When HTC tweeted yesterday that the Droid Incredible would be getting a long-overdue Gingerbread update sometime in September, we assumed that meant “in a couple weeks”. We’re still flipping our calendars forward, and there are already signs that the update is nearly upon us, with Verizon updating its Incredible support pages in advance of the update.
As we’ve discussed many times in the past, this doesn’t necessarily mean that the update is imminent, but it’s more likely than not that we’ll see it within a matter of days. Case in point: Verizon was in the same position with the Incredible a couple weeks back, but ended up putting a stop to the update’s distribution.
That code was version 4.06.605.2, and apparently it needed just a little more tweaking before Verizon was comfortable distributing it to its subscribers, because now we’re up to 4.06.605.3. The list of new features doesn’t give us much of a clue what’s been changed since 605.2, so we’re left assuming it’s a bugfix of some kind or another.
Be on the lookout for the Incredible Gingerbread update to start trickling out anytime now.
