Google preps Wi-Fi 802.11n for Nexus One 
smartphone

Posted by Aharon Etengoff

Google is reportedly preparing to enable Wi-Fi 802.11n on its flagship Android-based Nexus One smartphone.

Indeed, the Nexus One Broadcom Wi-Fi chip is expected to support data transfer speeds of up to 600Mbps - as opposed to the current (802.11) 54Mbps limit.

According to Unwired View, the Wi-Fi 801.11n standard for the Nexus One will likely coincide with the release of Android 2.2 (Froyo) in May.

However, an enthusiastic Nexus One owner has already managed to jump the shark by enabling 801.11n on his smartphone via updated Broadcom drivers.
