A Google representative was apparently recently chatting with a mister HR Raphael of ComputerWorld today informed the writer that not only will Android 2.3 be rolling out toward the Nexus One soon, there’ve been no unexpected hurdles in getting the update ready to go. Sounds good to me. This comes at a time when the Nexus S already has such an upgrade (or rather, was shipped out with it installed already,) and the world is waiting for both Gingerbread and Honeycomb on their devices.

Of course, some people are still waiting for Froyo, and even others are just waiting for new devices. Fear not, all ye ladies and gentlemen, another big milestone is on it’s way. Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona shall be your salvation, and all good things shall flow out of it. And we’ll have the baskets to capture them in, and we’ll be there in Barcelona to give it all to you the MOMENT we receive it.

ALSO check out this tweet from back on December 20 of 2010 that said this update would be coming in the coming weeks. Reasonable claims all around.

    First, thanks for the update … but

    1. December’s prediction of a release in “the coming weeks” did not play out. Sorry, it’s been more than a month since that tweet.

    2. We still have no idea as to when the N1 Gingerbread OTA will happen as “soon” is about as nebulous as it gets even if it did come from the friend of an engineer’s uncle.

    please keep us posted though 🙂

  • dale smith

    I heard the same thing before thanksgiving

  • gee

    “coming weeks” means more than a month…

  • Carl

    There’s nothing new about this. We’re already waiting for this release, and we’ve been getting the runaround from Google for the last month.

    I’ll believe it when I see the OTA notification on my phone. But for now, can everyone please stop posting this articles about how it’s coming soon?

  • Hello

    Where can I buy a nexus one

  • Foo

    I’m going to speculate that the N1 hasn’t seen the OTA update yet because they have an agreement with Samsung to hold off so the S has another selling point. It’s been close to 6 weeks now and that sounds like a reasonable hold-off time frame. IMHO, anyway. It’ll be here when it gets here.

  • BuddyLuv

    Hahahaha! what a joke. Why even write this article. Google is saying the same crap they’ve been saying since Turkey Day last year. Soon doesn’t mean a thing.
    Hey, when is the world gonna end?
    ANS: Soon.

    Just open your mouth and tell us the truth; which is after Mobile World Congress.

  • The Pickle

    Wow, old news is COOL.

    That tweet is from Jan 4, it is more than 2 weeks old already.

  • Someone

    Hey, I’m still glad that they’ll give us updates as soon as they’re ready… and not wait for next year’s model and update them all at the same time (sometimes with disasterous consequences).

    Looking forward to “soon”!

  • Carl


    Just got the OTA to 2.3 on my Nexus One. It’s installing as we speak! I’ll update after it completes and I give it the old 1-2.

  • Terry

    Just got mine too. A month late is better than never!

  • defender

    just did a checkin and I too was prompted to install gingerbread. what a glorious day

  • legless1

    Where are you guys located? Mine hasn’t come yet……. 🙁 🙁

  • brian davies

    Updated. Testing it out at we speak :p

  • W00t W00t

    the community has spoken!!!! gingembre is here and it rocks. well worth the wait. thanks google

  • GimmetheGoods

    does anyone have a link for the manual install?

  • Russ

    Be amazed if a link surfaces…

  • kev

    Bunch of idiots its 2.2.2 that has been ota’d

  • Russ

    Wow, it takes a special kind of stupid to confuse the two, considering it says 2.2.2 at the top of the OTA notification.

  • Russ

    Sorry, my bad, I now just got the 2.3 gingerbread OTA.

  • Kev

    So did I. I guess we’re the bunch of idiots. LOL!

  • kev

    Don’t believe it. If it were true the Google support forum and xd would be going nuts post a pic of you’re so called gingerbread ota or email me pics @ rabidrotty@yahoo.ca

    • Russ

      Emailed the pics. Don’t get jealous just because a bunch of us got the OTA and you didn’t. Google obviously likes us more than they like you.

      • CharlieSD

        Russ, You are right! I guess they are not a bunch of idiots after all… YOU ARE THE ONLY IDIOT HERE and downloaded manually or stole the picture just to prove your point to Kev. The others just made a simple mistake and thought they were receiving GB instead of 2.2.2 YOU, IDIOT

  • kev (the real kev)

    Where r the pics exactly?

  • n1user

    Better put on my hip-waiters cause the shit in here is getting deep

  • Russ

    Sorry guys, just realized i did not receive Gingerbread. I got the OTA 2.2.2 instead. Did too much drinking lately….. SORRY!

  • Tonsunoko

    Seems like everyone has been focusing on Honeycomb and has forgotten about Gingerbread. I keep hearing that we will get in any day now, yet nothing ever arrives. Are there any credible indications of when it might arrive, or have all we keep hearing been just wishful thinking and amateur reporting?

  • sickofit

    Fuck android, fuck google and fuck gingerbread. been waiting for this pos upgrade for months like an idiot. going to iphone 4 and verizon. don’t string people along for half a year just for some stupid os upgrade . fuck you.

  • Googlesucks

    I haet google now!!!

  • JustMad

    I cant beleive google would do this to their loyal customers just for samshit. I really dont understand. Were is the loyalty Google! Its not like that many people have nexus ones. It would have actually been a good marketing ploy for samshit anyways to give us gingerbread . I can’t beleive you would let another company meddle in your affairs like this. Your management is going to shit . Anyways Facebook is gonna rape your ass now. Down with Gooshit!!

    Worse than a Windows upgrade …. My Nexus one has now upgraded and of course I trusted the download …Post upgrade it runs really slowly and has lost some basic functionality … for instance not displaying when a caller is ringing .. the “answer” button has disappeared … The display is either slow or locks and I can’t see any additional functionality … apart from some of the ICONS are now green (big deal) considering going back to my old Nokia … Forget Awsome … Think retrograde … If you have the option don’t do it till the bugs are fixed
