Good news for C-Spire Wireless (Cellularsouth) customers today as two of their flagship Android devices have been updated to Android 2.3, Gingerbread.

The Motorola Milestone X (Droid X) and the Samsung Galaxy S (original) have both received updates to Android 2.3.

The Samsung Galaxy S update is ready in the kies desktop program for users to manually update to the latest version of Android.  The Motorola Milestone X on the other hand can find their update in settings, phone, updates, and have it download directly to the phone.

Both phones are brought up to the current (latest) version of Android which is Gingerbread, of course in a matter of weeks they’ll be behind a version when Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is released. Neither Motorola or Samsung have said which phones will be updated to Ice Cream Sandwich.

In addition to Gingerbread C-Spire says the updates will bring

  • Improved battery performance
  • Improved IMAP/POP3 e-mail performance
  • Improved account and contact sync performance (like Facebook)
  • MMS size increased from 512KB to 1MB
