OHA Team Member Confirms Gingerbread Version As 2.3, Hints At Dev Nexus Ones Receiving An OTA Update In The Next Few Days

This week promises to be huge for Android - we've been hearing about the Gingerbread SDK possibly coming out on November 11th, and today an Open Handset Alliance team member Alvaro Fuentes Vasquez announced 2 very important details via his twitter account, namely:

  • Gingerbread will indeed bear version number 2.3, not 3.0

Direct translation of the above, according to Google, is:

Prepare your Nexus One (Developer version) for Android OTA update 2.3 (Gingerbread) for the next few days:-D

imageThe Open Handset Alliance (OHA) was announced on the same day Android was revealed to the world a bit over 3 years ago, with the sole purpose of promoting the open and free mobile platform.

Verizon LTE Expert Confirms Existence Of HTC Incredible HD, Hints At LTE Support

  

A Verizon-bound LTE equivalent of the HTC EVO? Nope, that's no longer just a blissful dream for Big Red users, as @black_man_x, a Verizon employee working in the LTE division, yesterday tweeted out the following message:

2010-11-06 21h12_58

To add on to that, he went on to tell Droid Life that the pictures of the Incredible HD that BGR obtained a few months ago are legit, although the device has since been "refined a bit." We've already seen one great EVO look-a-like, so let's hope this aluminum-clad beast is another.

There are devices both upcoming and already out that are slated to receive the new Sense, and it is nothing short of mind-blowing how much functionality they've added.

Eldar Murtazin Speculates On The Future Of The Samsung Galaxy S: RIP Super-AMOLED Phones?

If there's one man with an inside line in the mobile industry, it's mobile-review.com's  Editor-in-Chief Eldar Murtazin. This guy has a network of informants rivalling any national security agency you'd care to name.

Eldar seems to have some insight into the production and stock of S-AMOLED panels, leading him to think that neither of the two aforementioned phones are in production anymore because of S-AMOLED scarcity.

2.2.1 Update For Nexus One Breaks Universal Androot, Swype, And Other Aftermarket Keyboards

A few days ago, the code for the Nexus One's 2.2.1 update went AOSP (Android Open Source Project), meaning that the source code became available to developers. It was comprised mostly of bugfixes and other things that weren't major... oh, and it also patched the exploits that allowed Universal Androot to unlock your device. We had a short conversation about it on Twitter with Cyanogen (the conversation starts at the bottom and goes up):

As if breaking Universal Androot wasn't enough, apparently the new update also prevents existing installations of Swype and some other aftermarket keyboards from working.

I have tested it on my EVO and can confirm that it is working properly. I'm not sure how such a major screwup could have fallen through the cracks at HTC, but let's hope it won't happen again.
