The Google Nexus One debuted from T-Mobile USA last week, and the first users of this Android-based smartphone are reporting problems with connecting to 3G. The companies responsible for this device say they are working on this issue.
Nexus One users are complaining that their phones will rapidly switch between 3G and 2.5G connections, or fail to make a 3G connection, in areas with good 3G service.
