Not a developer

I am not a developer. I approach this announcement from the standpoint of a user. I have an Android phone, the NexusOne, which currently has FroYo on it, Android 2.2. Google announced back in November that Android Gingerbread, version 2.3 would be coming to NexusOne users "in a few weeks". It became available today, albeit as version 2.3.3. Becoming available today does not mean my phone will get it today, nor any time soon, based on the fact the update was originally announced almost 3 months ago. Meanwhile Google has already announced the tablet version of Android, and has announced the phone-centric version of this tablet version, and they have today announced, via the article that is the subject of this article, version 3.0 of Android, which I have to assume will be for phones and/or tablets. So, while my NexusOne might someday be updated to Gingerbread 2.3, it and the NexusOne's of other owners will still be several versions out from the most current software, and will as a result, be missing some of the tweaks and updates that would bring it fully up to date. I hope this clears up where I am coming from.
