Android 2.3 Gingerbread for Nexus One? Release Likely on Nov 11

Written By Sam on 9 November 2010

Google had been eager to release its new mobile operating system the Android version 2.3 Gingerbread with the launch of Nexus Two. However, there will be a delay in the launch of Nexus Two, but Google is not letting this be a set back and is going full throttle on releasing ‘Gingerbread’ on the Nexus One handset itself.

The source of this information, a certain Alvaro Vasquez, is being considered pretty valid since he happens to be a member of the Open Handset Alliance, which is a Google-led business alliance of 78 firms involved in developing open standards for mobile devices. Alvaro Vasquez shared the information through a Twitter message, which was spotted by the Android Police blog.

The tweet literally conveyed that users should prepare their Nexus One devices as the Android 2.3 Gingerbread was coming their way in just a few days.
This tweet does confirm earlier rumors about the Android 2.3 being released on November 11. Though no date has been specified by the developers, but the tweet coming from someone within the Open Hand Alliance is confirmation enough that the release should be expected sometime soon.

Other indications that only re-inforce and re-confirm the information imparted in the tweet are:

  • A strange Flash Player for Android note, which suggests that an Android update is on the cards.
  • The Gingerbread Man landing up at the Google HQ a few weeks ago.
  • The roll out plan for Nexus One is also similar to the one Google used for rolling out the Android 2.2 – a late night launch.

The expected date is not far, it might just happen within the coming week and it sure will be a welcome development for all Nexus One users.
