Nexus One OTA “in the next week or so”

Nexus One owners should expect an over the air update soon that is set to address some 3G issues and possible other fixes. I have had absolutely no 3G problems with my Nexus One, but a limited number of users have reported problems which has led to a flair up on Google and T-Mobile support forums.

Google is taking the issue very serious and Eric Tseng revealed on the Engadget Show that Google, HTC, and T-Mobile were working together to solve the problem by sending engineers to visit customers who complained. It appears Google has already developed a fix and is testing it now.

From the Google Help forums:

I wanted to post an update to the Nexus One Help Forum to let you know what we’ve been working on to help address the 3G issues some of you have been facing. I also wanted to thank you for being patient as we work to investigate the problem, an effort which has included our hardware partners.

Our engineers have uncovered specific cases for which a software fix should improve connectivity to 3G for some users. We are testing this fix now, initial results are positive, and if everything progresses as planned, we will provide an over-the-air software update to your phone in the next week or so. It may be, however, that users are experiencing problems as a result of being on the edge or outside of 3G coverage, which a product fix cannot address.

Thanks again for your patience and for your feedback, and we will continue to keep you informed.IvarGoogle Employee

I know we have quite a few readers with Nexus Ones, so please sound off if you have experienced any 3G connection issues with your phone.
