Nexus S and Nexus One Android 2.3 update begins

According to a tweet from the official Google Nexus account, the update to the two Google phones has begun with the Nexus S and Nexus One both updating to Android 2.3.3. No word on which particular regions this update covers initially, but it’ll arrive over-the-air and should take “a few weeks”.

Here’s all of that again inside the 140 character limit:

Do let us know what happens on the European Nexus Ones out there. If anything.

    About bloomin time.

    Hopefully desire next..

    • Considering it took, what? 4 Months between the Nexus One getting Froyo and it finally getting released on the Desire, despite both phones being virtually identical under the hood, don’t hold your breath.

    Sadly Gingerbread breaks essential Tasker functionality. Don’t know about you but I’d rather have Tasker than Gingerbread on my Desire

      Nooooo! Without Tasker Android is back down to the (pitiful) level of iOS. No Gingerbread for me, thanks.

  3. Finally ! it took them a while but glad to hear this. Thanks for the info

  4. Although I’ve been running an AOSP build on my Nexus One for the last couple of months, this release finally means the custom Android builders will finally be able to use Gingerbread-specific N1 drivers, instead of getting it to run with old Froyo drivers instead.

    Roll on Cyanogenmod V7.0 final!

    Of course, now people are complaining about the changing of the colours and to be honest they are not pretty!

    Got my Nexus One OTA this morning. Seems to chew through the battery with no more than regular use. Much better keyboard though. And the newly black notification tab and renewed icons are more like those on the Desire, but nice to look at.

    I thought the update might include the updated Nexus live wallpaper as seen on the Nexus S, but it hasn’t been updated – which is good, because I like the old one.

    Ive now gotten 2 OTA-updates. And my phone has crashed during the install (after the download). Does anyone here have a similar experience?

    Got the OTA this morning. Looks nicer, the most visible changes are obviously the dark theme and new keyboard. Installed smoothly, no crashes experienced.

    However the battery life seems to have drained faster – not sure if it was because I was playing around with it more than usual due to the new upgrade. Will see after a few days of usage and hope it is just that.

    • LG/Google Nexus 5 review

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…

      The HTC One V is HTC’s third entry in its high-profile new HTC One range, offering a smaller 3.7″ display running on a single-core 1GHz processor.
