With Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich expected to see a launch soon, we guess it’s better late than never that Verizon is finally releasing the Gingerbread update for the LG Revolution, although as to whether the LG Revolution will be seeing the Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 update remains to be seen. Even if it doesn’t, at the very least it will go out with Gingerbread onboard.

The update is said to be rolling out to users, so if you’re the owner of the LG Revolution, expect the notification to come over the next several days, but if you’re the impatient type, head on down to your phone’s Menu > Settings > About Phone > Software Update > Check New, and here’s what you will be able to expect from the update apart from the usual Gingerbread 2.3 refinements.

Email & Messaging

  • Email folders will now display in the correct order.
  • The maximum attachment size is now set correctly, even when the Exchange service is configured with unlimited size attachments.
