[Rumor] Nexus One About To Get the Android 2.3 Gingerbread Update Soon

According to an earlier report, Google’s next flagship Nexus Two was going to be  launched today, on 8 November.

According to  Android and Me, the Nexus Two exists and is coming soon. Samsung will reportedly unveil the Nexus Two in a press event being held on November 8.  Radio Android also picked up the same information through an anonymous tipster. The available information suggests that the new device will be called the Nexus S, and as far as hardware is concerned, will be identical to the  Samsung Galaxy S series of phones. This means that it will sport a 4-inch SAMOLED screen and will be powered by a Hummingbird processor.

That goes in line with the latest rumors of Android 2.3 Gingerbread arriving on some devices. A new rumor has surfaced that claims that Android 2.3 is coming soon to the Nexus One.

Nexus Two has been delayed and the Android 2.3  Gingerbread was supposed to arrive on the 11th of this month, so the release of Gingerbread falls into place with the only announcement on this update (by Alvaro Fuentes Vasquez). Alvaro Fuentes Vasquez, a member of the leadership team of the Open Handset Alliance has claimed the arrival in a tweet saying,

Preparen sus Nexus One (Developer version) para la actualización vía OTA de Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) para los próximos días :-D

that translates to,

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

Now, everyone has his or her eyes set on this decisive Thursday. You can see the tweet that fueled this possible rumor  here.
