The Google Nexus team posted a message on Twitter notifying Nexus One owners not to worry about waiting a long time for the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update, saying:
The Gingerbread OTA for Nexus One will happen in the coming weeks. Just hang tight! (link)
This is a major Android update that’s chock full of improvements. With Gingerbread comes better file and task management, a new keyboard, improved cut and paste, faster performance and improved battery life.
It’s kind of nice to see Google still updating the Nexus One, since they gave up on selling the device months ago. Most companies would drop all support for a discontinued phone by now.
