Thanks to its stock Android build, the Nexus One still is near the top of the list when it comes to receiving the latest Android updates from Google. Being a senior citizen though, some of the newer features on Google's open source OS have to be eliminated
. For example, while Nexus S users received Google Talk voice and video chat with their update to Android 2.3.4, N-One users will soon get an OTA update to the same Android build minus the Google Talk features. The reason for the lack of video chat on the Nexus One is simple. The phone was launched at a time when front-facing cameras were basically non-existent.
The update will also improve battery life for the N-One along with improved accuracy for the phone's location tracking services. Some owners of the device complained about the loss of accuracy using the phone's GPS application after Android 2.3.3 was installed.
