No one’s surprised that when the Nexus One was released, it was compared to the iPhone, and the Android device came up short was the multi-touch. Now an over-the-air software update will let the Nexus One users to pinch and zoom all they want.

The pinch-to-zoom function will work when people are messing with the phone’s browser; it’s gallery or the Google Maps applications. This will be a good thing to those who though they’d be without this feature permanently. There’s a possibility that this update will get a few extra purchases as well.

The addition is not the end of the update either. “[W]e will provide a general fix to help improve 3G connectivity on some Nexus One phones,” promised an official blog post. “Will now be available directly on your device by launching it from your All Apps menu. Just use your Nexus One camera to start searching the web,” was added.
