HTC Giving Gingerbread to Droid Incredible, Thunderbolt in Sept.

The HTC Droid Incredible has had a long, convoluted path leading towards its future Gingerbread update. We’ve seen leaks, then outright denials that the smartphone would ever get Gingerbread. That didn’t last, and then Verizon looked ready as of a couple weeks ago to start sending the update out. Once again, things cooled down, and though there have been more leaks, we’re still waiting for the actual OTA update.

Gingerbread on the Thunderbolt has always seemed like more of a sure thing, not quite hitting the same speedbumps the Incredible did. Of course, it’s had its own problems with buggy updates doing more harm than good, and has seen its share of Gingerbread leaks of its own. We were told that the phone should see an official OTA Gingerbread update by October, and that’s now looking quite certain.

All these trials should soon be behind the pair, at least according to HTC. The company tweeted today that the updates for both models will be released sometime during September. Of course, Verizon still needs to sign-off on things, but it’s a positive step in the right direction.
