    I guess Gingerbread still isn't out for the Nexus One, yet? Even though it's been a couple of weeks since they said a couple of weeks.

    More importantly, I still haven't gotten the new market. And the old market is crashing almost every time I use it, for either updating apps or finding new ones. I also haven't gotten the new market on my Galaxy Tab. But my brother-in-law has a Sprint Galaxy phone, and I saw that he has the new market.

    Is there something I need to do to fix this? Is there anything I can do?

    You should have gotten the update by now. What happens if you do a manual check-in? You do this by dialing *#*#2432546#*#*

    You might also try stutting your phone completely down and rebooting.

    FYI: I just did a manual check-in and my Nexus One on AT&T hasn't seen the update to 2.3 (gingerbread) yet either.

    Look for Gingerbread to show up some time mid-late Summer after the Nexus S has gotten a couple versions of Honeycomb.

    I was replying to his issue with the new version of the Market not showing up.

    Yeah, who the heck knows when Gingerbread will come out - not holding my breath.

    Your market should update automatically. You won't even know when it happens. For my device, I had to reboot it completely before the new version started showing.

    You know, I really wouldn't be surprised if that's how it happens.

    A buddy of mine works for a company that is a vendor to Google and has gotten to know many Google employees since they started to use his employers product.

    He asked one of the Android team (whom he has gotten to know fairly well) about Gingerbread for the N1 and the response was something to the effect of, "things arose that needed to be fixed". He did not indicate if those "things" were N1 related, Gingerbread related or something else related to Android and my friend did not really press him either.

    Yeah right man hanging tight sucks. We know the N1 is hot and fast but I think we just want what is and should be ours, gingerbread. Now I know things aren't going to completely change and I'll have this life changing experience when I get it but I want it( gingerbread ). (Sigh)

    Right now Gingerbread is in the fix the bugs position. They are trying to fix the bugs right now before they put in on the N1. Well other phones have been announced to come out with Gingerbread so N1 users should have it before they come out.

    eWeek is reporting that a bug in Gingerbread, which leaves data on the SD card vulnerable to attack, is still present in the OS, even after alleged bug fixes implemented by Google.

    Is anybody seriously wanting Google to rush unfinished and insecure software to their N1?

    Everyone needs to relax and give Google the time to get it right before pushing it to our phones. If it takes more time, then there will be an extended delay, but that beats the hell out of having buggy, vulnerable software.

    February 18th, 2011 is exactly 8 weeks after the AOSP was released. If it doesn't come by March 1st, I'm just going to assume its not coming at all.

    On a side note, I'm a little peeved that a Gingerbread build has popped up for the Droid X and not yet for the Nexus One. I take stuff like that to be an indicator that a release is coming soon. So much for the "Google phone".

    LOL at how long this is taking.

    Anyone thinking of getting a Nexus S should think twice. I'm sure that device will be abandoned by Google sooner rather than later as well. What a joke.

    this i do agree with...a single core, no microsd, no hspa phone
    cannot be a "flagship" phone for much longer

    the nexus one can arguably be compared to much phones even being release as of last december

    but with dual core phones and hspa+ devices coming I don't see how the nexus S will stand up

    it's gonna start looking like old technology fast

    main reason why i didnt bother wasting my $$ on a NS
    just traded my 3gs for a n1 (which then got replaced by HTC for a refurb) =D

    Nexus S might look more appealing when an LTE Nexus comes out along with LTE pricing... Though hopefully you could still use it on 3G/HSPA+ only without paying for LTE... (obviously this is most applicable for ATT customers)

    The rationale behind the NS is just too curious to me. The purpose of the phone (ostensibly) is to be the reference phone for designers. However, it was long known before the NS was even hinted at that dual-core CPUs would be available in 1Q of 2011 (actually, the rumor was for their availability in quantity before the end of 2010). So a reference phone should, it seem, have the most updated design for the software writers to use.

    Instead, the NS is a good, but not great, phone, with some significant feature omissions and a processor which was at the cutting edge for about 15 minutes following the release of the phone, long since replaced by dual-core beasts about to hit the marketplace.

    My guess is that Google was determined to bring Gingerbread to the public before the end of 2010, and the time required to design and build the NS didn't allow for time to build a phone with dual processors (and perhaps tweak the code to optimize for the CPU). Then, as the release date approached, it was increasingly clear that Gingerbread wasn't ready for widespread release, but the marketing participation of BestBuy was already locked in and Schmidt had made the announcement that the NS and 2.3 would be out before the end of the year.

    The NS owners I have talked to seem underwhelmed by the feature set of Gingerbread (their phone has NFC and nowhere to use it, for example), and have basically paid for the opportunity to help Google beta test 2.3, which wasn't what they signed on for when they paid $500 for the phone.

    Unless Google forks Honeycomb to the Android phones, it would appear that Ice Cream Sandwich will be the next major release for the N1 after Gingerbread eventually makes its appearance. Perhaps ICS will not only provide a significant feature set update but also come riding with a new reference phone; maybe then I'll be tempted to upgrade from my N1. Until then, I am perfectly content with N1 and Froyo.

    We can apparently forget about Gingerbread...Google is apparently moving on already to v 2.4, which is NOT Ice Cream Sandwich, but is instead Honeycomb for phones. The word in this article is that the device with 2.4 is scheduled for release in April...

    Android 2.4 coming April, leaving 2.3 dead on arrival - not Ice Cream - Pocket-lint

    That sounds fine to me. Gingerbread isn't a huge improvement so it makes sense to not waste time on it.

    You know, it that's the case, then I think the very least Google can do is announce this. As I recall they stated that 2.3 was going to be released in a "few weeks" about 6 weeks ago. The really need to is clear up this mess and state their intentions.

    Honest question: What is it about Gingerbread that makes you so desperate to have it? What feature does it have that you can't live without?

    It is possible that you haven't read some of the woes of those with the Nexus S and realized that the OS isn't ready for the world? Software companies do this all the time: Someone at the top makes a promise of a release and the product comes out, whether it is ready or not (one such example which comes to mind is the Blackberry Storm, when the BB OS wasn't ready for a touch device). Google has been pushing OS updates out at a ridiculous rate, and it does appear that their QC is slipping as they attempt to maintain the pace.

    A look at the reviews of Gingerbread (apart from the NS itself) tells me that there really isn't much there to substantiate an upgrade from Froyo; there is the black notification bar (which apparently is a large part of the "increased battery life"), better task management, cut and paste...that's about it. File that under, "Nice to have, but not losing sleep over".

    As for the rest, the improved keyboard (I'm happy with Swiftkey), features for FFC (don't have it on the N1), features for NFC (ditto), support for larger screens (ditto) and more, don't do anything for me.

    I wouldn't mind having Gingerbread if it was pushed out, but for my phone, this isn't the sort of huge leap that Eclair was over Donut, or that Froyo was over Eclair. This is almost more like a maintenance fix. Indications are that Google hasn't pushed it out because they're still squashing bugs (with NS owners having paid $500 for the privilege of being a beta tester), and I sure don't want it if it isn't ready for the general public.

    After talking with some NS owners, playing with the phone itself, and reading the reviews, it simply doesn't appear that whether or not I get Gingerbread soon is any big deal. It doesn't matter to me what someone at Google tweeted weeks ago as a "promise", because I don't feel that I need what he was promising.
