Google Nexus One receives Android 2.3

Internet search engine giant Google has announced the newest version of their mobile phone Android ‘Gingerbread' 2.3 OS, is to be rolled out to their own Google Nexus One handsets.

Google made public this news over twitter from their googlenexus account, in a message that reads: "The Gingerbread OTA for Nexus One will happen in the coming weeks. Just hang tight!".

The HTC manufactured mobile phone for Google is set to be the second ever phone to run Android 2.3, after the Samsung made Nexus S for Google - which arrives this week.

Google's Nexus One closely resembled the HTC Desire and arrived with a 3.7-inch AMOLED capacitive touch screen, a 1Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and a 5 megapixel camera.

The Nexus One was the first handset to tip up with Android ‘Éclair' 2.1, in the same way as the Google Nexus S is to arrive running the newest Android ‘Gingerbread' 2.3 mobile phone platform.

One Mobile Ring believes a similar announcement from HTC won't be too far away, with the Nexus One and the HTC Desire handsets sharing almost the same identical hardware where porting the platform across won't be too much of an issue.
