Android 2.3 Launch On Nexus One This Week?

Google Nexus One could be getting an OS update to the upcoming Gingerbread Android 2.3 platform sometime this week. This is according to a tweet from Alvaro Fuentes Vasquez who happens to work on the leadership team of the Open Handset Alliance – the software conglomerate working on developing Android for the various partner devices. In his tweet, Vasquez has said (Google translated),

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

This is an interesting aside to yet another rumor doing the rounds that suggests that the Samsung made Nexus Two phone that will run on Gingerbread as well is scheduled for launch this Thursday in the United States.

If you are an Android lover, this news should really get you excited. Just about when all Android handsets have started to receive the FroYo upgrade comes the next version. The wait begins all over again.
