OTA Android 2.3.3 update for Nexus and Nexus one rolls

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

Google announced in a tweet that an over-the-air update Android 2.3.3 gingerbread has been rolled out for Google's Nexus one and Google Nexus. IT's been a long wait with Nexus one owner, gingerbread has been at the Nexus's for more than three months now.

The update will give the Nexus's more NFC features, such as writing rewritable NFC tags and new API support for developers to take full advantage of the near field communication chips. Various bugs and random restarts has addressed and fixed, too.

Oh, there's a small thing when it comes to the Nexus's users. If you have your Facebook contacts are synchronized, they'll all get deleted. Google has decided to take this step, such as Facebook doesn't really use Android Contacts API to store contacts on the phone, making them impossible to export. Google is against this and as a result of Nexus's and future lead devices won t be able to synchronize your Facebook contacts.

Nexus one, is the first meeting (official, at least) with gingerbread, so congratulations to you, Nexus one owners. Google says that the update can take as long as a couple of weeks to hit the drive, so be patient. In all cases enjoy your reborn Nexus one.
