Ah, the brutally fast, unrelenting pace of Android: sure is tough for manufacturers to keep their products -- some of which are just weeks old -- looking fresh when they're one or two major OS versions behind, isn't it? LG promised all the way back in August that owners of its QWERTY Ally for Verizon would be eventually getting Froyo, and now they've offered up a window: next February. That's kind of sucky considering that means it will have been a solid half year since they originally announced the update, but short of buying a Nexus or falling in with the xda-developers crowd, there still doesn't seem to be a great way to guarantee that you're going to stay on the bleeding edge of the Android code trunk.
