Android 2.3 beta for Meizu M9 officially released
The Meizu M9 smartphone has received the update to Android 2.3 beta, which fixed certain issues with the handset. Namely, international users will no longer have to put up with non-working Google Contacts and Calendar sync, while non-downloadable Market apps have now been fixed. Other detail changes are present as well.
Also expected with the update for the phone are better power management and improved overall performance that would come along with Android 2.3. Meizu CEO Jack Wong confirmed on the company's forums that the update is official and now available.
Early adopters who've installed the software say the home screen page indicator has turned white from blue, with the border removed. The contacts and calendar sync works out of the box and contacts get avatars synced as well. And the apps that couldn't be downloaded before, such as Angry Birds Rio, are now available as well. Another user is reporting an impressive Quadrant score of 1828 points with the new software on the single-core phone. There is also a fair bit of reports that the phone is crashing and freezing.
The 98MB update is available at the time of writing. [via MeizuMe]
