OTA update for Android 2.3.3 is being pushed out to the Nexus S & One
Call it perfecting timing or something, but the over-the-air update for Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread is miraculously being pushed out to the Google Nexus One and Nexus S!

Although Nexus S owners might not be too overly excited about this one, Nexus One owners on the other hand, are going to be extremely ecstatic because it’s a long time coming. It was only a few days ago when we reported that the Gingerbread update for the handset was going to land “within the next few days” – which interestingly enough was moved up from being available in “the coming weeks.”

Specific to the Nexus S, the onset of Android 2.3.3 brings along some new near-field communication (NFC) capabilities, but it essentially turns the aging Nexus One into a whole new device. As it stands right now, the OTA process is commencing as we speak, but it’ll take approximately several weeks before it gets out to every single device out there. Regardless, we sure know that there are going to be some happy Nexus One owners out there – especially when they’ve held onto the handset for so long now; in spite of some respectable new hardware launching very shortly.
