We think it’s fair to say that, at one point or another, most smartphone users have found themselves frustrated at the time needed to get the latest and greatest OS update out for their phone. Some manufacturers are more prompt than others, but it’s a feeling that most of us can relate to. There are those times, though, when we totally get why a company might need a little extra time to pull an update together, due to one extenuating circumstance or another. We think that having dual screens certainly falls into that category, which is why it’s great to see Kyocera about to deliver a Gingerbread update for its Echo.
Leaked Sprint docs show the update scheduled for distribution beginning on August 1, and commencing through the following three days. In addition to a build of Gingerbread that will play nicely with the phone’s transforming screen, the update will include a new version of Swype and a few assorted tweaks and bug fixes.
Look for a notification from your Echo early next week that system software 2.002SP awaits you.
