More than two months after making its debut with the Nexus S, Gingerbread is finally coming to the Nexus One.

Readers may recall hearing back in December that the HTC handset would see Android 2.3 within a "few weeks." The same time frame was given more than once, ultimately resulting in a few months' wait time.

However, the official word of the Gingerbread update came courtesy of the Google Nexus Twitter account last night, where it advised Nexus One owners to be patient. According to them, it may take a few weeks for the over-the-air update to hit all handsets.

Let's hope these next "few weeks" go faster than the previous.
