Neuxs One - Gingerbread

This one came in too late last night to make the big ball of snark that was our latest Gingerbread rumor roundup, but that's OK, because this one also has a little more meat to it. Open Handset Alliance official Alvaro Fuentes Vasquez tweeted out the above on Sunday. Translated you get this:

Prepare your Nexus One (Developer version) for Android OTA update 2.3 (Gingerbread) for the next few days:-D

Not sure if that means some super secret Nexus Ones, or the developer versions you can buy directly from Google (and it should be no surprise that the N1 will get the update first). But either way, it's a pretty good sign that we'll see Gingerbread in the coming days -- hopefully this week! [Twitter via Tech Crunch]

Nexus One will be the first to get Gingerbread, maybe this week


Woo hoo! First wild speculation!

Gingerbread will also cure acne, raise your sperm count, increase your gas mileage, and halt uneven tire wear.

Matias duarte hasn't been there long enough to have had any real impact on this version. Maybe for honeycomb...

Awesome! Of course I *just* rooted my N1 and installed CM 6.1RC. Guess I'll have to figure out how to revert back to stock when this update rolls out...

Hate to be a duh, but I have a Nexus One. What is a 'developers' version? Will I get Gingerbread?

Developers purchased their N1's via their Android Developer Account. So they'll likely get Gingerbread first, and the rest of us N1 users will have to wait a bit longer.

It is very likely that the Developers will be the first ones to get the OTA, however, my guess is that within a couple hours of the roll-out, the download source will be put up here or on XDA for any Nexus One owner to download and install. However, I am not sure what band dev Nexus Ones are...if they are all T-Mobile, then likely only T-Mobile Nexus One users would be able to download and install...

Long time lurker here! I dunno if this has been done before but there should be a pool on the date and time. Whoever is the closest gets an accessory from the store of their choice under 15 bucks or something.

Love this idea.

I think we could add to this how many erroneous articles there will be about Gingerbread in general or the release date range. Today! This Week! OTA for Droid 2 owners starting now! Gingerbread will run on the iPhone!

And this time I am waiting until the ota update shows up on my EVO, no more trusting HTC website and then going through hell to get back to correct ROM so I can update. EVO wont get it until Xmas prolly. By then the Nexus guys will have the thing ironed out. Your either nexus or against us! Jk. Haha. WWE humor..

I've been hearing that Nov. 11th date for weeks now, suddenly I'm actually hopeful. Now we'll see if the G2 gets updated in a reasonable amount of time unlike any other phone on T-Mobile since the G1's heyday.

Exactly why I still have my Nexus One even after getting an iPhone. I like being able to mess with both mobile OS's. Still confident that the Nexus One was the right choice when I wanted to try out Android and this just proves me right.

My N1 has assumed the position. Gimme some gingerbread. The only thing that would be better would be a nexus 2.
