Google Says Partial Nexus One 3G Fix On the Way
Today Google indicated that it has discovered the root cause of the Nexus One's difficulty in connecting to T-Mobile's 3G network. Part of the problem is due to a software error in the Nexus One's 3G radio. Another part of the reason some customers are experiencing poor 3G performance is due to T-Mobile's smaller 3G footprint. T-Mobile's 3G network is much smaller than those of AT&T, Sprint and Verizon. Google said it is working with HTC to develop a software fix for the radio of the Nexus One, and may have an over-the-air update ready as soon as next week. The software update will not, however, improve the 3G coverage provided by T-Mobile.

"The software update will not, however, improve the 3G coverage provided by T-Mobile."
