Android 2.3 coming to the Nexus One in the next few weeks

Several reports came in this morning that Android 2.3 was rolling out to the Nexus One when Google released the SDK, but it appears those stories jumped the gun a little. Android Developer Advocate at Google, Reto Meier, just tweeted that an over the air update to Android 2.3 for the Nexus One “should be coming in a few weeks.” If we had to pick a time for the OTA update, it sounds like December 16th might be a date you would want to circle.

    Aw man, and I thought when it was announced to be released in a few weeks, last month, that it’d be actually hitting phones then. Wow, who would’ve thought they’d bail on that and release it a month later.

    Guess I’ll be waiting for my N1 to be updated then.

      “in the next few weeks” means March 2011. Mark my words…

    What are the chances the mt3g gets gingerbread??? I heard that there was a slim chance….

    It will be at least a week after Nexus S hits the stores…..

    They want the Nexus S to be the first phone with 2.3. So they will keep it the only one for at least a week.

    My guess is end of the year at best.

    Disappointment. I thought that seeing as the N1 is the development platform that it would land there first.

    @those asking for updates for non Nexus phones:

    There are 3 factors involved in getting an update to your phone.

    1) Hardware has to meet the system requirements of the Android version being upgraded to.

    2) The manufacturer has to get the update and integrate it with their offerings. This includes testing, etc. If they add extra stuff to the base OS, they have to make sure none of the “connections” are broken.

    3) The cell carrier has to approve.

    #3 Doesn’t apply to Nexus series phones.
    #2 Is fairly easy for Nexus series phones, as all they really need to do is drop in the drivers and hit compile. There are no “connections” to break since it’s a “virgin” experience. =P

    This is why Nexus 1 / S move to new versions within a week or two of a new version being released.

      The way you wrote “Nexus 1 / S” made me think of something…
      There’s 1, there’s S (which is kinda like a flipped 2), so what if Google’s made a deal with Sony Ericsson to make the nexus E? :P

        Backwards 3? I like it… you should buy the rights to that then sell it to Google at an exorbitant price.

        Then letter “A” is something like number “4″, so Alcatel’s “Nexus A” is the next ;)

    Yes I know the title reads Nexus but just wanted to share the information I read over at another trusted Android website. Well the amazing team at XDA was able to hack the Evo and upgrade it to 2.3, I can imagine how long it will take to do the same for other popular devices.
