LG’s Kenneth Hong has gone on record saying that all of LG’s Optimus phones in 2011 and beyond will be getting at least one-level upgrades after their launch. (This means you can expect a Froyo device to get Gingerbread or a Gingerbread device to get Ice Cream whenever that debuts.) We have to take into consideration that LG would only be accountable for the unlocked/unbranded versions of their phones. Updates still have to go through each carrier ultimately, and unless there’s some clause in place, they have the right to deny it. (Or make their users experience excruciatingly long delays.)
