Google uncovers Nexus One 3G network problems

It is a well known fact that the Nexus One has difficulty in hooking up to T-Mobile’s 3G network since the superphone’s release, and part of the problem was due to a software error in the Nexus One’s 3G radio. As for the other reason, that is T-Mobile’s fault as the wireless carrier has a much smaller 3G footprint compared to its rivals AT&T, Sprint and Verizon. Google is already working hand in hand with HTC engineers to roll out a software fix for the radio, where we keep our fingers crossed that their target of an over-the-air update ready by next week will be on time. Bear in mind that this software fix won’t be able to change the pretty limited 3G coverage provided by T-Mobile, so you might want to think about picking up the Nexus One as a standalone handset.
