    Bug fixes for the N1 and video chat for the NS.

    Hopefully it'll fix that annoying bug where you answer a call and get silence for 3 seconds.

    Hopefully it will allow us to enable trackball wake again so we don't have to strain our power button!
    Also video chat would be nice, if only for the gimmick :p

    I don't know anyone who uses video chat on any device. Is this more a US thing, or am I getting old?

    I use it so that my daughter can talk to her cousin. I wouldn't use it for normal calls but it's nice for occasional family chats.

    Does anyone know if the update file that's out for the Nexus S works on the N1?

    It's got hardware dependent stuff in it, so it won't work on a different device than it was created for. This even counts for different versions of the "same" phone (GSM vs CDMA for example, although I don't know if there even was a CDMA version released).

    The list of bug fixes are a little disappointing and seems it's not really worth waiting for. :( (well, unless you are experiencing them I guess). I'd rather see the call delay bug fixed first, that's the only major issue I have.

    Update was waiting to be installed this morning. Will see if it makes any difference to anything.

    Just did the update. I will give credit to google for releasing this in a timely manner to us N1 folks, unlike the Gingerbread update were they kept us waiting for 6 months.

    Sweet. I take the speed at which we got this update as a sign Google is done playing favorites with providers and manufacturers.

    Everyone with a straight up Google Android phone will get them when they are available. I will never ever ever ever ever ever ever buy an android phone/tab with a layer on top.

    I wonder if the small size of it is why the OTA update has been quicker though. Normally Google seem to roll these out gradually.

    It's a shame there's not more Nexus type devices, but they don't get released that often. I still might buy the HTC Sensation, but I'd love to have the option to use Sense, or not.

    I'll wait for the OTA update. Better battery life is always a plus!!

    just got the OTA update to 2.3.4 and indeed, no video chat on N1. :-(
    If I got it, I was going to rig a mirror setup to get the N1 camera turned around and shooting up over the top of the phone. booo

    it does seem quicker but that was just a minute of looking at the camera and gallery apps. I'll have to get some time on it to see if it feels faster in general. Gingerbread did seem to eat some of the battery life so I hope this update brings back some of that loss.

    I found a tid-bit here that turning off My Location: "Use wireless networks" would help with battery life. I tried it over the weekend and I went two days without charging and was still at 30%. I already keep GPS off, but I was surprised that My Location would eat that much battery.

    :( That's the one thing I miss about FroYo. Unfortunately the trackball wake went the way of the one-click lock/unlock (which went the way of the dodo bird:D)

    I like having no trackball waking actually, I found it often woke up by accident, fot example when putting the phone into the pouch. I suppose having this as an optional stting would be ideal.

    An annoying thing I have noticed more and more is that my clock is running late. Having it set to automatic or manual makes no difference - it seems it only synchronizes with the carrier during bootup, which I hardly ever do, and after that it is left to run on its own.
