We're all just waiting for the Nexus S to officially be on sale and then the timer starts for official OTA'S or source located updates. Being first with 2.3 is huge for promotional and potential sales purposes so Google is keeping tight tabs on it. We're just spoiled having our N1's and the first release of upgrades. Gingerbread was tested primarily on N1's, so we'll see it first for non new release phones. Honeycomb is also nearing release, so additional patches will no doubt come along with that. Pure Android is gaining one new member to its exclusive club with the Nexus S, joining G1, Droid, Nexus One, & G2. I'm looking forward to it's release :nexusx:

I simply don't understand why they don't release Gingerbread to the N1. The NS is out now. There is nothing else to hide. I wonder if someone with a NS could pull the OS from it and make it available for us to manually update. I heard there there some ports of gingerbread already for some other devices.

What's the build number on the NS Gingerbread? I haven't seen anybody post that yet.

If they release it to the n1 now think about how the android headlines would change. Everything you Reagan right now is about the s. When they put the update out to the n1 that will change. I imagine they want as much free advertising as possible before they put the update to other phones, so that the s has some exclusivity appeal. Just my thoughts on it

I believe Ice-Cream will only for Nexus S or newer phone. Nexus one may not be able to handle icecream but always hope nexus one has unlimited update.

Well then if my theory still holds, GRH55 is a Gingerbread and Honeycomb hybrid with some room to grow with the build number at 55. I'm thinking Ice Cream would be the last supported software. The NS isn't much beyond the N1 so they wouldn't orphan that so quickly quickly either. Wishing for a Nexus Duo. That wouldn't be a 2, but a dual core version. :nexusx:

I think Google have to be careful though. Imagine if they released it after Christmas, I think most Nexus One owners would be seriously annoyed (myself being one of them) since we have 'Pure Google' phones already and have shown our loyalty and support to them by buying into Nexus One.
If they upset us N1 owners, then they could loose out because people would stop loving them as much and may be swayed to buy into the dark side (Apple!)
Nothing is perfect, but we must not lose faith in perfection. If we did, everything would be a whole lot worse than it is now!

We wont be seeing a mass dual core cell phones till late next year, and i think it will be another year before google backs another phone, just like they did G1, nexus one, and now nexus s.
