With the news coming out yesterday that Google's Nexus S was delayed by two days in the UK and won’t be in the shops until tomorrow (December 22), it will come as more welcome news that its first ever handset, the Nexus One will be getting a Gingerbread update “in the coming weeks.”
The information was released on the Twitter feed of @googlenexus last night stating: “The Gingerbread OTA for Nexus One will happen in the coming weeks. Just sit tight.” It will no doubt come as great news for Nexus One owners who have been sitting nervously staring at their screens since the Nexus S was launched a couple of weeks ago running Gingerbread.
This is the first official word from Google that the Nexus One will be getting the update. Despite the Nexus One being pulled from shelves six months after it went on sale, it continues to be one of the best performing Android phones. This is partly down to it running a pure version of Android and updating to a clean version of Gingerbread will no doubt make the most of the upgrade – especially when compared to other phones running slightly altered versions of the OS.
