Eric Schmidt Shows Off Nexus S Running Gingerbread, Mentions Release Time Frame

We posted this up immediately over at Android Life as it falls under the “general Android news” category, but wanted to make sure all of you saw it.  Google CEO Eric Schmidt was on stage at the Web 2.0 Summit and pulled out a Nexus S running Gingerbread.  He didn’t actually mention who the manufacturer was, but from the shot we grabbed above, it’s pretty obvious.

He also mentioned that Android 2.3 should be out in the “next few weeks” and that Google TV talks with the major networks are going well.

  • I am really glad I read this article! With this it has really helped me with my decision.

    thats a 3.7 belive it or not 3.5-3.7 inch screen sell more than the 4inch

    • Aji

      that's what she said. 🙂

  • Binglut9

    That looks like a small screen. Bust

  • AnDroidSepTIX

    I already got 2.3. its called a black notification bar with green status icons

    Give us some details!!

  • Buckgrad

    Didn't see the whole interview, but in the first few minutes he said Gingerbread would be in the “next few days.” Did he later amend this to” next few weeks?”

    • kellex

      No he said “few weeks” at the beginning, but did reiterate it later on.

    To bad it won't be on a real network. Once again you will see issues with connections and they will try to blame the phone just as they did with the nexus one. It's needs to be on Big Red or AT&T to be appreciated by the masses.

    • I'm just happy it is thinner than the iPhone 4, even if it is on T-Mo: http://bit.ly/9SYjJD

      According to that post and AndroidAndMe's Taylor Wimberly, it might be DUAL FREAKING CORE. Would be amazing. Google and Samsung FTW

      • i would cry if its dual core.. then again, i wouldnt be surprised, seeing as google was the first to release a 1Ghz phone lol. I seriously hope this one actually makes it to VZW unlike the nexus.

    • AT&T? Really? I would say TMO has a better image than AT&T nowadays. The iPhone both killed AT&T and kept them alive. It is the only reason (IMHO) that AT&T is even still around, but is also entirely responsible for the complete downfall and general crappiness that is their network. I agree with having placement on VZW to reach more people, but I really doubt AT&T would even care, they are too busy drooling on their i*hones and fondling their i*ads.

        Your logic in regards to AT&T and the iPhone is quite illogical.

  • FIRST!! im getting the epic and trading it for my original moto droid…..mistake?

    • Michael_NM

      Lots of mistakes in your comment… 🙂
      1. You were third, not first.
      2. Why would you get an Epic and then trade if for your Moto Droid? That seems sill, but maybe that's not what you mean.
      3. Isn't the Epic on Sprint? I wouldn't recommend Sprint to my worst enemy. I said this before, and I'll say it again. A great phone on Sprint is like a Ferrari on a go-kart track.

    • kimir

      get the evo. not the epic

  • Brendan

    first and can you post video

  • Will this run on my original Droid?

    • Yeah Kellex, any news on this?

    • kellex

      Hahah you just had to. 😛

    • I would probably expect ROMs releasing with 2.3.

    • The350zWolf

      Unless the OS itself need a large RAM (more that 256 MB) and clocks greater than 1.2 GHz it should run on the OG Droid. Can't wait for a leak… 8^)
