Can someone explain to me why Nexus One users haven’t been upgraded to Gingerbread?

At first we were treated like the chosen ones, now we’re second to the Nexus S… What gives?

Why don't any of these Androids support real time email? Is it that BB has a patent on that technology? I visited Verizon, the salesperson said I can get a gmail account to push my email through. I don't want a third party in order to have my email delivered in real time. I have a POP3 account through Go Daddy.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Have a good day!!

Pete
