Nexus One users get some Android 2.3 love, both OTA and manually stimulated

Nexus One owners rejoice. Google has finally released Android Gingerbread (2.3.3) for your mass consumption. Officially, you can get the update over the air here in the next week or so, but if you’re impatient (as most of you are) you can download the update directly from Google’s server and manually update. While the manual update process uses the same signed code as the over the air, it requires a little more work and Google hasn’t stuck their head out to tell you to do it this way, officially.

While Nexus One owners will be the most excited, there is also an update for Nexus S owners, which fixes some bugs and adds some new features to the NFC chipset. With this release, both Nexus phones from Google are now the two most up to date devices running officially released and supported versions of Google Android.

Excellent step by step instructions on how to update the device manually can be found over at Android Central for the Nexus S, and the Nexus One.
