It seems that the 3G issues that the Nexus One continues to have may be hardware related. According to an article at TmoNews, Nexus One users are able to change their 3G signal levels just by how they are holding the unit! This is happening despite an OTA update which was supposed to have helped fix the issue. Check out this video that shows how the Nexus One switches from 3G to EDGE when the user changes his hand position.
What is disheartening is that others users are able to replicate the signal state change in the same way as the video above. The 3G issue may not be software related as originally thought, but rather a significant hardware issue. Here’s to hoping that they can get this issue taken care of, Google doesn’t need more problems with the Nexus One.
