Nexus One Finally Starts Getting Gingerbread

Google just tossed a tweet out around a half hour ago letting the world know that Gingerbread has begun hitting Nexus One handsets.  Finally, the “next few weeks’ has come to a head, right? Not so fast.  According to the tweet, it could take a ‘few weeks’ to complete.  So, sit patient. Just a few more weeks.  Seriously. We mean it this time.  Technically speaking, we were right back on the 15th when we heard “within the week” as we’re just hitting the seventh day!

Gingerbread (Android 2.3.3) update now rolling out to Nexus S and Nexus One. Be patient, may take a few weeks for OTA to complete. – via twitter

    I have noticed a significant improvement in battery life. Can somebody else confirm this?

    I got a huge increase in internal memory too (about 30GB). And the phone feels smoother and more responsive.

    The new UI elements are great….with the exception of the tiny icons in the system tray and the grey on black notification icons (very hard to see).

    I’d like to hear other folks opinion/experience of the upgrade on an N1.
