Well, there you have it. According to Google employee "Ry Guy," the search giant is "no longer investigating" the 3G issue that has plagued several Nexus One owners since the launch in January. Originally blamed on T-Mobile's 3G coverage footprint, a February OTA software update failed to fix the issue. As it stands, Google is recommending that "changing your location or even the orientation" of the phone could solve the problem. Given that the forums are buzzing with comparisons to other T-Mobile phones, the remaining finger could be pointed at HTC and potential build issues.
Needless to say, the comments aren't going over well with Nexus One users, with many in the forums threatening to sell their devices and move on. I'm particularly interested to see how users and prospective customers respond, given the fact that the issue appears to be outside of the software realm. With Google spearheading the Nexus One campaign, will they take the PR hit, or will all eyes be on HTC?
