Samsung Captivate to get Gingerbread on AT&T
Upgrade will come at different times for different handsets

AT&T will be offering the update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread for all smartphones that were launched in 2011. The update will come for all post-paid handsets.

Among the handsets to get the update include the Motorola Atrix 4G, and the HTC Status. The HTC Inspire 4G will get the update in the coming weeks. When the update hits the Atrix, it will give owners the ability to download apps from third-party stores. On July 17, the HTC Status will hit AT&T stores with Android 2.3 onboard.

Owners of the Samsung Captivate will also get upgraded to Android 2.3. Other smartphones getting the 2.3 update include the LG Phoenix and Pantech Crossover.

The delivery method for the updates will vary depending on the smartphone. The updates will come OTA when possible but in some cases, Wi-Fi or a PC connection will be needed to get the update.
