Android Gingerbread Hits Nexus One Soon?
 
 

Android Gingerbread will be the most jarring upgrade the OS has seen yet. The interface will see a major upgrade, as will Android gaming. Gingerbread is expected to be Android 2.3, which may see a launch by Q4 of 2010.

If Android Police is right, that launch will be happening this week. Open Handset Alliance team member Alvaro Vasquez revealed two crucial details via Twitter today.

"Prepare your Nexus One (Developer version) for Android OTA update 2.3 (Gingerbread) for the next few days:-D"

This is confirmation that Gingerbread will be 2.3, and the first rumor we've heard that the Nexus One will be Gingerbread's inaugural device. The Nexus Two was originally expected to be the first native 2.3 smartphone. Now that it has (apparently) been delayed, Google may be using the Nexus One to reveal Gingerbread to the world.

It is worth noting that some rumors place the Android 2.3 SDK launching on November 11. Those of you with a mind to hack your phones will be able to start fiddling with Gingerbread then.

So what of the Nexus Two? If it doesn't launch until January, Google may try pushing it to launch along with the release of whatever version of Android (3.0?) comes next. If that's the case, bleeding-edge developers will have to make due with their Nexus One for a little longer. Hey, at least it's aging well.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
