Well, that didn't take very long at all. The hotly anticipated Google Nexus S with its Gingerbread-flavored Android operating system has been out for less than a week and it's already getting its first update. The Nexus S -- sourced from Samsung -- will get the first over-the-air (OTA) update bringing the system to GRH78, offering "important bug fixes" and the latest version of Maps.

First OTA update gets pushed to Google Nexus S already

Well, that didn’t take very long at all. The hotly anticipated Google Nexus S with its Gingerbread-flavored Android operating system has been out for less than a week and it’s already getting its first update. The Nexus S — sourced from Samsung —  will get the first over-the-air (OTA) update bringing the system to GRH78, offering “important bug fixes” and the latest version of Maps. Very early reports from users don’t seem to indicate any major changes that are clearly visible, but we’ll keep our ears to the ground to see what Google has done with this update.

If you’d rather not wait for the OTA update, you can do the manual thing and download the file yourself, rename it to update.zip, move it to the root of your internal storage, shut off your phone, turn it back on while holding volume up (bootloader), choose “recovery” using the volume keys, select with the power button, wait for the red triangle, press volume up and power, and choose update. Whew. Maybe the OTA method is worth waiting for.
