SamsungDive: Apple’s “Find My iPhone” Just Got A Rival

The HTC Status might be a sort-of-weird, kind-of-gimmicky (with its dedicated Facebook button and all) little piece of kit, but it’s got at least one thing going for it: it’s the only phone on AT&T running on the latest (phone-friendly) version of Android: v2.3, or “Gingerbread”. Not for long, though.

AT&T has just confirmed that all of the Android phones they released in 2011 will be getting the Gingerbread upgrade treatment.

The phones AT&T confirmed:

  • HTC Inspire 4G
  • LG Phoenix
  • Motorola Atrix 4G
  • Pantech Crossover
  • Samsung Captivate
  • Samsung Infuse 4G

That sure looks like all of AT&T’s 2011 Android line up so far, to me. Anyone spot anything that’s missing?

For those of you whose pre-2011 AT&T Android phones didn’t make the cut: keep your fingers crossed. AT&T also confirmed that the non-4G version of the Captivate (which was released in mid-2010) will be gettin’ the bumpgrade — so at the very least, there’s hope. If all else fails, root that thing and get some CyanogenMod-goodness all up inside it.

And as for when these updates are coming: ATRIX updates start today, Inspire 4G updates start within two weeks, and, beyond that, your guess is as good as ours. AT&T didn’t give any specific timeframes for the rest — which, to be honest, is probably for the best. Missed launch dates = ragey customers.
