands and held it, it didn't seem like something that would outlast a 2-year contract.  Also not a fan of slideout keyboards because the entire mechanism seems like a physical weak point.


Testing iPhone 4s...  :)

Salami,


 


I have used slide out keyboard phones for the past 4 years and I have never had an issue with the mechanism.  They are far more robust than they appear.


I would not let that be a reason you avoid a particular phone.  However, I can see the prefering form factor of the XPRT.  My wife prefers the "blackberry" type setup and that is why she has an XPRT.  And the reason I browse this forum.  I keep hoping GB comes to the XPRT and improves the usability of her phone.
