Nexus One

I have been fairly vocal about my impatience with waiting for the Gingerbread update for my Nexus One. Every few weeks, Google seems to give another announcement that Gingerbread is coming “in a few weeks.” Well, it looks like it’s deja vu all over again. The Google Nexus Twitter feed said today that “The Gingerbread OTA for Nexus One will happen in the coming weeks. Just hang tight!”

We’ve already seen a Gingerbread ROM hit the Nexus One through the dev community, although it is still early and is missing some features. I never expected Google to be in a race with the dev community to bring an OS update to the Nexus One, but that’s exactly where we are. It looks like the official Gingerbread update won’t be hitting the Nexus One until January, so let’s see if the guys at XDA can post a fully functioning ROM before then.
