Google pushes Android Gingerbread 2.3 to Nexus One handsets?


If you’re feeling a little down now that the official successor to the Google Nexus One, the Nexus S, has been announced, don’t feel too bad — reports around the internet indicate that Google has just started pushing the Android OS 2.3 update out, and it’s ready for you to hit that upgrade button. Gingerbread brings along Wi-Fi calling at the OS level, faster keyboard support, even better power manager, download manager, UI refinements and updates, along with support for some pretty sexy hardware that the current Nexus One unfortunately doesn’t contain.

UPDATE: False alarm on the Android 2.3 update for the Nexus One. According to Reto Meier, developer advocate at Google, the update is due in the next “few weeks.” If you’re really anxious you can check out the Android 2.3 user guide.
