Android 2.3 aka Gingerbread headed to the Google Nexus One in a few days

According to Alvaro Fuentes Vasquez, member of the Open Handset Alliance, Google is about to push the android 2.3 aka Gingerbread release to the Google Nexus One in the coming days. Contrary to what was originally thought, gingerbread is not Android 3.0 but 2.3 (3.0 is codenamed Honeycomb) and the full feature set is still unknown even though the update is about to see the light pretty soon. What everybody has been waiting for is a fully GPU accelerated UI but I wouldn’t be surprised if this only came with 3.0 next year. The blurry shots and footage of Gingerbread that have recently leaked look somewhat identical to what is currently available in 2.2 in terms of UI.
