Android Gingerbread Hits Nexus One Soon?
 
 

Android 2.3 SDK out November 11

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.
