No sooner have we talked about Samsung’s Nexus S being the first to sport the new Android 2.3 Gingerbread software in Singapore has Google said it would be updating the original Nexus One with the new operating system.
In a Twitter post just moments ago, the company said it would be pushing over-the-air updates to Nexus One users right away. However, the Android 2.3.3 update, which is being rolled out to Nexus S phones as well, would take the next “few weeks” to complete, it added.
This is good news indeed for Nexus One users like this writer, whose bruised and battered 1+ year old phone is still soldiering on bravely everyday.
The update is probably also a good advert for the Nexus S and other possible Google phones in future: it’s good to know that users don’t get forgotten.
