Cellcom Wireless

Cellcom -- a regional carrier out of Wisconsin is getting bringing some Android 2.3 love to their line up of devices. They confirmation came from Samsung and Motorola as noted on their Facebook page:

Android 2.3( Gingerbread) Update: We have been informed by Motorola that the Milestone X & by Samsung that the Galaxy S Showcase will both be getting an update to Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). At this time there have not been testing timelines established, so we do not have any indication as to when the updates will be available.
 

With all these regional carriers getting ready to roll out Android 2.3, it all kind of makes you wonder what, exactly takes the big boys so long in their approval processes but alas, we've been down that road a good many times before and it's an argument that has no end.

If Cellcom carried either the thunderbolt, or the droid 2....apples and oranges folks.....apples and oranges.

Agreed! It seems to have mostly just caused problems for both Droid X & EVO owners.

I'm very glad I chose to keep my Droid X on stock Froyo(2.2.1)

And why would you say that? Is is because they make better phones than what you currently have and your just jealous?

It was worth a shot. Since you own one you should understand how awesome the hardware is, they should have a stable CM7 rom coming very very shortly. Do yourself a favor and root and run a voodoo rom with lag fix. This phone runs so smooth and fast that it even shuts the iphone guys up. I'm still blown away to this day about how smooth and fast everything scrolls, opens, you name it. When I first saw the thunderbolt i was very very unimpressed esp with how laggy it felt compared to my phone.
