Android 2.3 Gingerbread Is Headed to Nexus One In “Next Few Days”, Says Open Handset Alliance

Well, the Nexus Two isn’t coming any time soon since TechCrunch recently reported that Google discovered a “major hardware issue” with it. But that isn’t stopping Google from pushing ahead from releasing the next version of Android: version 2.3 “Gingerbread” (it’s NOT going to be 3.0).


Alvaro Fuentes Vasquez – a member of the leadership team of Open Handset Alliance (the governing body behind Android) -  tweeted the following (translated):

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

This tweet goes very much along the earlier posted rumors of Android 2.3 rolling out on 11th November. Expected new features include UI tweaks and video calling via Google Talk (that’s it!?), though this is not official yet. [TechCrunch via The Android Phone]
