The first Google-branded smartphone, the Nexus One, will soon receive a Gingerbread update.The Nexus One has already been confirmed as getting the Android 2.3 update at some point, and that time has been set for early Q1 2011.The improvements from Froyo to Gingerbread are not as noticeable as the previous one (Eclair to Froyo). This time around, you only get an improved user interface, SIP compatibility and the option of shifting to voice mode to correct text errors.
The following announcement over on the official Google Nexus Twitter page confirmed the upgrade:
“The Gingerbread OTA for Nexus One will happen in the coming weeks. Just hang tight!”
The Nexus One is not unlike the Nexus S; the former was built by HTC and looks like the HTC Desire while the latter is built by Samsung and is an improvement on the Samsung Galaxy S.
Both of them come with a WVGA resolution, a 1GHz processor and 512MB memory. The Nexus One however has a free microSD card reader, a feature that’s absent on the Nexus S.
The Nexus One has already been discounted by Vodafone, which is still the only network selling the handset.
At £25 per month, it is as expensive as the Samsung Galaxy S and includes 100 minutes, 500 texts and 500MB data allowance on a two year contract.
