Google rolls out an update to the Nexus mobile phones

Internet search engine giant Google has announced an update is being deployed to the Nexus series of handsets, which officially brings Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3 to the HTC made Nexus One.

The news of the update was announced over twitter from the @googlenexus account, in a Tweet that reads: “Gingerbread (Android 2.3.3) update now rolling out to Nexus S and Nexus One. Be patient, may take a few weeks for OTA to complete”.

This update delivers a range of fixes to the Samsung manufactured Google Nexus S, which was initially sold by Carphone WareHouse and has now come to Vodafone.

More importantly, the roll out by Google delivers Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3 to the Nexus One phone, which came out early last year and now puts the mobile on an even keel with latest flagship Nexus S device.

There’s a range of Near Field Communications (NFC) updates and improved functionality that unfortunately won’t be apparent to the Nexus One, as it lacks the innate hardware which is a part of the Nexus S.

Android 2.3.3 is also reportedly delivering resolutions to the reboot issue that has plagued some Nexus S handsets, along with other minor problems being resolved too.
