Congratulations Nexus One owners, the wait for Gingerbread is almost over. Today, Google has finally begun pushing out the latest version of Android, codenamed Gingerbread, to Nexus One devices. While the rollout is likely to take a few days, it’s likely that if you have a Nexus One, that you will receive it very soon.

Nexus S owners can also look forward to an OTA update as well, which includes fixes for some annoying and troublesome issues, like the random reboot issue, and support for Near Field Communication. It also includes a substantial change that prevents Facebook from syncing the way it used to.

Google is aggressively expanding its anti-Facebook ambitions, and this latest move underpins it in the most obvious way possible.

Who is destined to rule the web? Google or Facebook?
