Following a misfire earlier this month, official word has finally come straight from the horse’s mouth. Using its “googlenexus” Twitter account, Google announced Monday that the Nexus One will receive an update to Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) “in the coming weeks.”

The Gingerbread OTA for Nexus One will happen in the coming weeks. Just hang tight!

The update will be issued over the air, so users will not have to connect their Nexus One smartphones to PCs in order to apply the update. Once Android 2.3 begins rolling out, users will see an alert on their devices and will be walked through the update process. Google has not stated how long it will take to push Gingerbread out to all Nexus One devices, or which regions will receive the update first.
