Vodafone updates Nexus One

Mobile phone network Vodafone has announced they are rolling out an update to the Google Nexus One handset, which brings with it the latest version of Android.

Vodafone is deploying Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3.4 to the HTC made Google Nexus One, which is more of a maintenance release than anything else.

The new deployment of the Google mobile operating system introduces a number of fixes and improvements to the overall platform, which have been around since May this year to developers.

There are enhancements surrounding the user interface, which is now simpler and slicker. On-board is a new virtual keyboard, with easier copy and paste features, this is in addition to improved power management, internet calling support for VoIP over SIP and multiple camera management, for both front and back variants.

The HTC made Nexus One was Google’s former flagship handset, which has subsequently been replaced by the Samsung manufactured Nexus S.

Google’s Nexus One arrived in the UK in April last year, with a 3.7-inch touch screen, with a 1Ghz processor and a close resemblance to the HTC Desire handset.

Vodafone is rolling out the latest Android version from an over the air update, which brings the build up to GRJ22 where instructions will be delivered in a notification message on how to upgrade.
