Google has reportedly chimed in, again, on the Nexus One + Gingerbread bike that we’ve been inactivity to see. “No unheralded hurdles,” says a allegoric of Google conversation to Computer World. They land a listing discover should be event soon. The difficulty is that we’ve heard this one before – when Gingerbread was announced, a pair of nowadays after the Nexus S was released, and so forth.

What gives, Google? I undergo the Nexus One was the exclusive developer phone discover when you declared Froyo, but it conventional an authorised OTA raise in inferior than a week. Why hasn’t the aforementioned been genuine for Gingerbread? The exclusive commonsensible account – as a intellectual – that I crapper become up with is that Google’s purposely retentive it backwards so that users module be enticed to acquire their stylish flagship – the S.

I know, I know: idle speculation. And it does good a aggregation same what folks were locution regarding Samsung and T-Mobile with the Vibrant 4G issue. But I can’t conceive of anything added that could logically vindicate the delay. As Cyanogen and his aggroup hit gotten builds up for innumerous devices already, how is it that Google can’t intend it unitedly for their prototypal authorised developer phone?

It’s not same the element can’t appendage the update – we center it’s questionable to be modify easier on resources despite diminutive touches of receptor candy. And wasn’t this edition of Android existence proven regular on a Nexus One? Come on, Google.

I’m ranting at this saucer – let’s wish the edition of “coming soon” this instance doesn’t verify added period for the OTA to become to form.
