Gingerbread set to arrive in the next few days

Gingerbread set to arrive in the next few days
There is no fire without smoke and by all accounts, it seems like Gingerbread is set to arrive in the next few days. First, we all saw a giant Gingerbread man who landed on the Googleplex platform. Then, we told you how you can get your first taste of Android version 2.3 through Google Maps 4.6. And after that, it was followed by the strong rumour that Gingerbread is to be officially offered to developers on November 11.

All of that just points that we're soon to sweeten our lives thanks to the Gingerbread flavour and now, according to Alvaro Fuentes from the Open Handset Alliance "Leadership Team", developers should prepare their well-tested Google Nexus One for Android 2.3 update OTA "in the next few days".

The original Twitter message states:

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

Or, to put it in English, he says the developers should prepare their Nexus One for Gingerbread. While it says that Android 2.3 release is imminent, it also rubbishes the rumour that the Google Nexus Two is coming soon and that it will be the first phone to offer Gingerbread.

This is consistent with all the information we have received up to that point, so that all we have to do is to wait a few more days and see for ourselves what is going to happen.

Great. A good number of us can hear the crickets chirping waiting for Froyo and Google is rolling out Gingerbread.

Good thing I have a HTC Evo 4G, we were the 2nd phone to get froyo and I can count on both HTC and Sprint to roll out gingerbread. If the Nexus One can get this update with no drawbacks then so could the Evo with its awesome specs. Sorry for all of my fellow Epic 4G owners who are still waiting on froyo, I really hope it comes soon as froyo has improved so much for the Evo, I know the Epic will be running even more like a untamed beast.
