HTC Sense already hacked for Nexus One

When we wrote on Saturday that one of the more obvious differences between the HTC Desire and the Google Nexus One would be rapidly addressed by the Android home-brew crowd, we perhaps didn't expect a custom Nexus One ROM with HTC Sense and Flash 10.1 support to come so soon.  Still, if you're at the bleeding edge and you simply can't wait until the Desire's April 2010 release date to get your hands on the new version of Sense, Modaco are offering an alpha-build ROM for the Nexus One.

One of the biggest announcements from MWC 2010 this past week has been the official debut of the HTC Desire, instantly dubbed the Google Nexus One with HTC Sense.

T-Mobile 3G fix for Nexus One painfully simple?

The Google Nexus One has been one of the more hyped devices in recent memory, and the aftermath of its release has been punctuated with complaints about patchy 3G performance on the T-Mobile USA network.  Some users found that, despite the Nexus One being capable of HSDPA/HSUPA, they were limited to EDGE connectivity, even in areas where other devices were pulling in far faster 3G speeds.  Over at jkOnTheRun they've a basic fix that seemingly addressed the connectivity shortcoming, and it takes all of 30 seconds to implement.
