Hooray! Android developer Jean-Baptiste Queru's Twitter account hath granted us all a lovely bit of news saying that Android 2.3 Gingerbread will soon be released to AOSP Android Open Source Project soon after Nexus S day (that day being December 15, tomorrow.) This means that ROMs are soon on the way via hackers of the world - get those rooted devices out and get pumped up for cookies.
Or, you know, feel free to wait like everyone else so fearful of blowing their phone up that the furthest they travel into its workings are to change the background image. You can just watch the videos until Gingerbread's official on all the rest of the devices. Fun!
