If you have been living under a rock or maybe you just don’t care, Android 2.3 aka Gingerbread has been released into the wild. The first device to carry the new software update is Samsung’s Google experience device called the Nexus S. Don’t think of the Nexus S as the successor to the Nexus One. Think of it as a re imagining of a new spiderman/batman movie. Got it? Ok..moving on.

Well right now Android developers have just been given the source code of Android 2.3 via the Android Open Source Project aka ASOP. Within 24hours custom roms have popped up for devices like the T-Mobile G2, the Galaxy S, and the Nexus One. Google is expected to update the Nexus One officially sometime soon. I’m sure they want to milk the Nexus S sales first. Who wouldn’t. I wanted to give you guys a brief roundup of all the Gingerbread news and try to create some sort of organization of all the released for different handsets. For you Verizon customers, Verizon is currently evaluating their line up…basically they are seeing what devices will and will not get it. Since they plan to release some new devices in the next few months. Don’t hold your breath too long. Check out the complete list below. It will be updated often so feel free to bookmark.
