Official word says that Android 2.3 Gingerbread could reach Nexus One users as soon as this week. The info comes from Alvaro Fuentes Vasquez, an OHA (Open Handset Alliance) member who tweeted that Nexus One developer versions should be prepared for Android 2.3 updates in the following days.
Meanwhile, you might already be aware that the Nexus Two was delayed, but there’s a nifty Android-related event scheduled for today, with Samsung launching a new smartphone. Last we heard, Gingerbread was supposed to launch on November 11th and Google might stick to this date, if Vasquez tweeted legit info.
Everything points towards an upcoming release of the new Android version: Google bought a brand new mascot for its OS and the upgrade cycle for the software places the next release around this time of the year.
