Google [GOOG] has announced that they will be releasing a patch to fix the 3G issues that users have experienced with the new Google Nexus One smartphone. The patch is expected to fix the problem of spotty 3G coverage that many Nexus One users have experienced.
A Google employee has confirmed that there will be a patch released as a software download that is expected to fix the problem, here is what he had to say about it.
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.
Lets hope the patch is a fix to the problems that Nexus One users have experienced, if you have a Nexus One and are having 3G issues let us know as we are interested to find out how widespread the problem is.
