XPERIA Play and Arc Android 2.3.3 update released with Facebook Inside [Video]

Sony Ericsson has begun pushing out its Android 2.3.3 update the the XPERIA Arc and XPERIA Play. The update includes the new Facebook Inside XPERIA functionality which Sony Ericsson debuted on the XPERIA min and mini pro. That inserts deeper Facebook integration through the various preloaded apps, including the ability to "Like" the track you're currently listening to in the media player, share updates more quickly, and pull Facebook events down into the phone's calendar. There's also various other bugfixes and the like, along with Google's own minor improvements in 2.3.3. It's rolling out progressively across markets - no word on which is first at this stage - so don't be surprised if the update doesn't show up on your phone quite yet. Sony Ericsson has also confirmed that the Gingerbread update for the XPERIA X10 will include Facebook Inside XPERIA too.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, and Arc getting Android 2.3.3 next week, Facebook included

From the looks of things the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play and Xperia Arc are both set to be receiving the latest and greatest in Android and that is 2.3.3. They mention not only will many bug fixes be included, but what they are calling "Facebook inside Xperia" will be included as well. We are not sure what markets that have the Xperia Play will be getting the update, or if all will be getting it. The Xperia Play was originally considered Google's Gingerbread HERO phone, but the Nexus S is what got first dibs on Gingerbread instead.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 getting Android 2.3.3 update in Italy

The Samsung Galaxy Tab is a nice little tablet by most standards. The device has a nice screen even if that screen might be too small for some users that are more apt to want the larger 10-inch screen that are on tablets like the iPad and others. One of the biggest complaints of some users about the Tab is the older version of the Android OS that the machine uses. The Tab shipped with Android 2.2 onboard. I am sure that a lot of users were hoping that the Android 3.0 update make it to the Galaxy Tab soon. Before the 3.0 update comes, Samsung has upped the OS to Gingerbread.

Direct Installs for Android 2.3.3. Gingerbread for Nexus One and Nexus S discovered

Google's warning that the OTA Gingerbread update for the Nexus S and Nexus One might "take a few weeks" to reach all owners was a dash of unpleasantly cold water to the face; happily, xda-developers have dropped by with a hot towel. They've dug up the official links from Google for the Android 2.3.3 update, which means the impatient can now update their handsets without waiting for Google's schedule to notch along. Two different downloads are available, one for the Nexus One: http://android.clients.google.com/packages/ota/passion/81304b2de707.signed-passion-GRI40-from-FRG83G.81304b2d.zip ... and another for the Nexus S: http://android.clients.google.com/packages/ota/google_crespo/e0b546c442bf.signed-soju-GRI40-from-GRH78.e0b546c4.zip If the links are too slow for you, there's information on mirrors at the original forum post.

Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread Update Includes WebM Support [What is WebM?]

As you may already be well aware, the Android 2.3.3 update for Nexus S and Nexus One has indeed gone out today for the greater good of humanity. What you might NOT know is that this update includes WebM support. What is WebM? It's a relatively new media file format designed specifically for the internet. What a WebM file consists of is VP8 video codec and Vorbis audio codec compressed audio streams. Well wait, what does that mean? Let's break it down.

Nexus S and Nexus One Gingerbread 2.3.3 update going out OTA

Google has begun pushing out Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread updates to the Google Nexus S and Nexus One. According to the official Nexus Twitter account, the over-the-air updates have already started, but users should be patient since it "may take a few weeks for OTA to complete." The update will be incremental for the Nexus S, but the Nexus One's first official taste of Gingerbread. We've just checked one a Nexus One in the UK, and there's no sign of new firmware being available, so it seems we'll have to be patient (or wait for someone to offer a side-loading version of the official ROM, of course).
