Google updates Nexus One to Android 2.2.2

Still no bite of Gingerbread

SOFTWARE DEVELOPER Google has started pushing Android 2.2.2 out over the air to Nexus One owners in the UK.

News of Google's update appeared last week, however Brits had to wait until yesterday to get the relatively small Android 2.2.2 update for their Nexus One handsets. The update reportedly fixes an SMS bug that was highlighted in Android 2.2.1, which was sent to Nexus One owners last month.

The 558KB update takes a minute or so to install and given that Google has not publicised all the bug fixes in Android 2.2.2, it is likely to be a relatively minor update to the Nexus One.

Nexus One owners are still awaiting an update to Android 2.3, which Google has promised will be arriving in the "coming weeks". It said that back in December when the firm launched the Nexus S, and Nexus One owners are starting to get impatient with Google's release schedule.

It is likely that Android 2.3 will tip up on the Nexus One eventually, but given that Google's efforts are focused on the Nexus S, Nexus One owners might have to look elsewhere for future updates.

Nexus One owners who do not want to wait for their device to call home can manually download and install the update. Most will be hoping that Google's next update won't be another minor bug fix but Android 2.3. µ
