Nexus One to support Wi-Fi 802.11n

Google Nexus One 802.11n

Some of you may remember a short time prior to the release of the initial T-Mobile Nexus One, Google had briefly listed in the device specifications that it would support 802.11n.  HTC, on the other hand, never listed the Nexus as having support for the protocol.  Shortly after the slip was discovered, Google’s Nexus One specifications list was edited to solely show support for 802.11b/g.  Rumor now has it that Google and Broadcom (the manufacturer of wireless chipset in the Nexus One) are working together and have entered drivers into the Android repository that will enable the support for Wireless N after all.  There is no solid evidence other than a blurry-cam video posted on YouTube, but just the thought is enough to entice us all.

I guess this is Google’s way of making amends with Nexus One users having the dreaded 3G issues.  If you can’t change your location, just connect to the nearest 802.11n signal.  What say you?  Check out the video below, and sound off in the comments!
