Android 2.3.6 update for T-Mobile's Google Nexus S addresses tethering issues and more
Inching ever closer to its 1-year anniversary, it seems like only yesterday that we were getting super excited about the Google Nexus S for T-Mobile – but as we come to expect, things can literally happen in the blink of an eye. Sure it’s not the shiniest thing anymore on the planet, but this faithful and pure Android powered smartphone is still seeing some much needed love.

Specifically, a software update is now available for the venerable device, which manages to bring Android 2.3.6 into the picture. Packed with the usual set of “bug fixes and security patches,” this 17.5MB software update has the distinctive notoriety of addressing the handset’s tethering woes that some people are experiencing. Moreover, it includes a patch that brings some changes to the NFC function with the handset.

Overall, we’re sure that handset owners are going to be content by this small update, but then again, some might regard them as being spoiled since the handset is known to be treated to the latest and newest Android updates.
