    So does that mean that we are going to have to wait even LONGER to see an OTA update on the Nexus One?
    If 2.4 "Ice Cream" or modified 2.3+4 "ginger bread" or whatever they are going to call it is only going to add the support for dual cores then what about 2.3? There would be no point to give the Nexus One users 2.4 right? And if they do intend to forgo giving use 2.3.. how long are we going to have to wait for 2.4?

    this is balls!


    :cheer3:
    its possible that this is why they didn't give us 2.3 from the start. they have known this was coming and perhaps will go straight to this. they have probably had us ready for this update for awhile and are waiting for the right time to update us
    If I had to name my greatest strength, I guess it would be my humility. Greatest weakness, it's possible that I'm a little too awesome.

    I seriously hope that you are right.
    I think that will be a huge mistake on their part if they make us wait even longer before we get an update. Specially considering there were all those rumors floating around that we were supposed to get it back in December and then again in January.

    I still definitely want to see either ice cream or gingerbread at some point in the near future..

    I might just end up rooting!

    I disagree with you there because if this was their plan all along then why would they have said back in December (I think) that we were going to have a 2.3 update in a few weeks that just would make no sense.

    it very well could have been that google had no idea what they were doing.
    Or perhaps they messed up their release schedule by not anticipating the reception that honeycomb would get. now they are in this sort of grey area of whether or not to even bother with 2.3 or just release 2.4 still under the gingerbread name... at any rate with the introduction of honeycomb it sort of seems like the android os is going to start to go down two separate paths. I just hope that the smartphone people don't get hosed because everyone is focusing on tablets

    Why not think this way? GB 2.3 is not good enuff for N1. Its buggy and not fit for King of Google Phone aka Nexus One.

    Lets see if Google sends us Android 2.4 instead :D

    In my opinion the phone manufacturers have gotten ahead of the operating system with these dual core phones and now google is trying to catch up by releasing 2.4 as quickly as possible (hence they are leaving 2.3 on the roadside, even for the N1). Even the most recent OS, 2.3 Gingerbread, isn't meant for dual core processors, yet phone manufacturers are getting ready to release dual core phones running on 2.2! I believe there will be some major drawbacks from this and that, after official testing, people will begin to realize that all they get with a dual core phone running 2.2 is slightly better performance with significantly less battery life. Its in google's best interest to release 2.4 as quickly as possible so the negative aspects of dual core phones running 2.3 and under are minimized. I just hope that this isn't the end of the road for us N1 users and that 2.4 will work on our phones as well.

    I thought this was relevant

    from @charansingh
    Bio Medical Student, Developer, Coffee lover, Cyanogenmod Team, Droid Gamers Team, Linux and Android FTW!!!

    I might just give up on android the way Google is treating their own phones, atleast Apple supports them for some years.Its plain BS @google
    Atleast Apple doesnt force you to buy iphone 4 when you have 3gs by not providing 3gs owners update to latest features
    I dont think careers or Manufacturer should be blamed for delaying updates when the company behind the OS fails to set a good example
    All the testing for gingerbread was done on Nexus One, there are even commits that show testing was done on n1 way before ns was though of
    and liek i said they had a fully working n1 gingerbread update before n1 was released. They are just trying to sell year old hardware to dev
    which has worse features than Galaxy S, its sibling released over 6 months ago. I still love android but Google is something i am hating now
    I recommend Android phones to my known, they end up buying it and blame me for lack of support and content for their devices when 3 year old
    phone has more and better content than their newly bought phones
    If n1 doesnt receive update from Google over next week or so, its a big FU to @Google Your new features are worth nothing when older
    devices cant enjoy them

    Interesting note you put. It puts a bit of a negative light on google.
    It is dirty of disappointing to read because I hate
    Apple and refuse to own an iphone. I just hope
    Google gets their act together and starts supporting their devices
    like they promised everyone they would.

    my fear is that the nexus one will get left behind.
    Specially with tablets seemingly taking over the world.

    here's hoping google does the right thing and continues to
    support all its devices

    Good to hear, you found it relevant

    Charan is an indie developer (for the Cyanogen MOD team)

    Perhaps when you are READY you will ROOT to try his, @cyanogen @koush and @cirwl 's stuff

    They have a much more efficient OS compared to Google's

    PLUS you can remove(or Freeze) Nasties like AmazonMP3

    Apart from App2SD Support for ALL Apps, you can

    One Click & clear all Caches/ Reboot...

    Performance/ Battery/Memory improvements

    (sounds too good? i thought so myself till i turned to the Dark Side)

    I'm going to fight my personal desire to rename this thread "the whiners and complainers hovel", and let my Admin duties keep my head from betraying my fingers...

    BUT, I cannot let this childish drivel pass without injecting my own commentary as a Nexus owner. Anyone care to guess what that opinion is? Well, at least beyond the contempt that I feel for the sense of entitlement that has infected my happy little group, that is...

    I'm not surprised in the least that a developer would put that kind of crap out; particuarly one of cyan's minions. But to see once sane and rational people jump on that bandwagon of *****ing is more than I can stomach without comment.

    Ok, I'm out of this one for keeps. I promise. /Temptaions on/ Rant on, whiners, rant on. \end Temptations\
