Following the earlier reported problems, Google has released a software update for its Nexus One Android smartphone, the company unveiled earlier this year. Nexus One users will begin to receive an OTA (over the air) software update on their phones which provides both - some great new features as well as it fixes a few of the reported problems - including a general fix to improve the devices 3G connectivity. Additionally, Google has added Google Goggles which is now available directly on the Nexus One and hasn't to be downloaded from the Android Market anymore.

Furthermore, Google updated some of its applications including Google Maps Mobile and added pinch-to-zoom functionality to the phone's browser, gallery and maps application.

In order to access the update, users will receive a message on the phone's notification bar. From here, the update can be downloaded (via 3G or WiFi) and installed. According to Google, the update will be rolled out gradually to phones - and most users might not receive the notification until the end of the week.
However, if you can't await the update, you can also download it manually from Google's Android page, put the downloaded ZIP file on a microSD card, rename it to "update.zip" and reboot the Nexus One from recovery mode (by holding the power and volume buttons down). Confirm the storage card update and you're done.

Cheers ~ Arne
