Android 2.2 FROYO OR 2.3 GINGERBREAD?

Post by Rodders1969 »

Hi,
I've just bought the Archos Arnova 10" G2 8gb Tablet and the spec on the adverts and reviews say it is running 2.3 Gingerbread, however on the box it syas FROYO. Any ideas which it is running or can it be upgraded to 2.3 if its only running 2.2?

Thanks.

If you bought it and obviously have it, you can simply go to menu->settings->About the phone. It will mention the android version.

Arnovatech.com recently released new firmware which you can download now to a pc. Not sure if it would alter version of android (mine came gingerbread and I never read the box), but it is easier to update soon after opening rather than later. Also keep an eye out for a stable custom firmware expected from arctools which should allow access to google market.

thanks. Time will tell when the box gets opened. Good to know that there is upgradeable firmware though. does anyone know if you can connect to the internet via a 3g dongle or sim wifi?
