AT&T is showing its commitment to Android this morning with an announcement that confirms Android 2.3 Gingerbread updates to the following phones: HTC Inspire 4G, LG Phoenix, Motorola Atrix 4G, Pantech Crossover, Samsung Captivate, and Samsung Infuse 4G.

Atrix 4G owners will get their update starting today, while Inspire 4G users will receive an update in August. The Atrix 4G update will also let users download apps from third-party stores. Due to different manufacturer skins and other performance issues, AT&T has not revealed when the rest of the aforementioned devices will get their updates.

The other Android 2.3 Gingerbread phone not on the list is the HTC Status, which is AT&T's first Android 2.3 smartphone.
