Vodafone, which was the only UK network to stock Google’s very first own-brand Nexus device, has released the long-awaited update to Android 2.3.4 for buyers who bought the phone through its network rather than unlocked via Google’s aborted online shopping system.
Here are the facts from the announcement:
A new maintenance release for the Google Nexus One is now available to Vodafone customers. This is an Android platform update to Gingerbread 2.3.4 which introduces a number of fixes and improvements including:
·UI Enhancements (simpler and slicker)
·New Android Keyboard, with easy copy/paste feature
·Improved Power Management
·Internet Calling support (Voip over SIP)
·Multiple Camera Management (front and back)
And look at that. It’s still for sale through Vodafone, now “free” on £26 tariffs. That’s not bad at all. The Nexus One is definitely a survivor.
