    All I wanna know is when do we find out if the Droid 1 is gonna get it. If it's not, I may upgrade my phone to something new.

    i dont think the D1 will be offically updated anymore. the processor is a bit too slow for what is desired in the new builds. i may be wrong tho....

    Even if we (original Droid owners) don't officially get G/B - we will for sure unofficially get it :wink:

    hell yea!

    i just don't get why the nexus always gets updates first.. last I checked it wasn't the most popular or most used... maybe they're just test dummies

    I am giving it 48 hours before the droid 1 has a working 2.3 ROM.

    The Nexus is a Google Developer Device - I would expect it to be on the cutting edge as far as O/S updates are concerned
