The weekend arrived, and it’s time for our weekly review, the Week in Review @PocketDroid.

We started this week with an interesting story, which was about a white Samsung Galaxy W. Here’s a part from the story:

Later, we found out that the Super Amoled HD on the Samsung GT-I9220 is a real thing! Here’s a cut from the story:

Then we wrote an interesting story, which was about the Gingerbread update for the HTC Thunderbolt. Here’s what we said:

Droid Incredible and Thunderbolt owners must know that an official update for these two is coming this September, at least that’s what HTC tweeted on its Twitter account.

Along the way there were a few leaked Android 2.3 firmware updates for both Incredible and Thunderbolt, but non of those were good enough (some were to hard to flash following some complicated instructions for a newbie). Full article

After that, we told you about the Gingerbread update for the Motorola Droid 2 Global. Here’s a small part from the story:

Motorola has begun to send out the official Gingerbread 2.3.3 update to a small group of Droid 2 owners for testing purpose. The soak test is rolling right now and you could be a participant without even knowing it. Full story
