LG got a little ahead of itself and is now correcting a previously-made announcement regarding Android 2.3 and the future of the LG Optimus smartphone series.

The new and improved statement is short and concise, so here you go:

LG released information prematurely regarding the minimum processor upgrade requirements for the LG Optimus. Google recently announced the Gingerbread platform and has not yet published the Gingerbread Compatibility Definition Document (CDD) or the public branch open source code. Once the CDD and the source code is public, LG will evaluate the upgradability of the Optimus Series. We apologize for any confusion or misunderstanding. We will alert you as soon as more information on this topic is available.

LG had announced on its Facebook page that the Optimus series wouldn't get upgraded to the recently-unveiled Android 2.3 platform because "the minimum requirements for Gingerbread require 1Ghz processor." Since then, that post has been deleted.
