Nexus One Receiving Gingerbread 'In The Coming Weeks'

The Google Nexus Twitter account announced yesterday that the Google Nexus One would be receiving the Android Gingerbread update "in the coming weeks", but nothing more specific than that. There are already some Gingerbread ROMs floating around for the Nexus One and other handsets thanks to the Nexus S, but none of them are official and fully functioning.

This has caused some dissatisfaction for some Nexus One buyers, because when they bought the handset, they felt as if they received a guarantee that their phone would always be the first phone to get the newest version of Android.

With the Nexus S, many were assuming that the Gingerbread update for the Nexus One would be timed for release with the Nexus S. Unfortunately for them, that is not how it went, as the Nexus S has already been on the market for 5 days.

If I was a betting man (which I'm not), I might say that the Gingerbread update may be timed for around the time that CES is taking place in January.

In other Gingerbread news, the Gingerbread source code was recently given to the Android Open Source Project, meaning that all parts of Android 2.3 are available to the public and manufacturers so that devices can begin to have Gingerbread updates pushed onto them.

Don't get too excited yet, however, as I would expect the first official update (besides the Nexus One) may take somewhere between 1 or 2 months in the best scenario.

    I have to say that I didn't think 'the coming weeks' would end up extending to past 4 weeks time.
