Last month, AT&T promised that all of the Androids that it had started selling so far this year (as well as some from 2010) that didn’t come with Gingerbread already installed would be receiving updates to Android 2.3 at some point. Now the software update is ready for one of the models on that list, the HTC Inspire 4G.
The Inspire 4G received an update to enable HSUPA mode back in April, giving users a well-appreciated boost to their data speeds. Now with Gingerbread here, the Inspire 4G is shaping up to be a nicely-supported Android, update-wise.
AT&T users with Inspire 4Gs should be getting update notifications soon, if they haven’t already. Thought HTC just announced the news today, in doing so it says that the update roll-out began last Thursday. If you haven’t seen any sign of it yet, you can always try manually checking for an update, or downloading the 269MB RUU directly from HTC.
The update will bring your phone up to Android 2.3.3, install a newer version of Sense, and of course include a smattering of unspecified bugfixes and improvements look for smarter power management, among others.
