Android Gingerbread heading to Nexus One?

The rumours of Android 2.3, aka Gingerbread's arrival have been coming thick and fast of late, but we didn't expect it to launch on the Nexus One handset.

That's the latest story doing the rounds. According to TechCrunch, Google wanted to launch Android 2.3 on a new handset, but hardware issues have delayed the Samsung-made phone, generally known as the Nexus Two. To compensate, it looks like the Nexus One will get a new lease of life with the new operating system.

The site claims a recent tweet from Alvaro Fuentes Vasquez, a bright light in the Open Handset Alliance (one of the bodies behind Android) read, in translated form as: 'Prepare your Nexus One (Developer version) for Android OTA update 2.3 (Gingerbread) in the next few days:-D'

With existing rumours pointing to a November 11th launch, that could tie in. Want more visible evidence? Well, a large gingerbread man was spotted on Google's lawn last week. That's about as unsubtle as it gets when it comes to hints. More on this when it does actually launch.
