At last, one of the sorely missing capabilities we noticed with the Google Nexus One phone arrives: multitouch for the phone's Gallery, Browser, and Maps. Google calls that desirable and long-overdue feature "pinch to zoom functionality."
The update will also include improved Google Maps, version 3.4, and Google Goggles will be available directly on the device. That's a fun app that recognizes objects you frame up in the camera, and finds them for you on the web. And oh yeah, the update fixes some of those spotty 3G issues we noticed too.
If you're Google Nexus One owner, this update will be easy to get — all you have to do is wait and it will be delivered to you, albeit gradually. The Google Nexus One was just raised a notch in our estimation!
