With all of the talk about Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)'s release today, and the upcoming launch of the Samsung Nexus S, there are more than a few people out there, specifically owners of the Nexus One, who are wondering when, exactly, they'll be getting an update to their device. With thew new software's SDK available to download right now, there's sure to be some modified versions of the OS released in no time. But some people want the official, real deal. According to a new tweet from @retomeier, those owners will have to wait a few weeks before they will see an official Over The Air update for their devices.

While an official date may have been better, it's understandable that Google wouldn't have an exact date to go on quite yet. Of course, if the update is anything like the official roll out to Android 2.2 earlier in the year, it's perfectly possible to see some lucky individuals out there get the update long before anyone else, or even before Google officially rolls anything out. If that does happen, it wouldn't be hard to imagine that the update finds its way onto the Internet.

So, if you've got yourself a Nexus One, it looks like you'll have to be a little bit more patient for the update to land on your phone. Of course, "a few weeks" could mean that you'll have a nice present waiting to be downloaded onto your phone by the time Christmas kicks off, so that's something to look forward to.
