Nexus One

You read that right, folks. The update to Google's Nexus One that we thought would just be a basic 3G fix instead has been loaded with other goodies, including:

  • Google Googles will now be baked into the ROM.
  • Google Maps is being updated to sync starred items and search suggestions with the desktop version, and it automatically switches to night mode in Navigation to make it easier to read.
  • The aforementioned 3G fix.
  • And pinch-to-zoom. (Squee!) Yes, multitouch in the browser, gallery and maps.

Keep an eye on your notifications bar, which is where you'll be alerted that the update is ready for you. Google says it will be rolled out gradually (sorry, that's just the way it is), and that you might not get the update until the end of the week. Let us know if and when you get it! [Google]
