The Release Of O2's Xperia Play Delayed Due To Buggy Software

"Oh, woe is us. Or, to be more precise, woe is us if we wanted the Xperia Play on the UK's O2 network on the day of its release, April 1st."

For all our UK friends out there - the Xperia Play's April 1st launch on the O2 network has been delayed due to software bugs. The bugs appear to be causing problems only for the O2 phones as Vodafone is planning on taking pre-orders by April 5th. But O2 is the only network that will carry the phone in white so you will have to wait if you want that color. The US version of the Play still is slated for a late spring release. Do you think the US version is having bug issues and that is causing a delay in a definite release date?

Gingerbread Launcher Gently Tweaked Onto Your 2.2 Device

"Want some more awesome Gingerbread porting? Of course you do! Last night, we showed you how to install the Gingerbread keyboard on your rooted device, but today, we've got something else."

Can't wait to get a little taste of Gingerbread on your Android 2.2 device? It seems that those crazy MoDaCo guys are hard at work ripping Android 2.3 apart so we can all have a small sample right now. It's available in the market right now if you just gotta check it out. I'll think I'll just wait a "few weeks" myself. Anyone tried this yet? What do you think?

Gingerbread and Nexus S Announced

"The very first Android phone hit the market in November 2008. Just over two years later, Android's vision of openness has spurred the development of more than 100 different Android devices. Today, more than 200,000 Android devices are activated daily worldwide. The volume and variety of Android devices continues to surpass our wildest expectations-but we're not slowing down. Today, we're pleased to introduce the latest version of the Android platform, Gingerbread, and unveil the next Android device from the Nexus line of mobile products-Nexus S. And for developers, the Gingerbread SDK/NDK is now available as well."

Well, it's official. We've got a new version that's being released to developers, and even is on a production device, the Nexus S. Not looking too shabby Google, now let's see how long it takes us Nexus One users to get it!

The Gingerbread Man Cometh: The Nexus One Is Getting An Update "In The Next Few Days"

Posted by Jason Lee in "Android News" @ 12:00 PM

"Google had originally wanted to launch the Nexus Two device alongside Android 2.3, the next release of their mobile operating system, also known as "Gingerbread". That's not going to happen. The Nexus Two has been delayed. But it appears that Google is full steam ahead on the Gingerbread release."

What wonderful news to wake up to this morning! Will our beloved Nexus One's be getting a taste of Gingerbread this week? I certainly hope so! Far from being official, this news comes from one of the leadership team members of the Open Handset Alliance. So there is a chance that he has some idea of what might be going on. This lines up well with the rumored November 11th release date for the Gingerbread SDK. I'll for sure be keeping my fingers, toes, and antennae crossed. If you get an update in the coming days be sure to let us know.

"Cupcake, donut, eclair, froyo. That's not just a list of Android iterations, it's also an inventory of all the giant decorations..."

A giant gingerbread man has been spotted on the lawn of the Google Headquarters to join his other "sweet treat" friends! Does this mean that gingerbread may soon be out of the oven and ready for our enjoyment? We hope so because gingerbread is always a tasty treat!
