Multitouch Update Comes To Nexus One Phones

Multitouch Update Comes To Nexus One Phones

It isn’t officially available in Australia, but we figured you’d want to know anyway for future reference: Nexus One users are getting an over-the-air update on their phones, starting today, that will bring multi-touch, pinch-to-zoom functionality to the device.

The much-loved multi-touch gestures of the iPhone have been the envy of Android users in the past, so a hack-free version of the same is very welcome. The update also includes previously mentioned Google Goggles and an update to Google Maps Navigation, including an driver-friendly night mode. Last but not least, the update should improve 3G connectivity on some phones. If you’ve gone the Nexus One import route, it’ll be interesting to see if the update comes through; let us know in the comments.
