When consumers got their hands on Google’s (then) flagship Android phone the Nexus One, they were promised to receive operating system updates first, before any other Android phone available on the market. When Google released their second flagship phone, the Nexus S, it looks like the Nexus One has been relegated to second place. Sure, people didn’t expect Gingerbread to arrive right away, but it’s come to the point where third party custom ROM developers have brought the latest version of Android to the phone before Google themselves! All their tweets promising that the update will be arriving soon sure sound like empty promises now. Well, a recent blog post on Computer World brings a little ray of hope to all the Nexus One owners who have been waiting patiently. Apparently a member of the Android team told the writer that there have been no unexpected hurdles in bringing Gingerbread to the Nexus One and that the rollout should be starting soon. However, “soon” sure is pretty vague and we have no idea when that is. But let’s hope it won’t take longer than another month. How many of you are still holding out for the official update and how many of you have decided to take things into your own hands?
