Google After countless rumours, leaked screenshots, and what not, Google has officially unveiled Android 2.3, dubbed Gingerbread, today. Accompanying the release of this new Android version is the Nexus S, a Samsung-made successor to HTC's Nexus One, which delivers the pure Google experience - unlocked, without additional crap.

Heh, that would be true, except this LG Eve is stuck with Android 1.5, and all the nice apps and tools (like fancy keyboards) require 1.6. The LG keyboard and the stock keyboard work the same way when it comes to bouncing the screen to show word suggestions.

Ok, good point 1.5 was a bit primitive in what it offered.

You could give this a try: http://openetna.com/openetna/ Supposedly works for your phone.

I've been keeping my eyes on a couple different ROMs for the Eve. Unfortunately, it's the wife's phone and she's not too keen on having things break. ;) She's not too annoyed by it's limitations so far. Once she is, though, then I'll get to play. ;)

Personally, I'm waiting for the price of the HTC Desire Z to come down, so I can unlock it and use it on Rogers. I just can't bring myself to pay $500 CDN for one. It comes with 2.2, and should be upgradeable to 2.3.

Works like a charm. The camera has a max 3meg limit right now but otherwise it is very fast, capable of playing games it couldn't run before and overall reborn.

I loaded 2.2 Openetna on my LG Eve. The phone rocks now.

Nice!

Straightforward install?

The lowly ~600 MHz CPU in there keeps up?

I'll keep this in mind for when she gets fed up with the little glitches here and there. ;)
