Great news Mergers we will be releasing the new Android 2.3 Gingerbread update in the next couple of days. To update to the new software press menu go to settings, about phone, and software update. What’s different about this update? Take a look

When on the home screen and the menu button on the bottom of the device is pressed there is a new menu bar with more features.

In the Menu screen at the bottom there are two other icons, Frequent and Downloaded

On the bottom of the menu when the star is pressed the most frequent applications used are brought up

On the bottom of the menu when the down arrow is selected that will show the downloaded applications

In the Menu screen instead of a smooth scrolling through the apps, the apps are scrolled through in blocks.

There are 2 different way s to access this screen. From the Home Screen if Personalize is selected in the bottom right corner this screen will come up. The second way is to add a widget and this screen will also pop up. This is a whole new way to personalize the home screen and to add widgets.

In the notification bar there are two different tabs instead of one

In the notification bar the Quick Settings allows fast access to some of the most frequent settings

When the power button is held down there is a new feature called restart that closes all apps and resets the phone.
