Android 2.3 is Gingerbread and Coming soon to Nexus One Soon

android-gingerbreadGingerbread has been rumoured for the longest time but it now seems like it is coming very soon. As a Open Handset Alliance member has confirmed over twitter that Gingerbread will be 2.3 instead of 3.0 and it will be available to developer versions of Nexus One handsets in the next few days.

The tweet translates literally to:

"Prepare your Nexus One (Developer version) for Android OTA update 2.3 (Gingerbread) for the next few days:-D"

This probably means that we will see an officially announcement of Android 2.3 very shortly and it coming to developer versions of the Nexus One soon after. So all you N1 owners, look forward to some Gingerbread coming your way.

HTC Desire Z demo video

htc_desire_z Last week James treated us to a quick unboxing video of the new HTC Desire Z and then passed it over to my for review.

So I thought I would start off with a little demo video of just a few of the key features of the HTC Desire Z to give you a flavour of what to expect before I get my review live here on the site. It’s not the final retail version of the box etc. but the handset and software is very unlikely to change before it goes on sale here in the UK.

As always, if you want to ask me any questions you can do so via the forum or if you want to make sure that I cover something in the review that you are specifically interested then let me know!
