Gingerbread 2.3.3 released for Nexus One and Nexus S

The 2-month wait for the official Gingerbread update for Nexus One is over. Google’s Nexus twitter account announced that Gingerbread 2.3.3 OTA update started to roll out last week and will complete in a few weeks. In the meantime impatient Nexus One owners can install this update manually.

This release brings the number of Gingerbread powered Android devices to 2. On the other hand, for users willing to root their phones, popular customized ROM Cyanogenmod has relatively stable Gingerbread-based CM7 RC1 release for 17 smartphones.

In addition to the previously advertised Gingerbread features, apps now take less space in the internal memory after moving to the SD card, which is a great news for Nexus One since it has only about 190MB of internal storage for apps. Kenny Root of Android team recommends to move apps already on SD card to internal memory and then back on SD to save space.

Nexus S also got 2.3.3 update, which fixes the random reboot bug, adds ability to write NFC tags and disables automatic sync with Facebook contacts.
