Google has made Android 2.2.1 and Android 2.2.3 available to Nexus One and Nexus S, it has been confirmed.
The incremental update addresses the rather shaming bug that surfaced earlier this month whereby SMS messages were inadvertently and potentially embarrassingly sent to the wrong recipients.
Because said handsets run the vanilla version of Android – rather than the custom skin adorned versions that have caused a spate of update headaches - you can grab the upgrade straight away from Google’s servers.
However, while this bump for the Nexus One is sure to be gratefully received, it still means that owners of the handset are still waiting for Gingerbread to hit their phone.
Google originally served notice that it planned to make Android 2.3 available for the phone before Christmas. But weeks later, we’re still marking time for it, prompting some to speculate that the delay is a deliberate ploy on Google's part to boost sales of the Nexus S.
All being well, the wait won’t be too much longer, though. According to an Android insider who blabbed to computerworld.com the search giant has encountered “no unexpected hurdles” and that the roll out will be “starting son”.
